Detroit Cass Tech cornerback Damon Webb has seen a lot of campuses and attended several college games already in his young recruiting process, but no game thus far has matched the experience the 2014 prospect had at Notre Dame Saturday night.
"That was the hypest college game I have been to thus far," Webb said. "I think it was because it was a rivalry game and the fans got real hyped being a night game."
Although Webb has been traveling extensively to college campuses in the last six months, Saturday's trip was his first to South Bend.

"It did meet my expectations," Webb said. "The campus is real nice. The stadium and the crowd was just electric - that's what I took away.
"I can see myself playing at Notre Dame. At the game I was just watching how they played their cornerbacks. I see they play a lot of off-man and a lot of Zone coverage."
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Webb holds more than a half dozen scholarship offers already, but has yet to receive one from Notre Dame. The recruiting interest between the two parties has been going on for some time, however
"I talked to Coach [Chuck] Martin and he was saying he just wanted to show us what Notre Dame was all about," Webb said. "They just wanted to get me on campus just to look around. I didn't get a chance to talk to Coach [Brian] Kelly."
Notre Dame beat Michigan 13-6 Saturday night in a matchup of top 20 teams. The Wolverines have offered Webb a scholarship, and he was able to evaluate their play as well.
"It didn't affect my thoughts on Michigan," Webb said. "I was just thinking if I did go to Michigan I see that I can earn some early playing time because I see they need help at their cornerback position."
Webb plans to take this coming weekend off from college game visits, but one trip he knows he wants to take this fall is down to LSU. He and his father are still discussing potential visit dates for a Baton Rouge trip.
Webb and his Cass Tech teammates dropped their first game of the season this past Friday by a final of 13-6 to Orchard Lake St. Mary's. The loss ended a streak of nine straight wins dating back to the 2011 season.
"We took it as a reality check, so we are going to go back to practice and work hard," Webb remarked.
