Long interview with Moody’s dad from the Michigan 247 site. He says a decision is coming soon and they have all the needed information. We can safely write him off.
*“I would say that they kind of came on early and late,” said Mr. Moody. “They reached out to us back maybe even late junior year, or sometime early this year. And I know Virginia is Virginia, so they’re always going to have some good stuff. I like the play style and I think Bennett is a good coach. That would definitely have been something that we would have considered had we felt the strong rapport early enough. But I think that they do have a lot of pieces that kind of put them in more of a back seat, if you will, to say, ‘yes, we like the school, but I do feel that the other two are probably more so in play being that Virginia did come along late.’” *
“I don’t feel like we got a chance to really establish the conversations that are necessary,” Mr. Moody later added. “Part of that is when you’re recruiting long enough, you can kind of get to a comfortable place to talk to folks and get a feel for who they are. It’d be harder to do that with Virginia at this point, which makes it a little more tough for them in the mix. But they are there. Moses and the coaches have been in some good communication. So, there’s something there that he likes enough to say if push comes to shove, that’d be somebody he’d consider.”
