Grossmont DE likes the Aggies

A lot of football prospects like to take their time when making a decision on where they will play D-1 football. Some like to make their decisions early. That seems to be the case with Grossmont DE Matt Moss who will be taking an unofficial visit to College Station in less than two weeks and he could make a decision while he's on campus.

"I'm heading over to Texas A&M on May 11th to check them out and if things go well, I think I'll probably commit," Moss told "Their staff is really great and they seem like they really want to help their players to succeed.

"They've also told me that I can come in and challenge for time right away because the player at the position they want me at is going to be graduating."

Out of West Hills High School in California, Moss didn't qualify so he headed to Grossmont and has excelled both academically and athletically for the Griffins.

"My grades are good now, I just buckled down," Moss said. "I'm working out hard and I just ran a 4.68 at 270 pounds.

"My bench is up too. I just put up 430 the other day I rep 515 pounds 12 times on my squat."

As a freshman last season, Moss posted seven sacks and over 50 tackles and he plans to have a bigger year in 2007.

"I think I can be much better this year because I'm much faster and bigger than I used to be," Moss said. "It's amazing how I feel and I want to put up some big numbers this fall."

Even though he is likely to commit to the Aggies next weekend, Moss said Kansas State (offer), Washington State, Oregon, Arizona State, Ohio State and Utah State are schools he's also hearing from.

"The only school I might listen to if they offered me is USC," Moss said. "If they offered I'd have to think about some things, but if I commit to A&M before they offer then it won't matter. I believe if you make a commitment, then you need to stick with it, otherwise...why make the commitment?"

Moss will graduate with his two year degree in December and he'll have three years to play two when he arrives at the four-year school he decides to go to.
