He is no prima donna. He plays trap set drums
in the church band and is a "Yes-Sir, No-Sir" kind of guy. "I
just like being around my teammates and family. That's what I know." The
kids on his team crowd around his elbows as the big bear moves slowly down the
hall at the end of a school day.
But he is a five star prospect and his name is Morgan Moses, the 6-foot7, 347 pound offensive tackle from Meadowbrook High
School. Moses is considered the nation's number one offensive tackle and
Rivals.com rates the massive lineman the #22 prospect in the country!
With 20+ offers from major D-I colleges, Moses
can pick just about any college that he wants. So far Moses has played his
recruiting close to the vest and seems to be in no hurry to make a decision,
unlike many of the other Virginia prospects that have already made D-I commitments.
Moses is the state's only five star prospect,
but Virginia's Class of 2009 is loaded with many top football prospects, with
eleven four star prospects and over 20 four prospects. In fact the state's
talent level is so deep this year could set a record for D-I signees. As
of June 18th, twenty
six Virginia prospects had made D-I verbals, thirteen of which have
decided to stay in-state with either Virginia or Virginia Tech. Of the
twelve prospects headed out of state, West Virginia has garnered four
commitments, Wake Forest three, and North Carolina, Louisville, Tennessee, Penn State, NC
State, and Michigan each have one commitment from the Commonwealth.
Expect more commitments in the coming weeks and
months as another 40
in-state prospects are currently claiming offers. That list will
continue to grow as we head into the summer camp season and colleges are allowed
to do more in-person evaluations of prospective recruits. There is still plenty
of 'quality' prospects yet to decide on a college, with fourteen of VirginiaPreps.com's
Top 30 prospects yet to make a college decision.
