Cavs welcome lighter, stronger Moses to camp

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) -

In August of 2010, Morgan Moses entered the UVA football program as a freshman at 355 pounds.  Two summers later, Moses returns for his junior season, lighter, quicker and stronger.

Moses is entering preseason camp at 323 pounds.  He says a strict diet and hard work in the weight room and conditioning led to the loss, most of which came during this past offseason.  Head coach Mike London says the Meadowbrook product is as strong as he's ever been and is doing what is necessary to make him attractive to NFL teams.

The former Monarch enters 2012 with high expectations.  He is on the preseason watch lists for both the Outland Trophy and the Lombardi Trophy, and is a Phil Steele All ACC first team member, and preseason All-American fourth team.  2011 saw Moses start all 13 games and serve as a valuable protector for quarterback Michael Rocco.

Moses is one of three returning starting offensive lineman.  He says the last two years have flown by and he's seen his role change, as he assumes more leadership status this season.

Moses and the Wahoos open up their preseason camp on Monday, and kick off their 2012 schedule on September 1 when they host Richmond.
