The University of Maine is getting an impressive wide receiver with a last name to back him.
On Thursday, Montigo Moss, the youngest son of NFL Hall of Famer and former Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss, announced his verbal commitment to the University of Maine. A wide receiver out of Fork Union Military Academy (Virginia), Moss caught 40 passes for 1,041 yards and 14 touchdowns his senior season.
He is expected to sign his National Letter of Intent during the national signing period, which starts on Wednesday.

Montigo will be the latest Moss child to play collegiate athletics. His older brother, Thaddeus, played tight end at LSU and has recently declared for the 2020 NFL Draft. During his junior season, he broke the school’s single-season records for a tight end with 42 receptions for 534 yards. He then went on to catch five passes for 36 yards and scored two touchdowns in LSU’s epic 42-25 win over Clemson in the national championship game in January.
Randy Moss’s daughter, Sydney, was a standout basketball player at Thomas More University. During her sophomore season, she led the Saints to an NCAA Division III national championship, won all three national player of the year awards, and broke the NCAA DIII record for points in a game (63). Her junior year, she led her team to another national championship, breaking the NCAA’s all-division scoring record by scoring 197 points in six games.
She is currently an assistant basketball coach at St.Thomas University.
