Cedar Park is becoming a must-stop school for college evaluators. The Timberwolves have a handful of legitimate Football Bowl Subdivision prospects in their junior class including Texas Longhorn pledge Dom Espinosa. Two sophomores are already drawing attention, so Burnt Orange Beat spoke with sophomore linebacker Chet Moss recently.
Chet Moss at 6-1 and 225 pounds plays inside strongside linebacker in the 3-4 base defense for the Cedar Park Timberwolves. As a sophomore in a little over six games, he recorded 62 tackles and three sacks. His sophomore performance is already drawing interest from college recruiters.
"I am hearing from Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State, and Stanford a lot," Moss recently told Burnt Orange Beat. Most of the schools are trying to get Moss to attend a summer camp.
"I want to go to camps where I might have interest in attending. There is no reason to spend all of that money if I am not going to go to school there," Moss added.
So does the Austin-area backer have any interest in the hometown Longhorns? Absolutely.
"I've definitely been a big Longhorn fan," Moss said. "My family is close with Coach Madden, the (Texas) strength coach. He was my dad's strength coach at Rice."
In fact, Moss has already been invited to a summer camp at Texas. He also watched the first day of spring practice, attended last week's closed scrimmage, and plans to attend this weekend's Spring Game.
In addition to football, Moss runs the 100m and several relays for the Cedar Park track team.
