He makes play after play for the Conway Tigers and even though opposing teams know he's going to get the rock they haven't had much success in slowing down Mykal Moody. Moody and Tramel Terry may be the most versatile athletes in the 2013 class here in South Carolina and the Conway standout has some impressive offers early on. SCPrepNation.com caught up with Moody to talk about his senior season, recruiting, and more on Tuesday.
Fresh off a spectacular performance last Friday against Marlboro County in which Conway defeated 42-40 barnburner we had to ask Moody exactly what was going through his mind during such an intense and fierce battle.
"Well the game atmosphere was great. It was very loud and just a great game to play in. What was going through my mind was just making sure I stayed positive for myself and my teammates. I ended up making a big play for my team."
It wasn't just one play that Moody made it was play after play after play that the talented signal caller made for the Tigers. He guided them to two fourth quarter touchdowns to seal the victory. At the end of the night Moody accounted for 6 touchdowns. He passed for 307 yards and 4 touchdowns while rushing for 74 yards and 2 more touchdowns on the ground. It's that ability to make plays with his arm and legs that has so many college coaches thinking about what it would be like to have the versatile prospect on their squad come next fall.
Asked if any particular schools were really pressing him harder than others right now he said that everybody is coming after him equally he feels currently. There are some other schools who the 2013 prospect feels may be close to pulling the trigger with more offers too.
Moody says he hasn't taken any visits yet but he plans on taking some in the next week or two.
Being so versatile various schools are recruiting him at different positions. He lines up primarily at quarterback for Conway so does Moody care where he plays on the next level?
"The position I feel I will play in college is either slot wide receiver, running back, free safety, or cornerback."
Having an open mind and being willing to play wherever a college coaching staff feels he's best suited to help their team shows the kind of dedication and unselfishness that Moody has. Looking ahead to college he talked with us about what factors he'll be weighing heavily when choosing a school.
"The biggest factors for me choosing a school are their education first and foremost, the style of offense is a huge part too if I play on offense, and lastly the chance to get early playing time."
Moody makes no bones about his biggest strengths and weaknesses on the field right now in his career either.
"My speed and agility are my biggest strengths right now. Playing quarterback being able to throw on the run or running when the play breaks down is another strength of mine."
"I need to continually get better at reading defenses to improve."
Asked if he patterns his game or style of play after any players in particular we saw a direct correlation with his response.
"I pattern my game after Reggie Bush and Barry Sanders."
Moody's agility and balance are first rate and his ability to stop on a dime and fully accelerate so quickly has driven opponents crazy over the years.
So when will Moody possibly make a commitment?
"At this point I'm not sure yet if it will be committing early or on National Signing Day."
You can best believe that if Mykal Moody continues to light up the scoreboard with his playmaking ability that more offers will soon start rolling in for him once his early season senior highlights are released.
