"It's finally here," Moss told me. "You have no idea how excited I am. This is something I've dreamed of my entire life and I can't wait to get started on Thursday."
Moss spent most of this summer working out with his future teammates and also went through freshman testing.
"I ran a 4.38/40 and ran a 4.11 shuttle," he said. "Then I had a 39 inch vertical leap."
Moss, who is rooming with cousin Glenn Sharpe at UM, talked about his workouts this summer.
"Coach Swasey has been working us really hard," he said. "He's been great. He earns your respect real quickly and keeps it because he's always looking out for what's best. But man, does he work you."
Moss said he's had the opportunity to learn from some pretty good players this summer.
"In 7 on 7 drills, I had the chance to learn a lot of new things," he said. "Guys like Kevin Beard and Roscoe Parrish taught me some things and I'm ready to start practicing now. It's been fun competing with Akieem, Ryan, and Devin this summer."
Moss also talked about some of the defensive backs.
"Sean Taylor is awesome out there," he said. "He'll have a chance to become an All-American for us this season if he works hard enough. Kelly Jennings has also been very good. For the freshmen, Glenn's been doing real well and Bain made a lot of plays out there."
The talented wide receiver talked about the possibility of redshirting this season.
"I feel as if I can help make an impact on this team as a true freshman," he said. "Bu maybe the coaches see it differently. If they do, that's fine and I'll be glad to redshirt. I just want to be able to help in any way I can."
The speedy wide out then talked about his goals for this coming season.
"It's all about staying focused and getting the job done," he said. "We have a lot of great players on this team but it can't stop there. In order to be a great team, we all need to work hard and stay focused and play as a team. If we can do that early on, I think we should be OK. I'm going to try to learn the plays as quickly as possible and try to earn the respect of players like Ken Dorsey, who is so important to the success of the team."
