Junior college All-American running back Ladamian Webb has signed his National Letter-of-Intent with FSU on Wednesday morning.
Webb becomes the third running back FSU coach Mike Norvell has signed for the class of 2020. Lawrance Toafili signed during December’s early signing period and Jashaun Corbin transferred from Texas A&M and is already enrolled in classes for the spring semester.
The Seminoles also hold a commitment from running back Corey Wren from John Curtis High School in New Orleans, who is expected to sign with FSU this afternoon.
This past season Webb, who is 5-foot-8 and 190 pounds, ran for 940 yards and 10 touchdowns in nine games, which earned him second-team JUCO All-American honors while playing for Jones (Miss.) Junior College. 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 originally signed with Mississippi State coming out of Beauregard High School, where he had a phenomenal career. In three varsity seasons he ran for 6,750 and 92 touchdowns on 661 attempts. He also caught 29 passes for 507 yards at the prep level. Webb also proved himself to be surehanded with the ball, having totaled just three fumbles in his high school career.
There isn’t a lot of junior college tape on Webb for public consumption, but I certainly liked what I saw of his high school tape. While he might not have track speed, he showed football speed at the high school level. Webb is a compact and powerful runner with the ball in hands. He shows great vision, balance and does an outstanding job of setting up and working off his blockers. Webb has an outstanding spin move and does a great job of finding and running to green grass. He possesses the ability to run both inside and outside the tackle box. Webb also has shown the ability to be effective catching the ball out of the backfield based off his stats and what you see on tape of him being used as a receiver out of the backfield.
Webb would be a great complement to a backfield that will feature at least two running backs with home run speed in Khalan Laborn and Toafili. Missouri, West Virginia and Ole Miss were also recruiting Webb.
