Four-star edge rusher Cyrus Moss is taking some time with his family and still seems ready to announce his college destination on January 8 at the Army All-American Bowl. Moss visited the Miami football program earlier this month and was quoted by Blair Angulo of 247 Sports discussing his visit to Coral Gables.

Moss attends Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas. Miami football alums, safety Bubba Bolden, tight end Brevin Jordan and quarterback Tate Martell all became stars at Bishop Gorman. Bolden and Jordan have been promoting Miami to Moss on their social media accounts. Miami is one of five programs Moss is considering.

Moss posted to his social media accounts last week that Alabama, Arizona State, Miami, Oregon and USC are his five finalists. According to his 247 Sports profile, Arizona State, Miami and USC are the frontrunners. Miami only entered the recruitment for Moss when Mario Cristobal was hired two weeks ago.

The Hurricanes are hoping to add Moss to four-star Fort Lauderdale Dillard star Nyjalik Kelly. Cristobal has made it a point of how important controlling the line of scrimmage offensive and defensive is, especially to him. Edge rushers are a critical part of modern football. Moss discussed what makes Miami appealing.

"“Miami was a really good time last weekend and I thought it was super insightful…I got to see more of what coach Mario Cristobal is trying to build down there. He had a clear vision of what that program is going to look like and it definitely gave me a lot more to consider.They showed me all the benefits of the program and the university."

Moss is the 63rd ranked player, sixth edge rusher and second in Nevada in the Class of 2020 according to the 247 composite rankings. Miami would move up to 36th if Moss signs with them. Consensus four-star wide receiver Kevin Coleman is also planning on announcing his destination at the Army All-American Bowl.

If Miami receives a National Letter of Intent from Coleman as projected and Moss, the Hurricanes would move up from 48th to 21st in the 2022 recruiting rankings. Mario Cristobal and the Miami football staff have quickly made an impact. Coleman and Moss would be huge additions to the 2022 Miami class.
