Three-star Pullman (Wash.) High tight end Ben Moos recently jumped on to the Syracuse radar. The staff reached out to the 6-foot-3 prospect and initiated communication. After discovering there was mutual interest, an in-home visit was quickly set up and took place Monday evening.
"(It) went great," Moos said. "Definitely very interested in Syracuse. Set an official for the last weekend of January. I believe it's the 27th."
It is, in fact, the weekend of January 27th, when several other prospects will be on campus. Including quarterback commit Tommy DeVito. No doubt that DeVito will be helping the Orange convince Moos that Central New York should be his next home.
Moos was offered during the in-home visit, putting Syracuse into the mix along with several other schools. They include Utah, Washington State, Arizona State, Louisville and others.
Interestingly, Moos is the son of current Washington State Athletics Director Bill Moos. Despite that, the younger Moos has not committed to the Cougars even though he attended every home game this season. Could be he looking to go elsewhere?
Syracuse certainly hopes so. The Orange have a huge need at tight end even with Aaron Hackett already committed. There is a golden opportunity for incoming tight ends to earn immediate playing time.
Moos has size and athleticism. He is a skilled, physical blocker who can also be a threat as a receiver.
