Colorado St. second to offer 2014 CB Elijah Moody

Colorado State was impressed enough with class of 2014 cornerback Elijah Moody, they paid him a personal visit at his high school Long Beach Poly and offered him in person on Monday afternoon.

“It’s a great feeling knowing all that hard work and all those days of doing extra stuff paid off,” Moody said about the offer. “It kind of reminds you everything you did was for a purpose.”

Around 1 p.m. on Monday, Moody went to his academic counselor Monica Kim’s office and found a member of the Rams’ coaching staff speaking with her. After talking to the coach for a couple minutes about academics, he offered him a scholarship.

Kim has been an integral part of Moody and his teammates’ recruiting process.

“She’s everything, she’s amazing,” Moody said about Kim. “She’s our academic counselor, our tutor and she’s helping out with our recruiting.”

The Rams want him as a defensive back, but did not discuss if he would play safety or cornerback, which Moody is open to both.

Last season the 6-foot, 180-pound defensive back played at Lakewood High School, but has transferred to Long Beach Poly and couldn’t be more excited to take the field with his new teammates.

“I honestly think we’re going to have the best defense in the state this year,” Moody boldly stated. “We have a lot of starters returning, our DB core looks great and the offense is doing just as well.”

This off-season Moody plans on attending both Boise State and Utah’s football camps and has left the option open for possibly more team camps.

In addition to taking care of business on the field, Moody has stayed on top of his grades, thanks in large part to his father’s policy.

“If you grades aren’t in order, you can’t play sports—Cs are not allowed, it has to be all As and Bs,” Elijah said.
