The word is out about 2014 offensive tackle Steven Moss. The Fredericksburg (Va.) Chancellor product already has a stack of 14 offers with a year and a half left in his high school career. Schools that have already sent an offer to Moss include Clemson, Penn State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
"I don't really have any favorites yet," said the 6-foot-4, 270-pound Moss. "I like all my schools the same. Pretty much every school is showing a lot of interest and I hear a lot from Virginia and Virginia Tech because they're instate. I'd say I have the best relationship with Coach (Bill) Lazor from UVA and Coach (Bud) Foster from Virginia Tech. They're good guys."
Moss has taken decided to take the recruiting process head on, already visiting South Carolina, Clemson, Ohio State, Virginia and Maryland

"I thought UVA was pretty cool. I've always had a pretty good relationship with them so I've been there a lot," he said. "In Fredericksburg I'm only an hour and a half from Charlottesville. I thought Maryland was pretty decent and I've had a good relationship with Coach (Tom) Brattan since they offered as well.
"I visited South Carolina and Clemson on the same trip," Moss explained. "Clemson is in the country and South Carolina is like a city. I liked South Carolina because it's like the city and I went to the Tennessee game while I was there. I thought it was pretty impressive how that defensive end Jadeveon Clowney saved the game for his team."
In that game, former five-star Rivals100 running back, Marcus Lattimore suffered a gruesome season ending knee injury.
"I felt bad for Marcus Lattimore too," he said. "I saw it (the injury) happen, we were right there. It looked like his leg turned into a noodle. Both teams showed great sportsmanship. It was pretty impressive how the other team could walk up and say 'sorry, you're a heck of a player.'"
It looks like Moss will have plenty of schools to choose from when it comes time for him to make a decision but how is he going to choose?
"I want my school to have the major I want, which I don't know yet," he said. "If the team is on the rise or they have a good history. Also the coaching staff is very important."
Moss is visiting Alabama on November 10th and Virginia Tech on November 24th.
