Colorado was looking forward to the addition of graduate transfer quarterback Davis Webb from Texas Tech, but the former Red Raiders quarterback has been checking out other potential options lately despite previously committing to the Buffs. While Webb pays visits to Cal and Auburn, Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre is not spending time worrying about losing Webb to another program.
“The Auburn report, I think, is erroneous,” MacIntyre said in a report from BuffZone.com, referring to reports on Monday linking Webb to a potential visit to Auburn. It is true, however, that MacIntyre visited another Pac-12 school, Cal. Despite his recent visit to Cal and reports of a future visit to Auburn, MacIntyre insists he trusts Webb will still end up at Colorado.
“He’s told me he’s coming time after time, so I just trust what he says,” MacIntyre said.
It is still entirely possible Webb will end up heading to Boulder, where he would immediately step into the quarterback competition with a good chance to start this spring. He has signed a financial aid agreement with the program, but that does not lock him out from evaluating other potential options. Other schools may continue to recruit him as well, and it is clear both Cal and Auburn have some holes to plug at quarterback. Cal is losing Jared Goff to the NFL while Auburn just has an unsettled quarterback situation even with players returning this year.
