Richmond (Va.) Benedictine School running back Lamar Webster has recently changed schools. Because of that, the 6-foot-0, 205-pounder has reclassified as well.
"I just transferred about a week or so ago from Thomas Dale to Benedictine," he said. "My parents didn't think it was working out at Thomas Dale, so I moved.
"When I went to Benedictine, they found out how old I was and since I was young enough, I could reclassify. My dad thought it would be better to and so now I'm a 2015 prospect."
Webster is coming off a big year for Thomas Dale where he posted 60 tackles and earned honorable mention all-metro honors.
Despite his youth, Webster is getting college attention.
"I was getting some letters from North Carolina, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Maryland," he said. "Maryland invited me to camp. All of the schools are basically just introducing themselves. I'm supposed to be setting up visits during the summer time."
Webster is getting looks from both in-state programs and discussed the schools more.
"I actually met Mike London in eighth grade," he said. "Virginia is my dad's favorite school and I've always liked how much praise they get from where I'm from.
"As for Virginia Tech, some football players I used to play with go there. I've always liked the school, but I think I like Virginia better. I think their academics are better."
Does Webster like any schools in general?
"My favorite school is LSU," he said. "I guess everybody likes the big name schools and I want to go to a Division I college.
"To be honest about LSU, I like their colors. I've watched them play and I like their style."
Visits are going to pick up more for Webster, so he went into detail what he is looking for in a college.
"I guess what I want in a school is a good academic program cause football isn't always guaranteed," he said. "You need a backup plan if the opportunity for the NFL doesn't pan out. After four years, I want to get my education."
