Penn State remains in the thick of a heated recruiting battle for one of the top running backs in the Class of 2023, Treyaun Webb. Webb, from Jacksonville, Florida updated his recruiting status with his top five schools in the last full week of March. Low and behold, Penn State was listed as one of the top five schools under consideration for the talented running back.
Webb is also considering Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Baylor in his top five. Penn State is the only Big Ten team left in the running for his commitment, while the SEC options are appearing to be tough competitors in the recruiting process. Webb staying close to home in Florida could be the biggest obstacle to Penn State landing the Jacksonville recruit.
But Webb has long been on Penn State’s radar, so only time will tell if the time invested will ultimately pay off for James Franklin and his staff.
“Penn State has been recruiting me since I was in 8th grade,” Webb said to On3 Sports. “Coach Franklin is an amazing man and the atmosphere is great. I could see myself being comfortable there.”
Penn State’s future at the running back position looks fantastic with the Class of 2022 additions of Nick Singleton and Kaytron Allen, but the addition of another four-star talent at the position would certainly be welcomed in State College as Penn State looks to drastically improve the running back production after a disappointing 2021 season.
