Tight end Xavielle Moye (6-4, 215, 4.6) from Oak Grove (Calif.) Franklin sure passed the look test at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto last Saturday. Moye is a sleeper who just beginning to get noticed by D-I schools.
Moye is a neophyte to the game of football as he concentrated more on basketball until 2003. His family thought that he would make a fine football player so he decided to give it a try and he took to the game like a duck takes to water.
“I have only played football for one season,” Moye said. “I’m just beginning to learn game.’
Well Moye had a great beginning as he was selected all-league for his maiden season after catching 25 passes for 400 yards while averaging 16.0 yards per catch and scored eight touchdowns.
Moye’s NIKE numbers were 4.6 in the forty, 4.5 for the shuttle, benched 185-pounds 19 times and recorded a 30-inch vertical jump.
The scouting report on Moye is he’s a versatile tight end who runs well enough and he is often split out to give his team a match-up advantage. He is very athletic and has a pair of real sweet hands.
Moye has received phone calls this spring from Washington State and Fresno State this spring. He has also received recruiting action from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Boise State, Colorado State and San Diego State.
Moye’s best football is ahead of him and look for his stock to soar if he lives up to his potential his senior season.
Moye is a raw player who with a little seasoning will turn into a terrific football player.
