Thaddeus Moss, the son of NFL legend Randy Moss, is no longer taking an official visit to the UGA-Alabama game this weekend.
The 3-star tight end from Charlotte, N.C., shared his change of plans through his Twitter account Thursday night. He sent out a similar tweet earlier this week announcing he would be at UGA this weekend on his official visit.
Mallard Creek coach Mike Palmieri was unable to return a phone call seeking comment.
Moss is rated as the nation’s No. 19 tight end. That position is rather crowded at UGA with the commitment of Garrett Walston and the pursuit of 5-star Isaac Nauta out of Florida’s IMG Academy. Could UGA sign up to three tight ends? That seems unlikely given the way the numbers shake out across the rest of the board.
Nauta is rated as the nation’s No. 1 tight end. He will be making his official visit to UGA this week for the Alabama game. UGA is also highly interested in 4-star Jacob Mathis of Tampa. He’s rated as the nation’s No. 9 tight end for 2016.
The 247sports Crystal Ball currently projects Moss to sign with West Virginia at 67 percent. UGA follows with 33 percent.
I will not be in Georgia this weekend for an official
