Another plus is his familiarity with the Tampa 2 defense.
"I'm pretty familiar with it and comfortable with it," Moody said.
"It's actually a defense I prefer being in just because I like the way
the zone is set and the man set pretty much plays out and I think it
will help I and the other players make big plays."
But in order to play in this complex defense, Moody needs to get faster
"Things I personally know I need to work on is of course getting faster
because that level of play is at a much higher tempo," Moody said.
"There is faster guys up there, quicker, so that's definitely one thing
I have to work on and of course working on my footwork and being more
flexible and stronger."
The physical aspect is important but the mental side may be more
crucial to a young player trying to find his place at the college
"Just continuing to be a player of the game and you can never know too
much about what a team is going to do to you," Moody said. "So just
continue to study film and learn more."
Head coach Brian Polian really loves character and this young man has
plenty. Wolf Pack fans should be excited to watch Moody play because
the secondary may have improved with the arrival of this confident
Many schools such as Colorado State, Hawaii and Idaho went after Moody
because of his unique characteristics but Moody felt the instant
connection with Nevada's coaching staff and the community.
"This is an amazing class, definitely coach Polian and the rest of the
staff really did a great job this year recruiting," Moody said. "The
next four years and more after that will be really special."
