Meadowbrook (Richmond, VA) star offensive lineman Morgan Moses, considered one of the top overall prospects in the state of Virginia’s 2009 class, attended Virginia Tech’s Spring Game this past Saturday. We caught up with the 6-7, 340-pound prospect, who discussed the overall experience at Tech and provided the latest on his recruitment.

Saturday’s Spring Game gave Moses a chance to see more of Virginia Tech, but it also gave him a chance to catch up with friend and former teammate John Graves.

“John Graves and I talk often,” said Moses, who made the trip with Meadowbrook head coach Bill Bowles. Bowles coached Graves as well. “He is a real good guy and we’ve got a lot in common. He never tries to pressure me. He always talks about the positives at Virginia Tech. He gives me updates on what is going on.”

Graves was one positive about the Virginia Tech experience. Another was the fan turnout, which was significant.

“It showed me that the fans are dedicated to the team,” Moses said. “That is a real good thing.”

Moses also enjoyed speaking with Virginia Tech’s coaches.

“They all make me feel at home,” Moses said. “It was a good atmosphere and I liked it a lot.”

Overall, the visit to Blacksburg certainly was a positive for Moses. The first-team all-state performer had a positive experience in Charlottesville as well earlier this spring, when he attended a Virginia spring practice.

“It was good,” Moses said of the UVa spring practice. “I enjoyed it. The practice moved at a fast pace. I got along with everyone. The coaches show me a lot of love, and that is the same thing at Virginia Tech.”

Moses did not let on to if he has any favorite schools at this point in the process. He has enjoyed his experiences at both in-state programs, but he is open to out-of-state schools as well. Moses currently holds seven official offers including Clemson, Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

“Virginia Tech and UVa have great people, great fans and great coaches,” Moses said. “They are real good schools. But, I’m also looking forward to seeing the out-of-state schools. All of the out-of-state schools are impressive, too, so I’m looking forward to seeing all of them.”

Moses does not have any other visits scheduled, but he is excited to talk to college coaches during the Evaluation Period, which
