The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Moss originally committed to East Carolina in February but kept his options open. The Hokies offered in April and got his verbal commitment Friday night.
Moss, who also had an offer from Wake Forest, is ranked as a three-star recruit by both 247 Sports and Rivals. 247 Sports lists him as the No. 35 player in North Carolina.
As a junior at Northeastern High, Moss had 107 tackles, eight TFLs and three sacks, earning all-conference honors.
He is the 12th commitment for the Hokies’ 2013 class and the second from North Carolina, joining quarterback/athlete Carlis Parker of Statesville. Commitments are non-binding until players fax in their letters of intent in February.
Defensive line coach Charley Wiles was Moss’ primary recruiter.
