Moss ready for Virginia Tech

Jamieon Moss had a huge junior season. Although other schools continued to pursue the Elizabeth City (N.C.) Northeastern star, he is firmly committed to Virginia Tech.

Jamieon Moss committed to Virginia Tech back in June. But schools such as East Carolina, Michigan, North Carolina State, and Wake Forest continued to pursue him. Despite their efforts, Moss remained committed to the Hokies.

"I'm committed to Virginia Tech," said Moss. "I took my official visit three or four weeks ago. It was a really good visit."

Moss enjoyed his time in Blacksburg.

"We went to the practice fields to watch the team practice," said the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Moss. "Coach (Bud) Foster also sat down with me and went over the plays. My favorite part of my visit was talking with him."

Moss felt at home while on the Hokies' campus.

"It's just a family-oriented school and that's what I like about it," he said. "Everybody looks out for each other."

"I felt like I already knew all the players – we talked a lot," he said. "We hung out in their dorm rooms and laughed and just had fun. I felt like the team already accepted me. They're just real nice guys."

Moss will play the "backer" position for the Hokies' defense, which is an inside linebacker.

"Coach Foster said he wants to play me early, but that it's pretty much up to me," Moss said. "That's why I'm working so hard. If I get redshirted I would understand, but I really want to play my freshman year."

The three-star linebacker is excited about playing for legendary Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer.

"It's almost as if it's a dream, just coming from a small town and being able to play for one of the greatest coaches in college football – it's a huge honor."

What will he bring to the Hokies' defense?

"I'm going to bring a non-stop attitude," he said. "I'm going run to the ball every play and just keep the motor running."

Moss finished his senior season with 173 tackles.
