Three Teams To Beat?

Knowshon Moreno is one of the those players that does his talking on the football field. Throughout the recruiting process he's been reluctant to name any favorites but he promised in a recent interview that he would narrow his list shortly after Christmas. It appears he has now done that and a trio of big time schools look to have the best shot at earning his signature. Who are they?

"Well I'm going to visit Florida on the 20th and I go to Virginia Tech on the 27th. Georgia is in there as well but I'm just taking it one day at a time. I guess you could kind of say it's those three teams right now," Knowshon Moreno said.

Moreno was reluctant to call the Gators, Dawgs and Hokies his top three because he admits there is an opporunity for other schools to still get back in it. It's readily apparent though that any team looking to garner his signature outside of those three East Coast powers will be fighting a bit of an uphill battle.

The New Jersey star is getting the recruiting equivalent to the fullcourt press but Moreno is being careful not to get caught up.

"Florida tells me I'm the their top guy and so does Georgia and Virginia Tech, just like all the other schools. You have to look past that stuff though because you never know."

When asked why he liked those three programs, Knowshon gave the same answer for each.

"Their coaching staffs are good people and I just want to see the surroundings and see how I like it."

He visited Athens officially back in the month of September and says he will absolutely take his visits to Gainesville and Blacksburg as well.

"Im not sure if my decision will be signing day or not. I'll see how it feels after these visits. I'm definitely going to take both of those trips in January."
