LB Prospect Plans to Camp at AU, Others

A football recruiting report on at 2009 prospect from suburban Atlanta is featured.

Suwanee, Ga.--Don Moon has been a starter since his ninth grade year and he hopes to continue that streak as he heads into spring practice at his third different high school, North Gwinnett.

A physical linebacker who made 78 tackles as a junior for Mt. Pisgah Christian Academy, including 21 for lost yardage with eight quarterback sacks, Moon says he will attend several college football camps this summer.

"I am planning to go to Auburn, Ole Miss and LSU," he says.

A player who stands just a shade under six feet tall and weighs 225 pounds, he started as a linebacker at Christian Life Academy in Baton Rouge, La., as a freshman and sophomore before moving to the Atlanta area.

As he prepares for spring training at North Gwinnett, he has been working in the weight room and he is already stronger than many college athletes. Moon has done 16 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press and has a max of 325. He squats 425 pounds and is working on his power cleans this spring.

A football player who is interested in studying business in college, Moon notes that in addition to the colleges he is visiting for summer camps he has an interest in Clemson and Illinois, but hasn't received any scholarship offers yet, something he hopes to change before he starts his senior season at his new school.
