At 5-foot-9 and 210 pounds, Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely standout running back Tyrone Moss continues running over opposing defenses as his team inches closer to a chance at a state championship.
"We've come too close the last couple years," Moss said. "It belongs to us this year. We play Atlantic Friday and they knocked us out last year. That game is ours."
Moss has been doing his part.
Despite missing 2 1/2 games this season due to injury, Moss has gained 1,610 yards and 25 touchdowns, including a 245-yard performance in the second round playoff game on Friday.
A full academic qualifier with an 870 SAT score, Moss said he's getting tired of the recruiting process.
"I'm tired of it," he said. "Some nights I don't even answer the phone. Four coaches have told me they're coming by the house on December 1. I'm trying to stay focused on winning a championship so I think I'm going to make my commitment real soon."
How soon is Moss looking to make his decision?
"I'll probably make my commitment in the first week of December," he said. "I've already taken three of my visits and I know what Miami's all about."
Moss has already made official visits to Michigan State, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina.
"I'd say Virginia Tech was the best," he said. "I'm liking them still. After Lee Suggs leaves, it'll be me and Kevin Jones running the show. They're coming by to visit me on December 1."
Moss said he's not sure whether he'll take another official visit.
"I'm thinking maybe Oklahoma but I don't know about all that," he said. "They started calling and it got me excited but I dont know right now. I'll be at Miami for their game against Virginia Tech and I've already been there so many times that I know what it's all about. My visit is scheduled for late January."
Moss talked more about the Hurricanes.
"It's looking good for Miami," he said. "If Willis leaves, then it'll pretty much be me and Frank Gore. He's a great player and that's the type of competition I like. I talk to the coaches every week."
Moss was asked which school he likes the most right now.
"I'd say there are two right now," he said. "That would be Miami and Virginia Tech. I like them both a lot and it'll be a tough decision."
