Georgia DB hearing from Minnesota

Minnesota is searching for another couple of defensive backs in their 2016 class and one Georgia safety has received a lot of recent attention from the Gophers. GopherDigest spoke with Josh Moran to learn more about his recruiting.

"I have about five schools who say they're close to offering, but just want to see about three or four games of my senior year," Josh Moran said to GopherDigest. "Those schools are Stanford, Kansas State, BYU, Missouri and Minnesota. I've been talking with Coach Anderson from Stanford, Coach Coleman and Snyder from Kansas State, Coach Kool from Missouri, Coach Howell from BYU and Coach Schaekel from Minnesota. I haven't set up any official visits yet as I'm waiting on a couple of those schools to come into the mix, then I'll some up."

The Gophers are a brand new team for Moran.

"I haven't been talking with them long at all as they came out of nowhere somewhat," Moran explained. "I remember getting mail from them, but that it's until about four days ago when their recruiting coordinator direct messaged me on Twitter. He said that they loved my junior film and can see my playing safety or getting bigger and moving down to outside linebacker. They want to see how I've progressed from last year and watch some senior film before they offer. I don't know a whole lot about Minnesota, but if they offered, I'd visit for sure. I don't really know how they heard about me as I don't remember having them visit in the spring, but I'm happy to have them in the mix now."

The Georgia defensive back has a few schools standing out to him right now.

"I'd say that Cal, West Virginia, Kansas State and Stanford are sitting well with me," Moran told GopherDigest. "Cal and West Virginia have offered, but I love the educational opportunities at Cal and Stanford, I love the great football program and coaches at West Virginia and I loved everything about my visit at Kansas State, so we'll see what happens here soon."
