“I have 13 offers and basically they just started racking up after my sophomore season,” said Steven Moss. “Boston College, Clemson, East Carolina, Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State, Old Dominion, South Carolina, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia have all offered."
“I would say Virginia Tech and UVA are recruiting me the hardest. They are trying to keep me in-state.”
Other schools, who have not offered, have been in touch with Moss.
“Alabama and Nebraska both came to my school,” he said. “We have been in touch. They like the highlight reels, but now they want solid game tapes – so I have got to get those to them. Ohio State and Penn State also came by my school.”
Moss did not expect all the attention.
“My coach told me it was going to happen, but I didn’t really think it would happen,” he said. “It feels great (to get so much attention). I’m ready to go out there this season and just punish people.”
The 6-foot-5, 275-pound lineman has been busy this summer.
“I have been to Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, N.C. State, East Carolina, West Virginia, and I am most likely going to Clemson this weekend,” Moss said. “I am looking forward to going to Clemson. I may also try to make it to South Carolina.”
The Chancellor standout does not plan to slow down this fall.
“I would imagine that I am going to try to make it to every school that has offered me” Moss said.
No school or group of schools leads for Moss at this time.
“I am basically just keeping an open mind – just taking it all in – and getting pros and cons from each one,” he said.
Moss is also focused on his junior season.
“Basically, I don’t want to allow a sack this season,” he said. “I just want to keep putting my guy into the ground and show him that he is not going to go near my quarterback. I would like to win states -- at least the division and the region. But if that doesn’t happen, I just hope to have a winning season like we did last year."
The talented offensive lineman said the main things he will be focused on when he chooses a school are coaching staff, team, and is it be place he would want to live for four years. Location will not be a factor for Moss. He said he would like to start narrowing his list of schools down next spring.
