Former University of Kansas quarterback Jordan Webb was named the starter for the Colorado Buffaloes on Thursday, an accomplishment surprisingly earned less than two months after the senior transferred from the Jayhawk's program.
For the past two season, Webb was the main signal-caller for Kansas where he threw for 3,079 yards and 20 touchdowns, but led Kansas to only four victories.
The a 6-foot-1, 205-pound graduate student beat out Connor Wood, a Texas transfer who was the Buffaloes' top choice entering summer camp. The Colorado coaches said they were impressed how fast Webb learned the offense.
“Each day, it was becoming more and more evident,” CU coach Jon Embree told the Denver Post, referring to Webb’s emergence as starter. “He just consistently made plays, made good decisions. He’s very accurate with his ball. I wasn’t into playing (mind) games. I was going to let the team know as soon as I made a decision. I felt good about it last night, slept on it and decided to let it go out today.”
