"Well, USC was at practice yesterday and coach Ken Norton Jr. said he was going to go back to talk to the head coach about an offer for Joe," Moss said. "Everybody has been looking at him and just about everybody has offered him."
Previous scholarship offers include Alabama, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, and Wisconsin to name a few.
Moss says that aside from his special athletic ability, Ibiloye remains humble and continues to show his leadership ability.
"He is a great kid, very humble, and has really stepped up this spring," Moss said. "He's just matured into a great player. With all the older guys that were back there and that have come through here, he knows that's his secondary back there."
Moss says that no school has been eliminated from the race, but Ibiloye could be narrowing his list after the spring or during the summer.
Schools that the 6-foot-3, 197-pounder has brought up to his coach most regularly include Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, and Texas A&M. Texas is another school that continues to show interest.
"All I've asked of Joe is to have an opportunity to visit all the schools that he plans to consider," Moss said. "He's not eliminated going far away. He's just got to find a way that he and his family can get out and visit some schools before he decides."
Other prospects collecting offers in the 2008 class includes receiver Steven Osborne and cornerback Josh Rolfe.
"Utah has offered Steven and several other schools have told me that once they got back to school, they would offer," Moss said. "Josh Rolfe has been offered by New Mexico State and his traffic has really picked up. It's been busy around here."
