O'Fallon Back On the Verge

O'Fallon sophomore running back Kentrail Moran already holds a pair of offers, but he could be on the verge of collecting several more, including offers from a few BCS schools.

Despite being just a sophomore, O'Fallon (IL) running back Kentrail Moran was a workhorse this year for the Panthers. His performance has already earned him two in-state offers.

Following a first-round exit against Naperville's Neuqua Valley high school, Moran got right back to work on his weight training, and in just a couple days, he'll be back at it on his speed training.

"My offseason is going pretty well," he said. "My speed training actually starts the night of the Super Bowl."

Moran will be training during the second half of the game, but make no mistake, he still plans on finding a way to watch the game while he works.

"I'm still going to record it for sure, but I'll be watching it at my speed workout, too," he said.

Coaches have been at O'Fallon consistently the last few years. The school has produced recruits such as Darius Mosely (Illinois), Mike Cotton, Dewayne Hendrix (Tennessee), and several others in recent years. Now, schools are there to see the sophomore Moran.

"Michigan's head coach (Brady Hoke) came to see me Wednesday and Missouri's head coach came to see me today," Moran said. "I've been talking to a lot of coaches though."

Moran currently holds offers from Illinois and Northern Illinois, but he feels a couple of other BCS programs in the Midwest could be very close to offering.

"I think Michigan and Notre Dame could both be pretty close," he said.

Moran said Illinois coaches haven't stopped in yet this offseason, but they've been keeping in touch a lot with the in-state prospect and that at this time he doesn't have any visits planned.
