Sounds like another school might be entering the fray, while either Texas or OU may be on its way out of the Jarvis Moss sweepstakes.
At this point, the nations second-ranked defensive end prospect has accumulated over 60 tackles and nine sacks. Numbers like that make you wonder if Moss could see himself playing for Texas.
"Texas is an ideal place for any football player," said Moss. "They have great players, great coaches and they recruit really well."
Playing time is an issue with several high-profile kids and Moss has discussed the possibilities of reaching the field early at Texas with his high school coach, Joey Florence. "When me and Coach were at the Texas-Iowa State game, he pointed Bryan Pickryl (true frosh DE) to me," said Moss. "Coach Florence said that would probably be the guy I would be competing against and it got me thinking. It made me think a lot about getting to play there early and stuff."
Moss is being recruited by Hardee McCrary (recruiting coordinator/defensive ends coach) and he said he spoke with Mack Brown just the other day. He thinks both are the some of the nicest coaches you could meet.
Closer to National Signing Day is where this commitment seemingly is headed. Definitely after the five visits are taken, according to Moss, and not a moment before. Somebody will be doing cartwheels and it won't be Moss, as the ball is clearly in his court.
