Make no mistake, Jordan Webb is transferring to the Colorado Buffaloes to play football. The quarterback received significant playing time for the Kansas Jayhawks in 2010 and 2011, finishing his final season in Lawrence with 1,884 yards, 13 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a completion percentage of 63.7. Now he's set to meet with Colorado coaches and academic advisers with an eye on being admitted to graduate school in Boulder at some point in July.
Said Webb of his decision to attend Colorado:
"That's the whole reason I wanted to transfer," Webb told the Journal-World in regards to trying to earn the starting job in Boulder. "I wanted to go somewhere where I felt like I had that opportunity."
Webb has to be considered the favorite going into the season based on experience alone. He will be one of six quarterbacks in camp for the Buffaloes, but only Nick Hirschman has played a college game.
