Whatever the South Carolina Gamecock coaches said to Chris Moody on Thursday, it worked.
Moody, a defensive back from Henry County High School, confirmed to the AJC on Friday afternoon that he was leaving within the hour for a last-minute official visit to South Carolina. Moody declined further comment.
It’s a surprise because Moody committed to Vanderbilt after his official visit there last weekend.
However, South Carolina hasn’t given up on the idea of flipping Moody and dispatched defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward to his high school on Thursday. After all, before Moody committed to Vanderbilt, South Carolina was considered the school to beat.
“I have no idea what Coach Ward said to Chris but it was good enough to talk him into visiting South Carolina this weekend,” Henry County coach Mike Rozier said. “He’s leaving around noon to go over there.”
Moody is being recruited by both Vanderbilt and South Carolina to play DB, although the Commodores have toyed with the idea of letting Moody play some “Wildcat QB” – which Moody really likes. He was one of the Atlanta area’s top quarterbacks this past season at Henry County.
