Moody has Options

Mykal Moody is one of the most dynamic players South Carolina. After a huge junior season, Moody has attracted attention from some of the top college football programs in the country.

Mykal Moody is an explosive playmaker. The Conway (S.C.) High athlete can do it all on the football field. It should come as no surprise that several college programs are pursuing him.

"I have four offers – Ole Miss, Kentucky, N.C. State, and Marshall," said Mykal Moody. "I am also hearing from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, South Carolina, and Georgia Tech"

Despite all the interest, Moody has not made any decisions.

"I really don't have a top school," he said. "I just want to keep my options open because I have been talking to a lot of schools."

Who could be the next school to offer Moody?

"I think it is a toss-up between Clemson and South Carolina," he said. "I have been talking to them both for a while."

Moody has been on the road quite a bit this summer.

"I have been to South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia Tech, and N.C. State," he said. "I really liked Clemson a lot. They have a very nice campus."

The rest of the summer will not be nearly as busy for the Conway star.

"I'm done with camps," said Moody. "But I need to talk to my dad because I think going to Ole Miss on (July) 20."

The 5-foot-11,185-pound prospect plays quarterback for his high school team, but will likely play another position at the next level.

"A lot of schools are recruiting me to play slot receiver or defensive back," Moody said. "Some schools are also recruiting me to play some Wildcat quarterback."

Moody does not have a set timetable for his recruitment.

"I am not sure when I will narrow my list of schools," he said. If more offers come in, I am going to wait. If not, I will probably cut my list down in early September."

"I would like to commit sometime between middle of September and early October."

Moody said he knew that he would take official visits to Ole Miss and Kentucky, but was unsure about any others. Last season, he ran for 1,500 yards and 28 touchdowns. Through the air, he had 1,500 yards passing and 20 touchdowns. Moody bench presses 290 pounds, squats 365, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds.
