The Ole Miss Rebels landed a stellar recruiting class in 2013, and they received another boost to their talented 2014 class as Kendarius Webster verbally committed to the Rebels on Tuesday afternoon.
Webster, a three-star recruit according to the 247Sports composite player rankings, is a talented corner back out of the state of Georgia and is rated by 247Sports as the 26th best corner back in the nation for 2014 as well as the No. 28 overall player from the peach state.
Webster has gone back and forth on his top schools throughout the summer and fall as many thought he was on the verge of committing to the Georgia Bulldogs after camping there this summer. Yet, most recently he named his top two schools between Florida State and Ole Miss, and ultimately chose the Rebels after officially visiting on Oct. 12.
Webster visited Florida State this past weekend for the game against Miami, and according to Webster, that ironically solidified his realization that Ole Miss is where he wanted to play his college ball.
The 5-11, 177 pound defensive back is a big get for the Rebels because he has all of the athletic tools to be a top-notch corner in the SEC. Webster’s 4.5 forty-yard dash speed allows him to be able to recover well on receivers as well as change direction to break on passes. Webster also has good length and tackling ability as well.
The Rebels now 21 commitments for the class of 2014, which ranks them 16th in country, but just 9th in the SEC, according to 247Sports, which goes to prove how good the rest of the teams in the SEC are at recruiting compared to the entire nation.
The 2014 class for the Rebels includes four players that are of four-star status, and Webster is the only corner back to currently be committed to the Rebels in this year’s class.
