Penn State Recruiting: Greg Webb Decommits From Nittany Lions

Greg Webb, a 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive tackle recruit from the state of New Jersey, rescinded his commitment to begin playing college football in Happy Valley in 2013 and instead chose a point further south, Chapel Hill, at the University of North Carolina according to StateCollege.com.

Webb was sought after around the country from some of the biggest college football programs according to the report:

Webb had more than 30 scholarship offers from schools such as Alabama, Ohio State, Rutgers, Temple and Iowa, among several others, and was the seventh commit of Penn State's 2013 class.

With the release of the Freeh Report, Penn State's independent investigation into the culture and subsequent cover-up of Jerry Sandusky's involvement with minors by Joe Paterno and the university's administrators, only time will tell how this scandal will affect football recruiting, although the Webb decommitment may be unrelated:

Unlike many of the class figure heads such as Camp Hill tight end Adam Breneman, Webb was never particularly vocal following his commitment, and the combination of his family's plans to move farther south and Penn State's lack of interest in high school teammate Dajaun Drennon, likely played a larger role in his decommitment than Penn State's scandal.
