It was a busy afternoon for East Texas recruits, as four area players in the 2017 class decided to commit to Division I programs.

Longview safety Traveion Webster made his college choice by committing to Louisiana-Monroe, he announced on Twitter.

Webster (6-0, 197) chose ULM over a handful of offers from Division I FCS programs.

The Lobos' defender joined Wills Point's Sloan Rodberg (Stephen F. Austin), Athens' Noah Bush (Air Force), and Henderson's Trestan Ebner (Baylor) as East Texas commitments on Sunday.

Webster became the second area prospect to pledge to the Warhawks. Gladewater defensive back Austin Hawley previously committed to ULM.

The Warhawks are members of the Sun Belt Conference, and are coached by Matt Viator, who guided ULM to a 4-8 season in 2016.

Webster was an integral part of the Longview defense last season. He finished with 81 tackles, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions in leading the Lobos to an 8-3 record.

Like all college football prospects currently in their senior year of high school, Webster will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him on Feb. 1.
