Wide Receiver, Class of 2021
North Cobb, Kennesaw, GA
North Cobb (Ga.) three-star wide receiver Christian Moss was one of the fortunate few to have played high school football in 2020, and it’s a big reason why he’s now signed to attend and play football at Virginia Tech.
Moss entered the 2020 season with no football scholarship offers. On Sept. 23, he received his first, from FCS school Bryant University and on Dec. 6, he received his first FBS offer, from the Hokies.

It’s very nice, and I just can’t wait to get up there and be on campus, just to see everything.”
Moss was recruited primarily by assistant coach Jafar Williams, and from the first time Williams made contact nearly two months ago, Moss said he liked the bind they developed.
“I got the call and one of the most important things, he was like, ‘so, would you sign on early signing day?’” Moss said. “When I got the offer on Dec. 6, he was like, ‘would you...
