Chris Moody hopes to official

McDonough (Ga.) Henry County quarterback Chris Moody has put up some staggering numbers this season. In the opening round of the state playoffs, the dual-threat rushed for a school-record 264 yards and a touchdown while leading his team to a 34-24 victory.

The following week, Moody threw for 100 yards, ran for 68 and scored three total touchdowns in another postseason victory. Pretty impressive numbers, especially for an athlete that NC State likes at defensive back, where Moody also logs time on the prep level.

"Right now, I've got a handful of offers," the three-star prospect said. "The main ones would be Mississippi State, Memphis and NC State.

"Some schools like Memphis like me at quarterback, but most like me at DB or as an athlete. I'm a versatile athlete who works hard and will compete wherever the coaches put me. I just want to play in college, I'm open to playing wherever."

Defensive backs coach Mike Reed is leading the charge for NC State on Moody, who checks in at 6-foot-1, 205-pounds.

"They came in the spring time and he saw me, then he came back a couple of weeks ago," Moody remembered. "I don't really know a lot about NC State, he told me to call him so we can schedule a visit to get up there and check it out. I want to take an official visit."

The senior, who ranks as the No. 22 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and the No. 63 player in the state of Georgia, mentioned that he would like to take all five of his official visits after the season is over. In addition to a stop he Raleigh, he would like to see Mississippi State, TCU and Cincinnati; he already has a visit scheduled for Memphis on Jan. 21.

When asked if he had any favorites, Moody mentioned that he and one of his former teammates, Stephon Brown, who is currently playing at a prep school in Atlanta, have talked about playing together at the next level. Memphis is recruiting both prospects and Moody mentioned, "if we can get this thing going, we're going to try to commit together."
