2022 Cathedral Catholic DE Jaxson Moi Talks About Cal Offer

January 4, 2021

Cal’s most recent 2022 offer extended was to 3 star 6-3/250 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego, CA) High School defensive end Jaxson Moi.

The junior defensive lineman is a versatile player who can play inside or out.

“I’d say I’m being recruited most as a d-end, 3-tech,” said Moi. “I’d probably bounce around the line a lot.”

The Cal offer was a welcome one for Moi, who’s an excellent student with a 4.2 gpa and offers from several Ivy’s, including Yale, Princeton and Dartmouth. The talented Junior makes the commute from Oceanside to San Diego daily to help assure he reaches the level of academic success he and his family value.

“It’s a big sacrifice my parents have to make so I’m very thankful to them,” said Moi. “My parents have always been on me about my school work. The mindset has always been, ‘No schoolwork, you can’t go out and play.’”

Cal defensive line coach Andrew Browning has been his point of contact with the Bears so far.

“Coach Browning’s a great dude,” said Moi. “I always enjoy our conversations. I’m just really excited about the future of Cal football. So excited to build the potential with them.

“I like how we talked on the phone several times before they offered me. It’s great that they want to build a relationship before offering me, trying to get to know me as a person. I really appreciated that.”

On the field, Moi brings the type of energy that’s infectious to his teammates.

“I’d describe myself as a high-motor guy, who’s always going to get after the ball,” said Moi. “I’d say I’m pretty advanced technique-wise. I show a lot of heart. I’m just a guy who’s not going to be selfish. I’m a team player. I’d say I’m pretty vocal on the field. I’m really loud guy on the field. I’m a really high-energy dude and I let it be known.”

Though it’s still early, Moi knows what he’s looking for in his future program.

“I’m looking for a school that will have my best interest at heart,” said Moi. “Somewhere I’ll hopefully be able to play soon. Of course, I’m always willing to compete. Honestly, just a school that will make me better than when I came in.”

Besides the Ivy League programs noted, Moi has offers from Maryland, Arizona, Hawaii and more.
