The scholarship offers came early and often for South Garland (Texas) linebacker Austin Moss. The 6-foot-3, 208-pound prospect has been receiving offers since early in his junior season and those numbers have continued to climb since national signing day.

Wisconsin offered me and pretty soon after that Kansas State did. When football season started Louisville and Iowa State did. Then, the day of signing day, Virginia offered me and the next day Cincinnati offered me."

He has taken Junior Day visits to Texas A&M, Texas and Oklahoma and is looking at possibly taking one to Texas Tech in the near future.
