UConn football’s defensive focus to start the class of 2018 continues as linebacker Hunter Webb committed to the Huskies Thursday night.

Webb, a Wiliamsport, Pennsylvania native, is a 6-foot-2, 210 pound-linebacker. Over his last two seasons, Webb totaled 144 tackles in 11 games, including 22 tackles-for-loss.

Webb is a three sport athlete, playing basketball and baseball to go along with football. Webb is so talented at baseball that he didn’t even play football his freshman season, thinking he would play baseball in college.

However, Webb would soon discover his path in football and received moderate interest in the northeast, holding FBS offers from Army and UMass along with Albany, New Hampshire and Sacred Heart at the FCS level.

Although he is not rated by any recruiting sites, Webb is an intriguing prospect due to production and multi-sport prowess in high school.

Webb is now the fifth player in the class of 2018 and the third linebacker, joining Kevon Jones and Dillon Harris.
