Moye Plans to Visit PSU

Penn State has had its share of unofficial visitors this summer and it is about to get another. Derek Moye is heading to Happy Valley this coming Monday. See where the Nittany Lions stand with the Keystone State standout in this update.

"Nothing has really been going on, but I know I'm going to Penn State on Monday," Derek Moye said. "Before then, I'm visiting West Virginia on Saturday to check out their practice. I think I'm also going to visit Pitt but I haven't set anything up yet."

Moye, the 6-foot-5, 190-pound wide receiver prospect from Rochester High in Rochester, Pa., plans on spending all day Monday in Happy Valley for an unofficial visit.

"I'm going to spend the day there," Moye said. "I'm not really too sure of anything in particular, but I want to watch practice and hang out with the team."

As far as Moye's interest in Penn State is concerned, he indicated that the Nittany Lions are in a good position.

"They're still pretty high," Moye said. "They're up there in my top three. I'm really interested in them."

One thing that has changed with respect to Penn State's recruitment of Moye is that the staff has changed its projection on where it sees Moye contributing. Much like recent recruiting classes, the Nittany Lions have gone after the coveted "athlete" capable of playing multiple positions, of which Moye fits the mold. However, it seems that the Penn State staff is focusing on recruiting Moye for one position now.

"Before, Coach [Tom] Bradley told me they were recruiting me as an athlete, but now they want me as a receiver, like a slot receiver," Moye said. "Receiver is my preference."

Moye plans on taking his time with the recruiting process. A commit before he starts his season is unlikely.

"They haven't pressed me and I don't feel pressure," Moye said. "I think I'm going to wait until the middle of the season after I get a few official visits in. Penn State, that's almost a lock that I'm going to visit for an official visit."
