Moss will see Nebraska

Nebraska will have a pair of high school defensive end recruits in town this weekend. One, Nate Iesi, was set to head out on Thanksgiving morning to get to Lincoln. The other, Avery Moss from Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol will also head out later on Thanksgiving Day with a fellow team mate to see Nebraska. What is he looking forward to seeing in Lincoln?

Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol saw marked improvement from the junior year of Avery Moss to his senior year. They finished as a .500 team and nearly made it into the playoffs.

"We're done," Moss said. "We didn't make it to the playoffs and it fell a little short of what we were hoping, but it was a big change from last year to this year.

"We went 1-10 last year so anything winning more than a couple of games would be good for us. We went 5-5 and missed the playoffs by just .3 of a power point."

Moss was a little hard on his individual stats citing that he could have performed better, but he said that players should always want to play better. "I don't know how many tackles I had, but I had five sacks. I could have done better. I played some offense too at tight end."

Moss will be on the road over the holiday heading up to Lincoln to see Nebraska for an official visit. He won't be traveling alone and he's interested to see what the environment, including the weather, will be in Lincoln this weekend.

"I am going to Nebraska this weekend. I am going up there with Andrus Peat for the Iowa game on Friday. I am looking forward to seeing the school and talking to the educational people.

"Besides that I want to see what the weather is going to be like and if it's going to be cold. It's going to be a totally different thing being away from a warmer climate.

"I also want to get some time with the coaches to really talk to them and build a relationship with them. I want to see how they are on the field and off the field with their players."

Moss just took one official visit and says after this weekend he will have his third the following week. He is looking at a couple of other schools for his final two visits, but they are not set up yet.

"I just took an official visit to Arizona State this past weekend and the week after Nebraska I am going up to Purdue. I am going to try and take a visit to Washington and want to go to Arizona."
