Gator Pipeline Broken?

Melbourne (Fla.) Palm Bay has been a pipeline to the University of Florida. Two years ago the Seminoles came very close to putting a leak in that pipe by almost signing running back Joe Cohen. There have been whispers amongst Seminole fans to stay away from that school because of the Gator stronghold in that area. However, this time around it seems to be a much different story.


"I don't want to spend the next four years of my life in Gainesville," 6-foot-2 and 230 pound linebacker Neefy Moffett said. "It's a lot like the town I live in now boring. However, I do like the coaches and players there now."

The Palm Bay standout is currently open among Southern Cal, LSU, Miami, Florida State and Ohio State.

The Seminoles have a built in advantage with having two of his brothers living in Tallahassee.

"It will be factor, he said. "I'm in Tallahassee right now and I won't participate in the camp but I plan on hanging out there for the four days it runs though."

What does he like about the Noles?

"Florida State has tradition and they always have good outside linebackers," he said. "I also like Tallahassee. There's a lot to do there."

What does he like about the LSU Tigers and Miami Hurricanes?

"My former teammate Xavier Carter is at LSU and he's starting recruiting me real hard," he said. "I grew up a Miami fan and I've always liked them."

Moffett will also take an unofficial visit to LSU later in the summer.

Moffett will make all of his official visits before making a decision on signing day in February.

Last spring in his jamboree, he recorded eight tackles and scored one touchdown.

As a junior Moffett recorded 100 tackles and 16 sacks.
