Model, ‘Bama QB still dating but not engaged

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Model and reality TV actress Katherine Webb said Friday she and the University of Alabama’s quarterback remain an item, but they’re not engaged.

Webb told The Associated Press that she’s still dating AJ McCarron, but that’s as far as it goes for now.

“We’re doing great,” she said.

As for a possible engagement, Webb said: “No, I promise you, you guys will know when that time comes.”

Webb has been photographed wearing a big rock on her ring finger, sparking speculation the two were getting married. Webb was also wearing a ring during an appearance at the Regions Tradition golf tournament in Birmingham.

Webb, 24, gained fame during the BCS title game in January as she watched McCarron lead Alabama over Notre Dame. Cameras focused on her, and announcer Brent Musburger commented on her appearance.

“My life literally changed in a matter of 24 hours,” she said.

Webb has subsequently made appearances on TV including the ABC reality show “Splash,” in which she participated in a diving competition.

“Right now I’m really just focusing on doing more charity work,” she said. “I have more of a platform to be able to do that.”

Webb, a graduate of Auburn University, said she is particularly interested in working with young girls, “which is really dear to me.”

Webb attended the tournament to pose for photos with fans to raise donations for Children’s of Alabama, a Birmingham-based hospital.
