Thaddeus Moss is a long way from National Signing Day, but if the son of former NFL star Randy Moss sticks with his list, he won't be following his father to Marshall.
The younger Moss is regarded as one of the top tight end recruits in the nation, having garnered scholarship offers from schools in each of the Power Five conferences. And the four-star recruit from Charlotte Mallard Creek High took to Twitter on Friday to reveal his top six schools:
That's a wide-ranging list with a heavy Pac-12 flavor to it, which is unusual for an East Coast player. Wherever Moss goes, he'll sign in February and could be carrying the Moss name on a college field by the fall of 2016. At 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, he has plenty of size but shows the athleticism of a receiver:
The family pedigree suggests big things for Moss. His father averaged more than 1,000 receiving yards per season over a 14-year NFL career, and caught 156 touchdown passes while playing for five different teams.
Based on the above highlights, it's readily apparent that the younger Moss has plenty of his father's athletic ability.
