Clairton's Webb commits to Kent State
Clairton receiver Terrish Webb became the second Bears senior to commit and will play collegiately at Kent State.
Webb selected Kent State over Toledo, Arkansas State and Temple. He also was getting interest from Pitt and Connecticut.
“When I first went up there, it felt like it was someplace I could be for the next four years,” Webb said. “It felt like another home, and I was comfortable up there.”
Webb joins fellow senior receiver Titus Howard as Division I recruits from Clairton who have made collegiate commitments. Howard will play next season at Pitt with his cousin, redshirt sophomore receiver Kevin Weatherspoon.
Clairton senior running back Tyler Boyd is being heavily recruited and has received more than 25 offers but has yet to commit. Webb, after weighing his options, is relieved to have made the choice this early in the season.
“I think it will help me focus more on my senior season than worrying about what college I'm going to be going to,” Webb said. “It's going to help me focus more on winning another state championship.”
Last season Webb (6-foot, 170 pounds) caught 27 passes for 776 yards and nine touchdowns, as he helped Clairton win its fourth consecutive WPIAL Class A championship and its third state title in as many years. The Bears have won a nation's best and WPIAL-record 49 consecutive games and will be looking for No. 50 — and their 600th win in school history — Friday at home against California.
