The term "silent commit" is ugly. I mean, what does it mean? So a player told a school that is…
Moss Has Decided
Tempe (Ariz.) Corona del Sol defensive end Avery Moss' recruitment has gone through some change, yet the senior has two new favorites and is just about ready to announce his college choice. "It's been crazy, especially since so many football coaches have been getting fired and whatnot," Moss tells Scout.com. "Arizona and Arizona State were my top priorities when they had Stoops and Erickson, but now they're building their staff up again and basically starting their recruitment all over." The three-star athlete who was previously favoring the in-state schools has eliminated both programs, and is now down to two schools. "Purdue and Nebraska are the two leaders," he reveals. "Academics are definitely my biggest concern about where I want to go and Purdue is known internationally for their academics and Nebraska leads the NCAA in Academic All-Americans." "They're both really good academically and I think I can be a 4-year starter at both schools. At Nebraska I'd probably have to red-shirt and at Purdue I can come off as a true freshman." At Nebraska, one of Moss' recruiters is cousin and current Husker, Todd Peat, Jr. "I would say he is [a factor in my decision]," Moss explains. "He's had the biggest impact on my football career. The only reason I even played football was basically because he forced me to. I was a basketball player and that was my main concern, but he kind of forced me into playing football and got me started on this thing. He prepared me for my recruiting process and stuff like that, so he definitely has a big effect on me." Also in the family is five-star offensive tackle from Corona del Sol, Andrus Peat. Have Peat and Moss talked about potentially playing together at the next level? "Yeah," Moss answers. "We're really good friends so for us to play together on the football field with me, him and his brother all from the same high school would be tight." Moss is high on Nebraska, but the Huskers aren't the only ones standing out. "I took a visit to Purdue and I really liked it out there," Moss shares. The defensive end reveals that both schools are catching his eye, but one has won him over. What made the difference? "The position coach for that school," Moss states. "He really came on strong; he did his research, he recruited me pretty hard and got to know me better than anyone else did. He made his best effort to get me down there, so I'll say he was the main concern pretty much." Moss has made his decision and will announce his commitment to one of the two schools at the Semper Fi All-American Bowl on January 3rd.
