2014 DL Moten Likes 'Canes

St. Thomas Aquinas is a factory for talent every year, and these next few years are no exception. 2014 DL Anthony Moten (6’4, 265) is next in the line of great defensive line prospects that have come from STA. Moten already holds offers from Miami, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest.

“Miami’s my number one choice, but Florida’s my number two. I really love both of those schools. I’m trying to get the Florida offer. I tried to get up to Friday Night Lights, but I couldn’t really get up there. Every time I go down to Miami, the coaching staff treats you like a family; a lot of people don’t do that. Miami wants you to come in and they treat you like a little brother,” he said.

Moten has already been in contact with Coach D’Onofrio, Coach Golden, and Coach Franklin. He says his family would prefer for him to stay close to home.
“Yeah, they do (want him to stay close). But they want whatever is my first choice and whatever is good for me that will help me get to the next level. I mostly grew up a Florida fan because my cousin, Mike Moten was out there, but Miami came in after the ’04 season I was just with them a lot,” Moten added.

One advantage Miami has is Moten’s relationship with STA alum and current ‘Cane freshman, Jelani Hamilton.

“I call him my big brother, he’s like a mentor of mine. He texted me asking if I was gonna commit and I told him no because my family wants my to wait the process out to take all my visits and wait till all my offers come in and stuff. He was alright with that, but he knows that I wanna be a ‘Cane,” said Moten.
Moten is versatile on the field, as he can play either end or tackle.

“At my school right now, they have me at both tackle and end. I used to be like 250, but now that I’m at 265 I lost a little bit of my speed, but I can still get around the edge so I can play both really. My power is my strength on the field because speed can only get you so far. I love my bull rush. The next thing is working with my hands. Coach Franklin can help me with that.”

The Raiders are preparing for their first game of the season against Columbus on August 31st.

“They say they have a lot of good running backs and their O-Linemen are supposed to be good.”

I like him... you can tell he's still developing physically, he still looks like a "baby". Should put up big numbers this year next to Bosa
 
seems like a good but not 'great' prospect. I personally would prefer to see us aim a bit higher in terms of natural talent/potential.

Based on what? His one year of high school playing experience?

based on my observations after watching his clips.
:ohlord: how can you determine potential from seeing some "clips".
For fucking sake we get it just stfu about it. This is a fucking recruiting board where we make opinions on recruits if your too stupid to understand that then I suggest finding a board that is more suitable for you. Maybe you and DBC can start your own board where you can't make an opinion off of highlight tapes.

Please do not discourage members from making observations. Thanks.

They can try, but trolling will get you a pretty swift exit from the football boards here. Everyone is welcome to troll the hell out of the WEZ.

Not trolling. How can you determine potential from some "clips". Simple question.

In a very loose and speculative way. When someone bases an opinion on minimal clips, most people on a message board figure it's just a shoot-from-the-hip observation.

If you're suggesting the users of this site stay quiet until they review a ton of game and practice film, we'll have a fairly boring and quiet message board.

You're free to tell the dude you think his comment is idiotic.
 
We will hear his name a lot more this year. It's kind of tough to get your name called with Jelani Hamilton and Joey Bosa on the same line lol
 
speaking of Bosa...
