Tampa (Fla.) Middleton defensive line prospect Moses McCray is one of the top overall prospects in the Tampa Bay area for the Class of 2008. The 6-foot-3, 270-pounder recently performed well at the Tallahassee NIKE Camp, in part because of his commitment to a stringent offseason workout regimen.
McCray looked like he had made significant strides in the conditioning department between the time Rivals.com visited Middleton High School in March and last Sunday's camp.
"Basically, I've been doing every workout you can name," McCray said. "But the main thing is sit-ups. I do sit-ups after every work out and that helps with running and agility."

Florida, Rutgers, South Florida, Maryland, Pittsburgh and others have extended scholarship offers to McCray. The Gators held a commanding lead for some time, but now a new in-state program has gotten in the picture.
"I am kind of liking Florida State right now," he said. "It's a nice atmosphere. After they saw my film they started getting on me."
During his trip to Tallahassee for the NIKE Camp, McCray was impressed by Doak Campbell Stadium and the football facilities at FSU.
"It's pretty big and very nice," he said. "It's traditional."
Florida also remains near the top of the list, but for all intents and purposes, McCray is not nearing a decision.
"The recruiting process is going pretty well," he said. "I am liking it. I am letting it ride right now. I'm trying to check out most of the schools that are interested in me."
McCray was one of the better defensive linemen at the NIKE camp, which featured an excellent group of prospects at that position, including Florida commit Earl Okine of Gainesville and Class of 2009 standout Jacobbi McDaniel of Madison County.
"The camp was great," he said. "It was sort of a breeze because I got in great shape. All in all the camp was fun. It wasn't too hot like last time."
