Moss: "I don't really care where we play"

"I committed to Texas to play at Texas, I don't really care where we play. We are going to dominate whoever and where ever we go," said linebacker commitment Chet Moss. Come inside to see the latest on this 2011 linebacker.

When asked this weekend what conference he would be playing in some day, Chet Moss didn't know. The soon to be senior didn't care. The Cedar Park product like many recruits had been following the scenarios and reports closely.

"I committed to Texas to play at Texas, I don't really care where we play. We are going to dominate whoever and where ever we go," said Moss. "It would be cool to play teams like California, Oregon, and Washington, because they are cooler states than Nebraska, Kansas, or Iowa. We just want to go play the best and beat the best."

With the conference alignment picture becoming clearer on Monday night, it sounds like Moss was probably happy

"I have been following it, but there is just so many rumors and stuff. It's hard to tell what is legit and what is not," said the linebacker. "Scout.com, Rivals.com, and ESPN all say different things at different times, so I don't know if anyone knows. It's hard to say."

With spring football over, Moss has turned his attention to his individual summer workouts and 7-on-7. Cedar Park made the 7-on-7 state tourney at College Station last year, but was bounced quickly, losing four games in a row

"We are always good, but I don't know if we will go to state and stuff this year. It doesn't really matter to us like some teams," said Moss. "Last year we went down to state and got trampled on, but we are better this year. We will just see what happens.

"Individually I'm just working on everything. I'm really working on the side to side and the changing of direction type things. Really I'm just trying to get a little bit bigger and a little bit faster."

After recording 75 tackles, five force fumbles, and one interception in 2009, Moss committed to the Longhorn on junior day. A decision that has changed his life forever.

"Walking around, a lot of the people in Central Texas know who I am. It's pretty cool. I'm really humbled by everything," said Moss. "It definitely keeps me a lot more accountable. I'm more aware of what I do and who I hang out with, because I can't mess up. It's really cool to just be part of the Longhorn program and the family."

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Texas verbal pledge was recruited to play the Mike or the Will linebacker position.
