Former Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb is visiting Cal this weekend
Former Texas Tech QB Davis Webb, a graduate transfer, is visiting Cal this weekend, he confirmed to FOX Sports.
The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Webb, who has thrown 46 TD passes against 22 interceptions for his career, committed to Colorado in January, but isn’t bound to it. He won’t arrive at his new school until this summer. If he opts to play at Cal, he would team up with new Bears offensive coordinator Jake Spavital, a protege of Webb’s old coach, Kliff Kingsbury.
Kingsbury has said the 21-year-old Webb, who ended up playing behind Pat Mahomes in 2015, has the tools to be a top-five overall NFL Draft pick because of his size, arm strength and mind.
"He has a chance to be very special," Kingsbury said after Webb finished up his freshman season in 2013. "He has one of the quickest releases and strongest arms I’ve been around. Very smart, intellectual thinker. Processes things very quickly. Sees the field. Great at checking to the right place."
Webb earned Holiday Bowl Offensive MVP honors (2013) at the end of a chaotic freshman season after carving up No. 14 Arizona State for 403 passing yards and four TDs in a 37-23 romp.
The Bears have a wide-open QB battle to replace Jared Goff, who left Berkeley and is expected to become a top-10 pick in the NFL Draft.
