For the past couple of months, the Colorado football team has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of quarterback Davis Webb.
Despite reports on Friday evening that Webb is in Berkeley, Calif., this weekend to visit a Pac-12 rival, the Buffs are still counting on Webb being in Boulder this summer.
Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports reported that Webb, a graduate transfer from Texas Tech, is visiting Cal this weekend. Webb, who has verbally committed to Colorado, informed CU that he is visiting the Cal campus but still plans to be a Buff.
"He gave me his word he is coming here," CU co-offensive coordinator Darrin Chiaverini said. "No worries."
Chiaverini, who was hired in December after two seasons at Texas Tech, was a big reason for Webb deciding to transfer to Colorado.
A 6-foot-5, 225-pound senior-to-be, Webb has one season to play and is considered by many to be the front-runner for CU's starting job. He threw for 5,557 yards and 46 touchdowns in three seasons at Texas Tech.
Although Webb has signed a financial aid agreement with CU, that is not binding. Webb is not bound to a school until he enrolls in classes, which he won't do until the summer. Until then, Webb has the right to change his mind to go to a different school.
Two weeks ago, Webb told BuffZone.com that several schools have continued to contact him, but that he "hasn't thought about anything else" except coming to CU.
"I love the Buffaloes and I want to be the (CU) quarterback for the 2016 season," he said two weeks ago.
