2014 OL Moss Recalls Maryland Visit

Highly sought after prospect Steven Moss talks about his trip to College Park

Juggling 14 offers through the most critical point of the season is no easy task, but top offensive lineman Steven Moss has been able to do it impressively.

The 2014 Virginia standout has helped Chancellor High School to an 8-2 record, a district championship, and a number one seed going into the playoffs. Needless to say, Moss has had a busy fall, but early on in September, he had the time to go College Park and take an unofficial visit to Maryland.

While he was there, Maryland's football facility, and got to step foot on the football field before watching the Terps take on William and Mary. He also got the chance to meet the coaching staff and players before the game.

“The majority of the time I was with Coach Brattan, but of course I talked to Randy Edsall and all of them too,” Moss said.

Moss was generally pleased with the size of Maryland's campus.

“It's pretty spread out,” he said.

The junior from Fredericksburg, Va. was not surprised with the type of atmosphere he saw during the Terps' home opener, and has noticed trend amongst the ACC schools he has visited so far.

“It was pretty nice watching the game and everything. It's pretty much like any of the other ACC environments,” Moss said. “[Byrd Stadium] was nice, it's a pretty good sized stadium.”

The four-star recruit has been sitting on an offer from Maryland, and Assistant Coach Tom Brattan has kept in touch with him throughout the season. However, with the amount of interest Moss has been getting, he has made sure to remain impartial at this stage of the recruiting process.

“I have all of my schools the same right now,” he said. Moss plans on condensing his long list of schools to five by the spring.

Moss said that he had worked extensively with his teammates during the off-season to develop a more cohesive offensive line. At 6-foot-5 and 275-pounds, he believes that his best attributes can be described with three words.

“Fast feet, physical, and mean.”

Moss has also paid unofficial visits to Ohio State, Virginia, South Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia. He plans to visit Alabama on November 9 since Chancellor has a first-round bye in the playoffs.
