In a surprise development, Timber Creek defensive linemen Greg Webb and Dajuan Drennon committed to attend North Carolina on football scholarships on Saturday.

Webb, regarded as one of the best defensive tackles in the country, had committed to Penn State in the spring.

Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson said Saturday that both players had committed to North Carolina.

Webb was an All-South Jersey defensive tackle last season, leading Timber Creek to a 12-0 record and the SJ Group 3 title.

Drennon was a standout defensive end for the Chargers and also played tight end.

Webb's de-commitment from Penn State is a blow to a program reeling from the Freeh report and facing possible NCAA sanctions.
