Like many of his high school football peers, Kings Fork (Va.) 2022 defensive end Kyree Moyston has not taken any college visits during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But he has seen a pair of his options for non-athletic events.

Moyston continues to see his recruiting profile steadily rise, largely because of seven-on-seven games that have taken place in lieu of a fall season. He has five scholarship offers, from Virginia Tech, Arizona State, Pittsburgh, Old Dominion and Liberty. The only one Moyston said he has any familiarity with is ODU, where his sister attended school.. His brother graduated from James Madison University, and Moyston attended both graduation ceremonies.

For Moyston, there’s not a lot to go by. He hasn’t taken any virtual visits, but through other means of communication, he said he’s tried his best to just get a feel for some of his early options.

“Basically, it’s been talking on FaceTime with coaches and stuff,” Moyston said. “Building relationships, that’s all I can do right now. I got to know the coaches more personally, more about the staffs at all the schools. But that’s it for now. They’ve all talked to me, but I can’t say much right now overall.”

Virginia Tech offered Moyston on Oct. 21, and for now there’s only slight familiarity with the Hokies.

Tapp has been Moyston’s primary recruiter. They’ve talked briefly on a few occasions, giving him at least an introduction to Virginia Tech.

“He’s a cool dude, a real cool dude,” he said of Tapp. “I got to talk to him, he went to the NFL, so I asked questions about the NFL. I asked him about when he got there, and he told me it was more of a grind and stuff like that.”

Arizona State was the first Power Five school to offer, on Oct. 18. The offer caught him a bit off guard.

“If I’m not mistaken, I was texting a coach on Twitter,” Moyston said. “He texted me on Twitter. I talked to him and then Coach (graduate assistant Steve) Beard and then before I knew it, I had an offer. They said they watched my film. I was really surprised with the offer.”

Whenever he can, Moyston said he hopes to visit all of his current offers and more schools. He’s had time to think about what qualities he’s looking for when he can see schools first-hand.

“I want a good family environment, a good education, too,” Moyston said. “If
