College Football Recruiting: Can South Carolina Land Chris Moody?

The South Carolina Gamecocks are not done recruiting for the Class of 2012 as they are still pushing hard for the services of Chris Moody.

Moody (McDonough, Ga./Henry County) is a Vanderbilt commitment but he is not strong with that.

USC has been pursuing the 3-star athelete and recently got him to make an official visit to South Carolina this past weekend. Good thing too as the Gamecocks are squarely in the mix to sign him on Wednesday, which is national signing day.

By looking at reports surrounding his visit, the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder had a very good one as he met Coach Spurrier, Coach Lorenzo Ward and running back Marcus Lattimore. All three made a impact on him but the thing that was said that could get him to switch is that Coach Spurrier promised him a shot to be under center.  It will be in designed plays like the Wildcat but it is exactly what Moody wants in his college destination as he played quarterback, along with defense, in high school. 

So what does the LOHD crystal ball say...based on his experience on the official visit and the promise to get a shot under center then our outlook is he will sign with the Gamecocks.  Don't go bet the house on it but it looks real good that he will be wearing the garnet and black in 2012.  If we are wrong blame Moose.
