If there had been no training changes in this recruitment cycle, Cyrus Moss’ recruitment could have taken a completely different path. One that will likely end up in the Pacific Northwest in Oregon.
But there have been big changes across the training scene in recent months and one of the biggest has been Mario Cristobal Leave the ducks to go home to Miami.
That played a big role for Moss, who made hurricanes over Oregon, USC and others on Saturday at the All-American Bowl.
This relationship was too much for the Pac-12 and other schools to overcome. The Las Vegas (Nevada) superstar Bishop Gorman had a hit with Cristobal during his time in Oregon and after a late visit to Miami prior to his early signing spell, the move had already been made: Moss was going to play with the Hurricanes.
In his relationship with Mario Cristobal
“Coach (Mario) Cristobal is an amazing guy, and he knows it,” Las Vegas defensive coordinator Chris Brown, Archbishop Gorman, told CaneSport. “Oregon saw him as the next Kayvon Thibodeaux, and wanted to put him as the next man to compete for Thibodeaux’s place. He really loved it, had that relationship with the coaches and embraced him, and they really thought he could excel in Oregon. He started falling in love with Oregon.”
what does that mean
Cristobal had tremendous success recruiting the western region but also nationally while in Oregon and he’s built connections across the country that he can benefit from now that he’s with hurricanes.
If Cristobal stays in Eugene, Miami will never have a chance of landing Moss. Now that Moss has trained hurricanes, he’s ended up there and there are other possibilities out of the West that could give MIami a look as well. The four-star is tall and slender and has a tremendous ability to cover the ground and play to his strengths. Whether he ends up playing in space or growing more into his body and putting his hand down and being rushed, Moss is an athletic model who can do a lot to defend Miami.
