Moye Talks Penn State

With his high school season wrapped up, Derek Moye will now be able to focus on his recruitment. Get an update on the wide receiver's visit plans as he tries to come to a final decision on where to play is collegiate ball and where Penn State currently stands after a recent PSU coaching visit.

Derek Moye, the 6-foot-5, 180-pound wide receiver prospect from Rochester Area High School in Rochester, Pa. said over the next couple of weeks he will take official visits to Boston College and Penn State in addition to a potential visit to Pittsburgh.

"I'm going to start going on a few visits," Moye said. "I'm going to Boston College next weekend (Dec. 9) and then Penn State the weekend after that (Dec. 16) and then to Pitt on January 5th, but I'm not sure about that yet."

Moye also said he would be in Morgantown, W.V. this weekend for the West Virginia versus Rutgers game for an unofficial visit. As of now, it appears these four schools – Boston College, Penn State, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia – are the final four in consideration for Moye, although he still hasn't ruled out one other team.

"Maybe Michigan State, but they have a new coaching staff, but it's the same staff that was recruiting me at Cincinnati," Moye said.

Moye also talked about Penn State's season and where the Nittany Lions stand at this point in his recruitment.

"I thought they did pretty good other than the one blowout loss to Notre Dame," Moye said. "I think they played all the teams they lost to they played them tough. A few plays and they could have won. Coach Bradley told me from the beginning of the year that this season wasn't going to be like last year that they'd be an average team because they had new starters. They're in the top for me in my recruiting."

Earlier this week, Moye also received an in-house visit from Coach Bradley.

"Coach Bradley came to my house on Monday to visit me," Moye said. "It was good, he talked to me and my family about a lot of things. He was pretty much telling me stuff about academics, but I already know they have a good academic program. Joe Paterno is really hard on his kids academically."

At this point, Moye is content with taking his official visits, then making a decision. Beyond that, Moye is in no rush to make a commitment.

"I really don't have a timeline, just pretty much when I get done with my visits," Moye said.
