One of Pennsylvania’s top prospects, Mark Webb, may be moving south for his college career.
Webb, a 4-star wide receiver out of Warminster, Pa., announced his top-6 on Friday night. Two of the six that made the cut were SEC powers, Georgia and Alabama.

Webb is a major target for Georgia at wide receiver, who recently lost a wide receiver commitment from Xavier Jenkins out of Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Ga.
Webb spoke to Dawgnation’s Jeff Sentell at The Opening last week about Georgia,
“It is a home away from home,” Webb said about Georgia. “It just hit a spot for me. It is just like (the feeling of) me going to Penn State, but I went to Georgia. It was just home.”
Webb also said told Sentell that if he were to commit now, he would pick the Bulldogs. He also mentioned Penn State as one of the schools after his services. Georgia is also after Pennsylvania’s No. 1 prospect, running back D’Andre Swift. Swift is a 5-star recruit and the No. 31 overall player in the country.
But Webb has had Georgia as his leader for awhile. Even before the Bulldogs made Webb an offer.
“I went up there and it felt like I had the offer when I went there,” Webb said. “I was treated like I had the offer even way before I even went there.”
Webb is the No. 15 wide receiver in the country and the No. 5 player in the state of Pennsylvania. The Bulldogs, despite the loss of Jenkins, still have the No. 2 recruiting class for the class of 2017, sitting just behind Ohio State.
Webb is ranked higher than either of the Bulldogs two committed receivers, 4-star Trey Blount and 3-star Matt Landers.
