Lineman is Heavy Lean Following ASU Visit

Defensive lineman Bo Moos goes to school in the backyard of one Pac-10 program. Yet it's another conference team that he has high on his list these days. Devils Digest caught with him following a very enjoyable trip to Tempe.

The 6-1 290 Bo Moos was the first offer Dennis Erickson extended while he was coaching at Idaho. Thus, it's probably no surprise that when Erickson took the job at Arizona State, that he extended that offer once again and invited the lineman for a visit in Sun Devil country. "It went real good," said Moos about his trip. "I was real impressed, especially with the coaches. I had a lot of fun touring the campus, the facilities…just hanging out with the players…my host player was Jonathan Johnson."

Moos, who attends Sheldon High School in Eugene, hasn't seen that much recruiting attention from his hometown Oregon Ducks. Nonetheless, he will give that program a shot during an official visit, which will attempt to change his current thinking about the recruiting process. "I didn't commit on the ASU visit, but I'm about 90-95% leaning towards committing there," he admitted. "I have an Oregon visit coming up this weekend and I'll make a decision after that. I'm pretty much sold on ASU, but I want to see what Oregon has to offer."

Moos visited Idaho on 12/8, and may still visit Louisville and Purdue, who haven't offered him a scholarship but are likely to do so if and when he does visit there. Then again, he does plan to make his decision after the Oregon trip.

The Sheldon standout was voted Defensive Player of the Year in the Southwest Conference, and was second team All-State in the 6A division. "I'm a smaller Pac-10 defensive lineman, but I have more athleticism than most players at that position," he said of his skills. "I'm about 290 pounds right now, and I'm trying to turn all that into good weight right now, get a little faster…improve my strength."

Moos attends the same school as Aaron Pflugrad, who also happened to visit the Sun Devils this past weekend. The defensive lineman stated that he was academically qualified.
