Tennessee extends offer to California QB Miller Moss who is coached by former Volunteer Casey Clausen
Tennessee does not currently hold a commitment from a quarterback prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle. To help the program land its next signal-caller, the Vols may ask a former Tennessee great to help Jeremy Pruitt and company do just that in the current recruiting cycle.
Leaving California for Rocky Top worked out very well for former Volunteer quarterback Casey Clausen and now Tennessee is hoping Miller Moss is interested in following his high school coach’s steps. That’s right, Clausen is Moss’s head coach at Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hills, California.
Clausen played for Tennessee from 2000-2003 and threw for 9,707 yards and 75 touchdowns during his time on Rocky Top. After a brief professional career in the NFL and CFL, Clausen has been serving as a high school head coach in California since 2013.
Now his 6-foot-2, 197-pound starting quarterback is garnering national attention as Moss enters his senior season as the nation’s No. 62 overall prospect and the No. 8 pro-style passer in the country, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
On Monday night, Moss shared the news that Tennessee had offered him a scholarship. Moss currently holds scholarship offers from programs ranging from Harvard and Yale in the Ivy League to SEC programs Auburn and LSU to local Los Angeles programs UCLA and USC.
Now he has the option of following his coach to Tennessee.
