Offers are picking up for Havelock, N.C. athlete Danny Webster. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder has already pulled in three scholarships to date and plenty of other colleges are interested.
"He's got offers from North Carolina, South Carolina and East Carolina," Havelock head coach Jim Bryant said. "He's getting interest from Alabama, UCLA, LSU, NC State, Duke and Wake Forest."
What's Webster thinking at this time?
"He's excited about all of them," he said. "All three schools offered before the end of his junior season."
Despite interest already coming, Webster may be nearing a decision.
"I think he knows where he wants to go and I believe he'll probably commit in the next couple months."
With that, Bryant broke down Webster's game.
"He's being recruited as an athlete, as a defensive back or safety," he said. "He's the best overall football player I've ever coached. He can do it all and he never misses practice. He dislocated his shoulder and broke his collarbone and played through it. He kept it secret from us. He's tough and a heck of a player. We actually had to take pads off of him during practice because he was hitting people.
"He's also a hardworker and a competitor. He's a good well-rounded student too with a 4.1 GPA."
Webster is a versatile athlete as well playing point guard on the basketball team and batting over .500 in baseball.
"He is getting recruited for baseball, but his first love is football."
Bryant claims to have one other prospect to watch in 2011 in 6-foot-2, 195-pound linebacker Tyler Merkel.
"He's very coachable and does everything you ask," he said. "He squeezes down well and has a real good feel for the game. He's a real strong kid for his size and loves to play. I think he's a lower Division I player."
