May 21st is the day Buffs fans can not wait to get here already. It's the Texas Tech commencement for possible graduate transfer, and current CU "commit", QB Davis Webb. Once Webb graduates, he is free to enroll at any school, and even though Coach Mike Macintyre has remained confident that Webb will be coming to Boulder, the anxiety of Buff fans continues to grow after Webb visited California, who is looking to replace Jared Goff.
"I'm still committed to Colorado. I love them," Webb told 247Sports. "But I only get one shot at this thing. I'm not like most grad transfers who get two years. I have six months of college football, and I want to make sure it's the spot for me. That's why I took another visit."
The addition of Webb would be huge considering three-year starter Sefo Luifau might miss most, if not, all of next season with a serious foot injury. If the Buffaloes lose Webb, and Luifau, they would most likely turn to unproven redshirt freshman Steven Montez, but Coach Macintyre is confident that Webb will be in Boulder this fall.
"I have contact with him basically every day," he said while on with AM 950's Tom Helmer and Scott Hastings. "He's definitely told me he's still coming, that's the way I see it and I'm standing by his word."
Colorado is by far Webb's best chance to start right away, which will allow him to showcase his skills to NFL scouts as well as join a veteran CU Buffs team that added some dynamic playmakers this off-season. Not to mention Webb's past success with former Texas Tech coach and current CU co-offensive coordinator, Darrin Chiaverini, it's a no brainer that Webb should choose to play in Boulder.
Webb started for the Red Raiders as a true freshman, earning the MVP award at the 2013 Holiday Bowl against Arizona State, where he passed for 403 yards and four touchdowns. He battled a shoulder injury for most of the 2014 season and lost his starting spot in 2015.
Webb said he will be making up his mind "soon" as he is still committed to Colorado. The visits to California, and any other visits we assume he will take, will for sure make Colorado fans not be able to rest easy for the next month. Until then, here's some highlights of Steven Montez to bring your spirits up.
