UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State’s 2013 recruiting class lost one of its commitments on Saturday.
New Jersey defensive lineman Greg Webb withdrew his oral pledge to attend Penn State in favor of North Carolina.
UNC recruiting sites reported Friday that Webb had reopened his recruiting and planned to visit the Tar Heels’ Chapel Hill campus on Saturday.
Webb — a 6-foot-1, 295-pound defensive tackle at Timber Creek High School in Sicklerville, N.J. — indeed visited UNC and committed when his high school teammate Dajuan Drennon also committed to the Tar Heels.
A four-star recruit by Rivals.com standards, Webb was one of three defensive line recruits in the 2013 Penn State class.
His change of heart leaves the Nittany Lions with defensive ends Garrett Sickels and Curtis Cothran, four- and three-star recruits, respectively.
Webb had visited Penn State in March before committing to the Nittany Lions on April 5.
