Webb Looking Forward to UM Camp

Pontiac Northern ATH Martell Webb has been splitting time between football and basketball this summer, but his primary focus in the upcoming weeks will be the gridiron. The Michigan commit will be attending the Wolverines annual summer camp next weekend. While there he plans to impress with his receiving skills and meet face to face with future teammate, Ryan Mallett.

Martell Webb may be on his way to Ann Arbor on a football scholarship, but that has done nothing to quell his love for the game of basketball. The dual-sport standout will be taking advantage of every remaining opportunity to get in a little roundball action…both in the winter at Pontiac Northern, and this summer on the AAU circuit.

"I've just been working out and playing AAU," said Webb regarding what he has been up to recently. "It's been going well. I've been playing with the (Tri City) Cobras and The Family. I'm going to the Peach Jam with The Family."

Webb will be playing in a few other AAU events as well, but he won't be spending all of his time this summer on the hardwood. He'll also be working on his pass-catching skills in preparation for his senior campaign on the gridiron and his future as a Michigan Wolverine. With his college choice now out of the way, the only question left unanswered is at what position will he line up at….wide receiver or tight end?

"Coach English and Coach Carr came by my school," said Webb. "They said they'll see what position I should be at when I get there. They said if I get bigger they'll put me at tight end."

Webb will get an opportunity to state his case for wide receiver on the practice fields next to Schembechler Hall this upcoming weekend. He'll also get a chance to spend some face-time with a future teammate that has quickly become a friend.

"I'm coming up to the camp… probably on Sunday," he said. "Ryan Mallett is supposed to be up there too. I've been talking to him. We just kick it. He's real cool. We communicate like twice per week. We talk about some of everything, but mainly about going to school next year. It'll be cool to see him."
