Pac 12 program stands out for Moffitt

Concord (Calif.) De La Salle has three BCS level linebackers on the roster. The least heralded of the group is D.J. Moffitt but he's a very talented player in his right.

D.J. Moffitt is a 6-2, 205 pound athlete with the versatility to play outside ‘backer or safety in college. He said most schools are recruiting him as a weak side linebacker and his offer list continues to grow.

"Right now my offers are from Arizona, Colorado, Houston, UNLV, Utah and Washington State," Moffitt said. "Colorado is definitely recruiting me the hardest right now and I like them a lot. Coach Cabral, the LB coach, is the one recruiting me and we have a good relationship.

"I like Arizona a lot too and those are two schools I know I want to take my official visits to. Right now, I'm planning to take all my official visits but I don't have any dates yet and I'm not sure when I'll be able to take them because of our schedule."

The Spartans are two-time defending state champions and typically play through the middle of December, making it hard, at times, for their players to take visits during the season.

"We play all our games on Friday and then Saturday, we watch film and do a mini workout," Moffitt said. "It's mostly just running and stretching to loosen ourselves up and break up the lactic acid. So if I wanted to take a visit, it would have to be after our workout Saturday and then I'd have to be back Sunday night.

"A few other schools I'm looking at visiting are Houston since I have some family in Texas and UNLV. I don't know a lot about Utah but I'm going to look more in to them as well. I'm looking for a school with a winning program that is strong academically and location will play a role as well."
