Miller Moss is back at Alemany High, but don’t get too excited Warrior fans, he won’t be playing football.

Moss transferred back to Alemany to finish the distance learning fall semester. The four-star quarterback – committed to USC – transferred to Santa Ana Mater Dei in June in pursuit of top-notch high school football competition and a mythical national championship, but when CIF announced the season would be postponed to start in January he knew his high school career was over.

His plan to graduate in December and head to spring camp was always the goal.

“Alemany’s schedule allows me to also take courses at Santa Monica Community College, which will help me graduate from USC in three years from the time I get there in the spring,” Moss said. “Hopefully I can go back in June and graduate (high school) with my classmates.”

Despite the CIF’s sports calendar, which has Jan. 8 earmarked as Week 1, Moss knows high school football is no guarantee. He did contemplate sticking around for a senior season in the spring, but not for long.

“Things are so fluid with the virus, a high school football season is not guaranteed,” Moss said. “My spot at USC is promised to me. I picked the option that’s guaranteed.”

The fate of the PAC-12 football season is hanging in the balance, too. But Moss know he can get a jump start on things like class and the Trojan playbook.

Moss said there was brief thought to potentially play football in Arizona and live with his uncle, but it was nothing more than that: a brief thought.

“It came up, but I’ve played a lot of high school football,” said Moss. “I didn’t feel a move out of state to play one more season was practical.”

When Moss made the decision to transfer to Mater Dei, he said he drove from his home in West L.A. to Antelope Valley to tell teammates Kevin Green Jr. and Jaylin Smith – a pair of his closest friends.

“It was not an easy decision. Those were really hard conversations,” Moss said. “I have no regrets, though, I don’t think twice about it.”

Moss is working out six days a week in Orange County where the health guidelines are different and allow for more in-depth training. He’s been working on throwing, speed and strength. According to 247Sports.com, Moss is the No. 7 overall pro-style quarterback in the country.
