Q&A with Damon Webb

OSU FootballIn what seems like forever ago now, the Ohio State coaching staff received a commitment from one of the best corners in the country. Damon Webb is currently a 4 star recruit, looking to get his 5th star and is ranked the 6th best corner in the country by both Rivals and Scout.

damon_webbWebb comes from Cass Tech High School (Detroit, MI) which is usually a huge pipeline for TTUN, similar to Glenville for Ohio State. So when Webb committed to the Buckeyes, it came as a surprise to some. Webb led Cass Tech to a second straight state title this past fall and is aiming for a three-peat. Damon racked up 40+ tackles and seven interceptions during his junior season.

Webb will be competing in “The Opening” this July and will end his high school career by playing in the US Army All-American Bowl.

I had a chance to chat with him as a well:

ME: Being from TSUN are you taking a lot of heat from their fan base?
Damon Webb: “Yes! I ignore any of the negative stuff.”

ME: Who is your favorite Buckeye of all-time?
DW: “Malcolm Jenkins is my favorite Buckeye.”

ME: What is the strangest thing that has occurred to you on a visit?
DW: “I have not had anything strange happen; all of my visits were nice”

ME: This is from all of Buckeye Nation…is Coach Coombs ever relaxed or calm?
DW: “Coach Coombs is a ball of energy but when I talk with him one on one, he is really calm and serious. He has a great sense of humor.”

ME: What is your favorite food?
DW: “I like BBQ Chicken pizza the most.”

ME: Who is your hero and why?
DW: “My dad is my hero. He is the most genuine person I know. I will always rely on him for advice.”

ME: What do you plan on majoring at Ohio State?
DW: “OSU has a curriculum in Sport Industry with a concentration in business. I would like to be a sports agent after I am finished with football.”

ME: What are your grades like?
DW: “My grades are good but they can be better. I have a 2.9 GPA.”

ME: What is the most memorable moment you have had on the football field?
DW: “It would have to be the first game we played against Brother Rice last season. This was my first game after transferring to Cass and I had a great game. Most fans might remember I had on an OSU skull cap. (haha).”

ME: Why did you choose The Ohio State University?
DW: Ohio State is the best university for me. I love Coach Coombs and the relationship we are building. Coach Meyer is just awesome. I love the school and the football program.”

ME: What do you want all of Buckeye Nation to know about you?
DW: “I am a God fearing person! I am grateful! I am humble! I am ready to work hard!”

I would like to thank Damon and his family for fitting me into their busy schedule. If you are not following Damon Webb on twitter you can do so (@DameWebb). Hope everyone enjoyed the article and Go Buckeyes!
