#STRecruiting: Success at #Clemson may be key to landing 5-star running back

Treyaun Webb

Former Georgia commitment RB Treyaun Webb (6-0 188) of Trinity Christian in Jacksonville has a 2023 offer list as long as his accolades, and each of the schools he is considering has one thing in common … winning. Clemson obviously fits that mold. Webb, who decommitted from the Bulldogs this past January, is still looking for a Clemson offer, but is planning to make a trip to Dabo Swinney’s high school camp on June 5th.

“I am glad I can finally get back out to the campuses and seeing those campuses and talking to the coaches,” Webb said about the opportunity for on-campus visits in June. “Before everything stopped, I went to FSU and Georgia, but I didn’t really get out like I wanted to. I want to see the difference between all of the schools so I can get my timeline down on when I want to make my decision.”

Webb, considered a 5-star athlete/running back by 247Sports and a 4-star by Rivals, rushed for 837 yards and 12 touchdowns to lead the Conquerors to a state championship last fall. His list of suitors includes Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M and Southern  Cal, among others.

He named a top six in January of Georgia, Oklahoma, Penn State, LSU, Florida and Ohio State. But Clemson remains in the mix, and the upcoming visit is certain to impact his thinking. Clemson running backs coach CJ Spiller is working to detail all of the opportunities that are available should Webb select the Tigers.

“I want to see the campus and talk to the coaches. That’s really what I am looking forward to,” Webb said. “I want to see how the environment is up there. I talk to coach Spiller and he tells me has been through the process before when he was the top running back in the country. He has been through all of this before and he says he can relate to me.”

Webb realizes that playing for a prestigious program like Trinity Christian is helpful in the recruiting process.

“The coaches have been through all of this before,” he said. “They have played in the NFL and they have NFL experience, and they teach us every day how to be humble and how to carry ourselves on and off the field. And then, there is a lot of talent and a lot of competition.”

When asked to evaluate his skills, Webb isn’t shy about discussing his abilities.

“I just make plays. I am a playmaker. I think my vision is my strength. I know how to set my blocks up, and then I also have speed. But I also have a lot to work on.”

The Sunshine State native is visiting Florida on June 1st, Clemson on June 5th, and Ohio State on June 8th and 9th. He plans to check out Georgia on June 15th with a visit that following weekend to Oklahoma. He says he is looking for a school that checks off all of his boxes and Spiller tells him that Clemson is that kind of place.

“Academics. I want to see how my academics correlate to the school,” Webb said. “Obviously, I want to see how the school can help me financially after football because I know that football won’t last that long. Coach Spiller says that at Clemson they take care of their alumni and they have the best fans.”

Webb has never visited the Clemson campus, but he said one word comes to mind when Tiger football is mentioned.

“Winning. They are known as a winning program and if you go there, you are going to win.”
