Scouting Report: "One of the things that jump out with Moss is that he came into the top high school program in the state and immediately became one of Mallard Creek's top offensive stars. Perhaps Moss's biggest strength is his hand-eye coordination and the ability to high point the ball. He shows great concentration and it seems that the tougher the catch, the better he performs. Moss has very good fundamentals and catches the ball consistently with his hands and shows some toughness after the catch.
"Perhaps one aspect that is overlooked is his ability as a blocker. Moss locks on to his defender and doesn't mind mixing it up in the run game. He will give newly hired offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz a lot of options whether lined up tight or flexed out wide in the passing game." -- Pack Pride Recruiting Analyst Steve Williams
