Treyaun Webb, a class of 2023 four-star running back from Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Florida, has included Penn State in his top five schools out of the 46 that have offered him. Webb revealed via Twitter early Friday afternoon that Penn State is among the five, joining Florida, Baylor, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Webb had been committed to play for Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma, but de-committed Nov. 28, the day Riley left to take the head coaching job at USC. He finished his junior season with 1,200 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns in just 10 games, helping Trinity Christian to a second consecutive state championship.
Right now, it doesn’t look like there’s an obvious destination for Webb. Georgia had previously been the “crystal ball” pick for three of 247Sports’ recruiting experts, but the Bulldogs didn’t make the top five. Also dropped from consideration were offers rom Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pitt, Texas, Texas A&M, UCF, USC, Utah, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Steve Wiltfong, 247’s director of recruiting, and Parker Thune of OUinsider each currently have Webb going to Florida, with Thune’s projection coming at 11:08 Friday morning. South Carolina insider JC Shurburtt predicted Webb to the Gamecocks back in February.
Webb has been getting college offers since May of 2018 when he was in the seventh grade. Penn State offered Webb in May of 2020. He is scheduled to visit Penn State June 11, a week after visiting Baylor June 4. Webb is also set to visit Tennessee (June 18) and South Carolina (June 24).
Penn State has eight players committed already in the Class of 2023, but no running backs. Keyvone Lee, who led Penn State in rushing in 2021 with 530 yards, in set to enter his junior season with the Nittany Lions this fall. No. 2 rusher Noah Cain transferred to LSU. Freshmen Nick Singleton and Katron Allen are in the mix ahead of the 2022 season.
