Damon Webb was your most wanted in this 2014 class?
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
LOL at the very start yes. I paid more attention to him more than any other 2014 recruit during the 2013 cycle. I thought he was the best player I have seen at Cass Tech for the past few years. I really like Jourdan Lewis too but Damon Webb is just bigger. Webb is a great receiver and I saw him go 1 on 1 vs Treadwell and was very impressed. I thought he was for sure going blue but he broke my heart. I don't like him now, but if he jumped onto Michigan's bandwagon I sure wouldn't mind. I obviously have other favorites now though. Jabrill, JuJu, Drizzy Drake, and Adoree
Damon Webb was/is definitely a top 3-5 kid I wanted in this class. Silly good. Lockdown.

Webb is a very good prospect, but by no means "lockdown". He doesn't have elite speed, and will get beat every now and then.
It definitely isn't a good thing that he's going to OSU, but Westphal is every bit the prospect Webb is.. if we can get him on board, it will help make up for it.
Respect your opinion, but I just dont put Westphal on Webbs level and I do really like Westphal. Webb could be a top 10 WR nationally if he eweanted to also. What makes Webb so intriguing is he is still so raw at the corner position, yet already sooo good at it. Perfect body/frame for a big-time corner nowadays also. Parker also has a great frame for a CB. Also, Webb is faster than Westphal IMO. Webb is pretty much what you look for in a potential lockdown corner. You gotta get off the line against him first. Long arms and strong for a corner. Does lack technique, which is why he can occasionally get beat. Pretty sure EVERY corner gets beat lol. You can still be considered "lockdown". But hey, maybe its too early for that.
I like Webb and Westphal both. I think Webb is the more athletic one and Westphal is the more physical one. Both are lockdown in my opinion though
"Lockdown" doesn't exist in football anymore.
cant please anyone on this board

i should just down vote you.actions speak louder than words
Seriously? Don't forget to take your blood pressure meds.
I agree that Webb is smoother and might be a touch faster, but for what our coaches are looking for in a CB Westphal is almost a perfect fit.
He is already advanced with his technique, is physical and can play the run, and has good instincts.
Like I said before, with the way football is evolving there really aren't any lockdown CBs anymore. The offense just has too many advantages. Also, technique is part of the reason for the times where Webb is beaten, but I've also seen kids just run by him on a couple occassions. Not saying that it didn't/couldn't happen to Westphal as well. I just expected better recovery speed from him than I saw.
Agree. People are really splitting hairs here. Both are excellent looking prospects and we would happily take either (or both). Losing Webb to Ohio sucks, but the pool of elite CB prospects is deep this year. We still have multiple very good options.

LOL he is everyone in the countires favorite! I was really just talking about guys that could replace Webb's athleticism that he would have brought to us. all of the guys I named except for Harris can be elite on defense and offense just like I thought Webb could be, Harris is in there because he will be our next Braylon
Webb is an elite prospect. Westphal is a very good one. Their is a difference. Webb should end up being a stud for OSU... Sorry guys, just my opinion.
I dont get it but obviously I wasnt seriously banging my head against a wall. Its an emoticon guy...you serious?figure it out chief haha
@AllenTrieu: #Alabama offers Fayetteville Manlius (NY) 2015 DL-TE Tyrone Wheatley Jr.
GTFO Saban! Tyrone is going to continue the legacy!!!
Ya...this is one guy i'm not worried about Bama beating us on.
i cannot believe we are interested 15 kids
I'm interested in any kid that is interested in UM
I'm with you. I was more so posting that because if Saban wants a guy chances are that guy is a stud. Just further evidence that our coaches have an eye for thee guys in ea class.
All this does is make Wheatley have that much more impressive of an offer sheet. No competition here. All blue.
When he says that himself I will believe he is all blue. I know his dad wants him to continue his legacy, but he hasn't stated us his leader himself yet...I really wanted James Crawford last year because of who his uncle was and was hoping we would at least offer him as a grey shirt or something because he was absolutely ALL BLUE and wanted to carry on his uncles legacy. Even though Mcquay was a bust he still didnt get the offer, it went to Reon Dawson instead and I am not a fan of Dawson...
