Syracuse Football Recruiting: Could Syracuse Be Targeting Graduate Transfer QB Davis Webb?

Does a Twitter follow by Co-Offensive Coordinator Sean Lewis mean Syracuse will pursue Webb?

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Texas Tech Red Raiders quarterback Davis Webb is looking for somewhere to transfer where he can compete to play immediately after he graduates Tech in the Spring. Soon after announcing that he will transfer from Tech, Syracuse's co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Sean Lewis began following Webb on Twitter, a potential sign that Syracuse intends to recruit Webb.

Webb was a three-star recruit who played his high school ball at Prosper High School in Texas. At Tech, Webb ended up playing in ten games and starting five of those games his freshman year, amassing 2,718 yards passing while completing 63% of his passes and twenty touchdowns. He was also named Holiday Bowl MVP.  Sophomore year, he started all eight games he played in before injuries ended his season, totaling another 2,500 yards and 24 touchdowns through the air.

This past year, sophomore QB Patrick Mahomes won the starting job at Tech and Webb only played in five games, performing back up duties. Webb is on pace to graduate from Texas Tech after the Spring semester, enabling him to use his fourth year of eligibility immediately after transferring elsewhere.

In a release, Texas Tech Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury said "Webb is the hardest working individual [he'd] ever had the privilege of coaching. He's a fierce competitor and extremely talented quarterback. Wherever Davis lands, he will immediately change the outlook of that program."  Here's hoping Webb considers immediately changing the outlook of the Syracuse Orange Football program.
