FSU lands junior-college RB Webb

Junior-college running back La’Damian Webb committed to Florida State on Saturday night.

The 5-foot-8, 190-pound Webb was visiting FSU this weekend. His commitment helps solidify a running back corps that will lose Cam Akers to the NFL, while the status of Khalan Laborn and Anthony Grant remain question marks going into spring practice.

Webb will make his decision official on Feb. 5 and will arrive on campus this summer.

This past season Webb ran for 940 yards and 10 touchdowns in nine games, which earned him second-team JUCO All-American honors. He also caught 12 passes this season for 151 yards. Webb’s average of 104.4 rushing yards per game was the third highest in all of junior college football this season.

Webb signed with Mississippi State out of high school but instead went the junior college route.

He chose FSU over schools like Ole Miss, Missouri and West Virginia.

    Out of the two RB’s they brought in this weekend Webb was my favorite. He is more developed physically than Wren is and can come in and compete right away for playing time in the fall. I am not sure Wren can play as true freshman. Will be interesting to see how Webb’s commitment will affect the official visit status of RB Jalen White, who is scheduled for next weekend and Daijun Edwards who is scheduled to visit on the 31st. FSU has now added three RB’s to next years roster since Mike Norvell arrived on-campus.

    This kid looks like he has all of the right stuff to be a very solid contributor and looks to be ready to play immediately. Love the balance, power and toughness he runs with. Looks like a very natural TB and a good get.
