Many times we are asked by people if participating at a NIKE Camp is worthwhile. Tight end Xavielle Moye (6-4, 215, 4.6) from Oak Grove (Calif.) Franklin has sure prospered since he showed up in Palo Alto last month.
Moye is a sleeper who just beginning to get noticed by D-I schools and his participation has paid dividends.
“Cal, Colorado State, Utah and Nevada all called me after the camp,” Moye said. “Nevada wants me to take an unofficial visit to their campus on July 30th.”
“All of the schools said pretty much the same thing,” Moye said. “They told me that I had a good showing at the camp, but that I was still raw.”
“They want to see me in action and watch some of my senior season,” Moye said. “I can’t wait for the season to start, but until then I will continue to work hard to make myself the best football player I can be.”
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, Boise State, and San Diego State.
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.
Moye explained his late start on the gridiron in an earlier interview with Rivals.com
“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’s best football is ahead of him and look for his stock to soar if he lives up to his potential his senior season.
