Philadelphia (Pa.) George Washington was in the recruiting limelight two years ago when defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd became one of the top players in the country. Now, the high school seems to have another top prospect, as 2013 defensive end Justin Moody recently picked up his first offer.
"Rutgers offered me," said Moody, who is 6-foot-3 and 264-pounds. "I like their defense and the way they try and get after the quarterback."
Aside from the Rutgers offer, Moody has let his coaching staff deal with the majority of his recruiting process to this point. He has yet to take a visit, but is in the process of scheduling a few camps and visits for the summer.
"I plan on going to a Temple camp and some more camps during the summer," said Moody. "But I'm not sure where yet."
Being from the same high school as Sharrif Floyd and also playing on the defensive line, there will obviously be comparisons between the two.
"Yes, I get them all the time, but I'm cool with it because I learned a lot from him and I look up to Sharrif," said Moody.
During his sophomore season Moody finished with nine sacks and one interception. He has been busy during the off-season trying to improve his game.
"Everything is good," said Moody. "I'm working out four days a week and I want to improve my speed."
