Webb is a class of 2014 cornerback prospect who is rated a 4-star by Scout.com, but could also be used to play wide receiver as well.

The six-footer from Detroit also held a Michigan offer, and this has to come as stunning news to Brady Hoke and his staff. This recruitment definitely goes against the norm, with Cass Tech High School usually being a pipeline for the Wolverines.

The Buckeyes had a huge recruiting weekend, also gaining a commitment from Christopher Worley of Glenville High School. Damon Webb joins Marcelys Jones to become the first two class of 2014 prospects to give their commitments to Urban Meyer, who is working toward bringing in a monster class next year.   

Still, there is an insane amount of time left for Webb to be recruited by other schools. Over a year remains until he would be able to sign with Ohio State, so nothing is a lock, especially when dealing with high school kids. However, from what it looks like right now, Webb is a Buckeye and a great haul-in by Ohio State.

With Ohio State basketball defeating Michigan and Ohio State football "stealing" Damon Webb from the Wolverines, this weekend has definitely been a win for everyone in Buckeye Nation.
