Quarterback Davis Webb is finishing up his degree at Texas Tech and is still committed to playing at CU in the fall, but he took a visit to Cal over the weekend. An ESPN report said Webb is now planning to visit Auburn.
“The Auburn report, I think, is erroneous,” Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said.
Regardless, Webb did visit Cal, but MacIntyre said he remains confident that Webb will join the Buffs in the summer.
“He’s told me he’s coming time after time, so I just trust what he says,” MacIntyre said.
High school players sign a binding letter of intent but grad transfers do not. Webb has signed a financial aid agreement with CU, but he’s still free to look at other schools — and other schools are free to recruit him. MacIntyre is not fond of that rule.
“I don’t like it when grown men try to manipulate young people after they’ve already signed (a financial aid agreement) somewhere,” MacIntyre said. “The way the rule is set up for transfers, he can’t sign a national letter of intent, so it’s open season for people and it’s not right.”
