Silent commit?

The term "silent commit" is ugly. I mean, what does it mean? So a player told a school that is where he's going. Presumably, he told the other school(s) that he isn't going there as a result. Again, that is presumed. Avery Moss says you can't only presume he's made up his mind, but each school knows where he is going to go already.

Avery Moss from Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol is down to two. Next cut is a commitment. Moss says that he's set to announce on national television next week.

"It's down to two," Moss said. "My list is final. I am down to Nebraska and Purdue and I will announce at the Semper Fidelis All-American game on January 3rd."

Moss will be playing football in the Big Ten one way or another. Both schools have academics and while one school says playing time might come next year the other says sit out a year and play as a starter for four years.

"I would have to say that I like the academics at Purdue. I also like that I could play immediately there. They are talking about early playing time.

"I like the coaching staff at Nebraska a lot. I also like the academics there are Nebraska too. Nebraska has told me that they would redshirt and start for four years."

Moss is a little unsure how he will announce for sure. In a way he's already announced. Both Purdue and Nebraska know which way this is going to end for Moss. It's just on Moss now to keep it on the wraps until he's on television.

"I think that I will be using two hats and then I will just pick one up and put it on. The two schools already know. I have already talked to both of them.

"I wanted them to know ahead of time before the commitment. I just need to keep it quiet now. I think that will be easy enough for me to do."

Nebraska fans seem to have a good feeling about Jared Afalava and his upcoming announcement at the Semper Fi game. It's down to Nebraska and Washington for Afalava. Nebraska fans could get two commits though with Moss possibly.

"Yeah, that would be interesting. It's going to be interesting to see how everything plays out; there won't be any hints from me."
