Markale Moses commits to Army

The Army commitments are really coming in this month for Coach Jeff Monken and staff. The latest is from Markale Moses, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound cornerback out of Broken Arrow, Okla. Moses spoke with ArmySports.com on why he selected the U.S. Military Academy.

"I was juts offered a week or two ago from Amy," Markale Moses said. "I called Coach Corless and left him a voice mail message. He called me back and put me in touch with the head coach. Basically I said, 'I have some good news to tell you. I would like to commit'. He was very excited and told me he couldn't wait for me to get up there.

"Army's offer was off of my highlight film. When Coach Corless was at my high school he said that Army likes my ability as a cover corner. The cornerbacks coach said from looking at my film that he likes that I'm confident to go head-to-head with the bigger receivers and he likes my ball skills.

"My decision was based on the opportunities I'll have after attending college at West Point. Having an assured career is a big thing I know I can count on coming out of the academy. For a football standpoint, I know the head coach is kind of new. I saw what he did against Florida and how that turned out. He knows what he's doing. From everything the cornerbacks coach has been telling me, I like the way he coaches his players. I think it''s a good fit. My mom said that if I didn't make it into college then I should go into the Army and I told her I never would, but things change."

Moses chose Army over offers from South Dakota, Northern Arizona, and Missouri State.

"It's a little relaxing having my decision out of the way," Moses stated. "However, I know that I have to play this year like I don't have any scholarship offers. I'm going to use the season to improve because I know West Point isn't going to be easy."

Ar Broken Arrow, Moses has been a varsity starter since his freshman year. He was named All-State and All-District as a junior.
