One of the fastest rising tight end prospects on the west coast is Ryan Moya (6-4, 235, 4.7) from El Dorado (Calif.) Oak Ridge. He just returned from the Cal Bear Camp where Moya absolutely blew the camp up.
Blew the camp up indeed; Moya was selected the Camp’s Offensive MVP and tight end MVP.
“I just returned from the four-day Cal camp,” Moya said. “I received an offer from Cal.”
“I was able to talk to Cal’s coaches and build relationships,” Moya said. “The camp all in all went very well.”
Cal isn’t the only school that has also come up with a recent offer. San Diego State has also come aboard with an offer.
Moya also has talked to USC and the Trojans are very interested in Moya playing a pass catching H-back or fullback.
“Right now I like both UCLA and Cal,” Moya said. “I like what the two staffs say about how they would use me.”
“Both schools have openings at tight end,” Moya said. “I would get a great opportunity to play as a freshman and both schools like to throw to their tight end.”
Moya is planning on attending UCLA’s football camp later this month.
Colorado and Oregon have also picked up their recruitment of Moya. Northwestern, Duke, Oregon State, Arizona, and ASU are still very much in the hunt for Moya’s services.
Moya is a clutch receiver who makes the big third down catch that moves the chains.
For the season of 2003, Moya had 39 receptions for 663 yards and eight touchdowns. He was selected all-conference, all-city and all-section for his junior year performance. His team was 12-1 and Section Champs last season.
In an earlier interview with Oak Ridge coach Chris Jones, he said, “Many people think that when you run and catch as well as Ryan you are just an oversized weak blocking wide receiver, Ryan with his blocking skills is the complete tight end.”
“Ryan has a great combination of size, speed and strength,” Jones said. “I think those three things are great assets for him as a tight end.”
“I think the greatest thing about Ryan is he plays tight end like a wide receiver,” Jones said. “He runs routes like one and he catches the ball like one.”
