Any questions or concerns Northeastern (Elizabeth City, N.C.) linebacker Jamieon Moss may have had with respect to his commitment to Virginia Tech appear to have been alleviated.
“I’m pretty much closing off everyone else,” said Moss, who took an official visit to Virginia Tech this past weekend. He reportedly considered taking official visits to other schools. “Actually, I’m not really considering any other schools at all.”
Moss originally committed to East Carolina, but when the childhood favorite Hokies came calling he decided to switch his pledge.
“When I was young, my dad loved Virginia Tech and I had teachers that liked Virginia Tech a lot. Growing up, I just loved it,” Moss said.
Last weekend’s visit to Virginia Tech “was an experience like no other,” the senior standout said. “It was nice. I had a good time with the team and the other prospects coming in. All the people were cool. The players are humble. It was an exciting trip.”
Moss enjoyed his time with current players such as Bruce Taylor and fellow recruits such as David Prince and Kyle Chung, but he also had an opportunity to check out Virginia Tech’s defense in practice. The 6’3″, 215-pound prospect is being recruited by Tech to play the Backer position.
“Bud Foster talked with me. I watched practice, and he went over plays with me and was helping me understand the pass coverage,” said Moss, who saw action at three different linebacker spots in his senior season at Northeastern.
Northeastern won 11 and lost only three in the 2012 season. Moss did see some action on a potent Eagles offense that scored over 40 points in 10 games, but his major value was on defense, where he racked up over 100 tackles on the year.
“College coaches say they like my motor and that I’ve got a motor. I’m always running down plays,” Moss said.
