Moss watching stories unfold

Avery Moss took his official visit to Arizona State two weekends ago for the Arizona matchup and the Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol defensive end loved the atmosphere but with the coaching upheaval there he's not too sure where he stands with the Sun Devils.
"It was definitely an electric atmosphere," Moss said. "I took my official visit there that weekend so I got to meet the players and I got to meet the coaches and get to know them a little better. It was definitely a good weekend to see everything.
"I'm watching (the coaching situation) a lot. That's one of those things I didn't really think about until people started talking about it. You just hope for the best and see how everything plays out. It will definitely be something that influences my decision."
Arizona was one of the early favorites for Moss, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound prospect, but after the Wildcats fired Mike Stoops the three-star recruit took a step back to see what would unfold there.
With Rich Rodriguez being hired recently, Moss said he'll take another look at Arizona moving forward.
Moss, along with five-star teammate Andrus Peat, visited Nebraska over Thanksgiving and he is planning to be at Purdue this weekend.
He said keeping a close eye on the situations at Arizona State and Arizona and possibly taking a visit to Washington could also happen before he makes his decision.
Arizona State was considered one of the favorites for Moss after his official visit but now with the coaching change the Corona Del Sol standout might just take his time to see how things come together at a few different places. rates Moss as the No. 33 strong-side defensive end in the 2012 class and the No. 12 prospect in the Arizona state rankings.
