After a season where he ran for 1,335 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns while adding another 125 yards on seven receptions, it's no surprise that sophomore running back Daniel Webb is getting interest from FBS schools.
The University of Illinois got there first, though, as NJ.com has reported that the Fighting Illini became the first FBS school to offer a scholarship to the explosive Webb. According to NJ.com's Todderick Hunt, Webb has chiefly been recruited by tight ends/special teams coach Bob Ligashesky.
Webb's elusiveness in space, speed and ability to change direction on a dime make him an ideal candidate to return kicks at the collegiate level (he had a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown last season) and his explosiveness could give a team a dangerous weapon coming out of the backfield as a third-down back.
Webb has literal track speed as well, showcased as he runs the 4 X 100-meter relay, the 100-meter dash and 200 for Montclair High Schools Track and Field team.
The Mounties congratulate Daniel on the first of what we expect to be many great achievements going forward.
