QB Chris Moody Profile
Henry County (McDonough, Ga.) junior quarterback Chris Moody won't make his decision until the conclusion of his senior season.
"I just wait and see what all comes in, to wait and see what all scholarships I get, so I can sit down with my family and talk it over," he recently told CUTigers.com.
Several factors will be considered as Moody looks for the right fit.
"Academics, just how it feels, if my parents think it's a great fit, if they like it," he said.
The Tigers offered the rising senior last week.
"I was really excited. My coaches were excited for me, too. They told me what an honor it was," he said. "I really like Clemson and I was waiting on that offer. It was great."
Though Moody already knew Clemson had offered, it was defensive ends coach Marion Hobby who told him that the Tigers would send one his way.
"My coach told me that morning when I got to school. That night, when I got home, I called coach to confirm it," Moody said.
His first and only visit to Clemson was earlier this spring, to watch the Tigers scrimmage.
"The offense was great. [Roderick McDowell] was pretty good. I met the coaches. That was the first time I met coach [Chad] Morris and to actually see them play," Moody said.
What stood out the most?
"The atmosphere—we went to go watch the basketball game," he said. "If the atmosphere for a basketball game was that great, I can't imagine what it's like for a football game."
Also this spring, Moody has visited Vanderbilt and Mississippi State.
With offers from Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, South Carolina and Indiana, he does not claim a list of favorites. He said Oklahoma has recently expressed interest.
All schools, except for South Carolina, are recruiting Moody as a quarterback—the Gamecocks are evaluating him as an athlete.
"There's not a top group because I'm still looking and still waiting around, so there's nothing like that yet," he said.
As a junior, Moody threw for 1,197 yards and 11 touchdowns and ran for 507 yards and four touchdowns.
Henry County begins spring practice on May 9.
