UM Lands 6th Commitment

One of the state's top prospects has committed to Miami. "I'm going to Miami because the kids they have there now are there to work. That's what I'm all about. The coaches are real excited about me coming, and I can't wait to be a part of it. UM's going to win it all this year, no doubt."

When I watched his tape yesterday, I was blown away by how impressive Carol City wide receiver Senorice Moss was. He was off the charts. He ran circles around Northwestern cornerback Travarous Bain. I told everyone on the premium board last night that Moss is a Top 20 kid in ths state, and I wanted to call him immediately. Well, he has committed to the Hurricanes.

"I've committed to Miami," Moss said moments ago. "I chose them over Auburn in the end. Auburn's a great program with great coaches and I really liked it there, but UM is where my heart's at and that's where I really want to be."

Tennessee, N.C. State, and Rutgers are among those who also called Moss this past weekend.

At 5-foot-8 and 168 pounds, Moss has electrifying speed. He's arguably the most explosive player in the state. I didn't see it in him last year or even in the spring, but in his season opener, he displayed Santana-like quickness.

"It'll be wonderful," Moss said about going to the same program that his older brother helped re-define over the last few years. "He broke a lot of records there, and it'll give me something to aim for. There won't be any pressure. Everyone thinks I'm going to do what Santana did. No, I'm going to do what Senorice does."

"I talk to my brother all the time," he said. "He always tells me just keep doing what I'm doing. Do what I can do and everything will be fine."

Moss is the third wide receiver to commit to Miami this week. "We got a great group coming in here," he said. "And I love it that way. Darnell Jenkins, the cat from New Orleans, and myself. That just helps the quarterback spread the ball around more easily. You're seeing that this year with Dorsey throwing to guys like Ethenic Sands, Kevin Beard, and Andre Johnson. Balls are flying everywhere and touchdowns are being made. That's what we're going to be about."

"UM's going to win it all this year, no doubt," Moss said. "They worked really hard all summer long, the players, the coaches, everyone. They're out there for one reason, and that's to win the national championship. UM's back on top, and I'm going to be a part of it real soon."

Moss, who has a 2.8 GPA and has already passed both sections of the HSCT, is UM's sixth commitment of the season, joining Emmitt Tatum, Antonio Reynolds, Akieem Jolla, Darnell Jenkins, and Marc Guillon.
