T.J. Moe reflects on Iowa St. visit

After logging two offers before Signing Day this past February, O'Fallon (Mo.) Fort Zumwalt West athlete T.J. Moe has hit a lull in the recruiting process. The 6-foot-0, 185-pound prospect has been able to get out and make junior day and spring practice visits to several schools including Iowa State last month.

"Iowa State, I went up there for their junior day, that was about three weeks ago," said Moe. "I went up with Keith Langtry from (Kansas City) Rockhurst. Montee Ball (Wentzville, Mo., running back] was up there too and I guess Montee picked up an offer from them a couple weeks back.

"It was cool. They showed us a lot of different things about what they do with their football players and all the different academic stuff they do," added Moe. "The thing that really stood out about them is their dorms. Their dorms is a two-bedroom suite and you can fit 2-4 players in there. I've been up and seen other schools' and they've got real good housing for players."

As a junior, Moe was known mostly for his play at the quarterback position where he rushed for 1,500 yards and scored 25 touchdowns and threw for 2,300 yards and 19 touchdowns. Defensive back is also an option for Moe at the college level, however, and his versatility has attracted the Iowa State staff's attention.

Moe picked up an early offer from Missouri that was followed up by an offer from Kansas in early February.
