Overtime: Mark Webb commits to Georgia

Archbishop Wood’s four-star wide receiver Mark Webb committed to the University of Georgia on Friday. Webb joins his cousin, D’Andre Swift, who committed earlier this month.

“I mean we started together, so it’s like we’re finishing together,” Webb said in an interview with 247Sports.

Webb initially planned to make his decision on ESPNU right before Archbishop Wood’s televised 7:30 p.m. game against Saint Joseph Prep, but the word got out a little over an hour early.

Four days ago, Webb posted a tweet with six possible remaining schools, which included Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, Temple, Penn State and Maryland.

Webb said he ultimately chose Georgia because of the coaches, it felt like home and what the Bulldogs are going to do in the future.

“It’s going to be unbelievable,” Webb said.

Webb is listed by 247Sports composite rankings as the 19th best wide receiver in the country and the fifth best overall prospect from Pennsylvania.
