Jeremy Webb arrived at Virginia Tech in the class of 2018 as a JUCO transfer from ASA College in New York. A four-star cornerback from East Mims, Fla., Webb was an All-Conference selection in 2017.
At 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, Webb fit the mold in the type of corner former defensive coordinator Bud Foster coveted.
Unfortunately for Webb, he tore his Achilles in spring practice in 2018 and missed his first year. He took a redshirt that season.
Tech was hoping to get a healthy Webb back in 2019 and his rehab was encouraging throughout the offseason. Sadly, Webb would suffer another Achilles’ injury that would put his 2019 season in jeopardy.
Webb ended up playing for the Hokies in 2019, but in only three games. He clearly wasn’t all the way back from the injuries and the emergence of Caleb Farley and Jermaine Waller meant the Hokies didn’t need to rush Webb back on the field.
On Thursday, Webb announced he was transferring.
This was an unfortunate situation for both Webb and Virginia Tech. He clearly has talent, but freak injuries ruined his time in Blacksburg.
Here’s hoping Webb finds a good home in 2020 and ends his college career on a positive note.
