Avery Moss has been tempted to narrow down his list but the Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol defensive end is still receiving lots of interest and could get more offers so he's decided to hold things off a little longer.
Kansas State and Michigan State are the two latest schools to show interest in Moss, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound prospect who already has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, San Diego State, Stanford, Washington and Washington State.
"(The Kansas State coaches) said they think I'm one of the best players at my position and earlier this year a coach from Michigan State came to our school and I have talked to them and they've been sending me letters," Moss said.

"I want to narrow it down but I want to at least see who else offers. I want to get the maximum amount I can get before I really narrow it down."
Moss, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, was non-committal on favorites basically because he hasn't gotten to know every coaching staff yet.
Before he names a top list, Moss wants to learn more about the coaches and talk to them to get a feel for what they're all about.
"It's kind of hard because I want to get to know the coaches more," Moss said. "Besides location and education which are the big-time factors in where I'm going I think the coach's character, whether he's a good person, is something that really counts in where I want to go.
"It's hard because I've gotten to know some coaches but until I get to see everybody I can't really tell who's on top."
Rated as the No. 34 strong-side defensive end in the 2012 class and the No. 12 prospect in the Arizona state rankings by Rivals.com, Moss has been torn about whether committing early is the best idea.
At this point, he's still not sure which way to go.
"I'm talking to my dad and he doesn't want me to commit early," Moss said. "If I feel I've found the place that's right I might commit early because I don't want to wait until the last day."
