Junior College Running Back La’damian Webb Offered by Oklahoma State

OSU is still hunting for a RB pledge in 2020.



Oklahoma State’s hunt for a running back commitment in the 2020 recruiting class continued Wednesday with a new offer to a junior college prospect from Alabama.

La’damian Webb, a 5-foot-8, 190-pound recruit originally from Opelika, Alabama, announced the offer via his Twitter account. Webb attends Jones County Junior College in Mississippi, the same state where he’s long been expected to play in. Coming out of high school he signed with Mississippi State but failed to qualify academically — twice — before a short stint at Hutchinson Community College paved the way for his time now at Jones.

Webb is a 2020 prospect with experience and talent who should figure to be a major priority in the cycle for OSU. Despite long pursuits to try and land four-star Daniyel Ngata, five-star Zachary Evans and three-star Isaiah Jacobs, OSU doesn’t appear to be on the cusp of landing a pledge in the cycle yet. Of the nearly dozen targets, all are either committed elsewhere or looking intently elsewhere.

Despite not clearing academic hurdles and an unranked status, Webb is highly regarded. A former Mr. Football Alabama, he has standing offers from Ole Miss, Arkansas State and Troy. Coming out of high school he had roughly 20 offers which included Indiana, Utah, Mississippi State and more.

OSU has built its running back stable for 2020 via the junior college route, in part. Chuba Hubbard signed with OSU out of high school but projected backup Dezmon Jackson signed with OSU out of Hutchinson Community College last season. In 2015, OSU signed Chris Carson out of Butler Community College, and in 2014, OSU signed Tyreek Hill.
