Moran Anticipates Upcoming U-M Visit

Rated Scout's No. 4 RB in its latest 2016 player rankings, Moran says Michigan is still sitting near the top of his schools of interest despite not having an offer from the Maize & Blue.

"I don't have a top-five," Moran said. "But they are definitely are real high on my list. … Michigan has a great winning program. I like how they run their program. I like their running game."

Currently, the 5-foot-11, 193-pounder holds offers from Illinois, Syracuse and Northern Illinois. He says along with Michigan, he also intends on visiting Oregon, Tennessee, Kentucky and Michigan State in the near future.

"I looking for a school that makes me feel comfortable and where I can play right away," Moran said. "I am also looking where I can get a great education at."

In the meantime, Moran says he is focused on having a huge junior campaign.

"I am just going to continue to work hard," Moran said on his upcoming season. "I'm just going to work hard than the next man. I want to show people what I can do. And this season I plan on running for 2,000 yards."
