Big D1’s Liking Hazen DE Cody Moorhead

(Cody Moorehead 6-4 255 Sr. DE Hazen… One of Washington’s top prospects)

Since we started previewing prospects in the state of Washington for the 2013 recruiting class, one player that has enjoyed a rise in his status among several schools is Hazen DE/TE Cody Moorhead. At 6’4" and 255 pounds, the talented senior from the Renton area has plenty of talent to play on either side of the ball and with four offers to his name he’s got some really nice choices. A few Pac 12 schools have started to show some interest and one could be getting close to making him an offer…

"Things have been going really good this summer," Moorhead told Northwest Elite Index recently. "I still have my three offers — Army, Eastern Washington and Wyoming — and I think that Washington is getting really close to offering me.

"Coach (Tosh) Lupoi has been recruiting me pretty hard and I really like him a lot. He wants to see film from my first couple games this fall so he can evaluate how far I’ve come and I think if I really impress them, I have a great chance at getting an offer."

In addition to the Huskies, Moorhead has also been hearing quite a bit from Oregon State and Washington State.

"I camped at Washington State and Oregon State’s camp. I also was at the Northwest Elite Camp, and I got the Camp MVP at Wazzu so, like I said, I’ve had a pretty good summer."

This summer, in addition to showing schools what he could do on the football field, Moorhead has been hard at work in the weight room, recently posting a 320-pound bench press to go along with a 550-pound squat.

As a junior last season, Moorhead was a beast on the defensive side of the ball for the Highlanders, posting 42 tackles, 12 tackles-for-loss and 7.5 sackse earning First Team All-Conference while helping lead his team to a 7-3 record and the playoffs.
Most of the schools recruiting him like him on the defensive side of the ball, but some thing he could make a very good tight end and several think he might grow into an offensive lineman.

"Defense is what I like to do, but I’m fine with moving if it means I can play somewhere or if the coaches think I can help the team out more at a different spot," Moorhead said.

He told NEI he plans to take all of his visits and that he is "wide open" as far as where he ends up.

We will continue to keep track of things as Moorhead and his team get ready for their season. Cody Moorehead Highlights
