Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports spoke with quarterback Davis Webb over the weekend to get some more detail on why he chose to switch his commitment for his final year of college football eligibility from Colorado to California.
If you read the article looking for an actual explanation you're going to be left wanting. This statement is about as close as it gets:
A big factor was Cal hiring new offensive coordinator Jake Spavital in February. Spavital is a protege of Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Webb said that was an added bonus. Their systems are similar. They run many of the same plays, although the verbiage is different.
The story doesn't mention that Coach Chiaverini is ALSO a Kingsbury protege and will likely ALSO be integrating a similar system and many of the same plays into the Colorado offense. It's pretty clear at this point that Webb thought that Cal would give him a better chance to win in the one season he has to play.
It remains to be seen if that will end up being true or not...
