Less than a week before signing day, De La Salle linebacker D.J. Moffitt gave an oral commitment to play at UNLV.
Moffitt (6-foot-2, 205 pounds) will enroll at UNLV in January of 2014 unless a fall scholarship opens up. He said he could use the fall to get bigger, strong and faster, and isn’t bothered by possibly having to wait to join the team.
“After my official visit, I just felt like it was the right decision,” Moffitt said. “I like the staff and what they have going on there.”
Rated as a three-star prospect by Scout and Rivals, Moffitt is the fourth member of the De La Salle defense to commit to a Division I school. Michael Hutchings (USC), Austin Hooper (Stanford) and Victor Egu (Yale) will also ink their letters of intent next week.
Moffitt, who had offers from Arizona, Colorado, Washington State and Nevada among others, said UNLV was his only official visit.
