"I'm hearing a lot from lot of schools," Moye said. "My three favorites are probably Penn State, Boston College, and Maryland."

In addition to the Nittany Lions, Eagles, and Terrapins, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Temple, and Miami (OH) have also extended written offers. Moye said that Penn State coach Tom Bradley is recruiting him for the Nittany Lions.

"Most of the schools are recruiting me as a wide receiver," Moye said. "Penn State is recruiting me as athlete. They said they want to try me at multiple position, whatever is best for the team, that's where thy put me."

"I think I'm probably going to wait until after the season and get all of my visits in," Moye said. "My coach wants me to do it before the season to avoid the stress."
