His senior season completed, Meadowbrook (Richmond, VA) offensive tackle Morgan Moses will now look to the off-season, which includes of course figuring out which school he will sign a letter of intent with in February. The 6-7, 340-pound senior will likely use this month to figure out which official visits he will take. Most, if not all, of those visits will take place in January.

“He’ll make his decision probably later on in the process, but he wants to take a closer look at the schools he wants to look at,” Meadowbrook head coach Bill Bowles said. “I don’t have any indication as to which way he might be leaning at this point. He has visits he wants to take care of, which is why I believe he’ll decide closer to Signing Day.”

Moses has taken unofficial visits to Florida, Maryland, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. His most recent visit was last Saturday to Virginia Tech, a program once thought to be on the outside looking in. Coach Bowles believes the Hokies are in contention, though.

“He did go to Virginia Tech this past weekend,” Bowles said. “We’ve got a couple of players there that Mo has played with, so he has always taken that into consideration. I don’t think he has ruled out either of the state schools at all. I think Tech is still in the running. Virginia is so close, so it is only natural that he would’ve been up there more. Morgan is just taking his time.”

Academics have been a question mark with Moses, but coach Bowles believes the Monarchs standout is making progress.

“I think he is doing good in that area,” Bowles said. “He is working at it and making progress.”

Asked if any schools have mentioned the possibility of going to prep school, Bowles answered, “I think it is a little early for that, but I’m sure they all have a plan.”

A first-team all-state and first-team all-metro performer last season as a junior, Moses has so far earned first-team all-district honors for his senior season performance.
