DeMatha OL will check out PSU

Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha offensive tackle Richard Webb is the next big offensive lineman to come out of DeMatha.

Listed at 6-foot-7, 325 pounds, Webb is yet to pull in any offers, but he says that may change once he's able to hit the road.

"I just have schools showing a lot of interest so far," said Webb. "A lot of schools said they want me to go up to their school before they offer me. A lot of schools have been showing a lot of interest, the main schools are Florida, Florida State, LSU and Penn State University."

So far, Webb has only been able to check out Maryland, which he enjoyed. However, that should all change in a few weeks.

"I should be getting real active during my spring break, I should be hitting the road then. I haven't had a lot of time to visit schools so far, but that wi'll change soon."

So where might Webb be headed?

"I'll definitely be going to Penn State, I'm positive about that. I'm going to their day in March," referring to March 26. "I'm not sure exactly where else I'm going to yet, I don't think they will be junior days, I'll probably just check out their campuses.

"I'm communicating with most schools through email and the phone. There are some coaches that have been adding me on Facebook, but I'm not completely sure what the recruiting guidelines are for that, some of them can't respond, I'm not exactly sure how that works."

Webb added that visits to Florida State and LSU are likely sooner than later, but right now, it's all about next season.

"I'm just weight lifting right now, training for the season. Me and the other offensive lineman have been working really hard in the off season, doing a lot of training with our coach.

"We've just been preparing really hard for the season so we can win back the WCAC Championship."

With Rivals250 prospects Brent Wilkerson and Michael Moore on his team, Webb plans on joining those two at some top camps in the northeast this spring.

"I have a few coming up that I'll be doing in the spring and summer. I'm definitely going to Penn State's Nike Camp and Penn State's football camp. Some other camps I plan on going to are the Under Armour camp and another Nike Elite camp, but the only ones for sure right now are the Penn State football camp and the Penn State Nike camp."
