Moffitt intends on pursuing a degree in exercise science while at App State. Moffitt also has a connection to App State through her brother, Trevor Moffitt, who is an inside linebacker on the football team.

Why Moffitt Chose App State: “I chose App State for the culture and the opportunity to impact the culture.”

Elderkin on Moffitt: “We are really excited to welcome Rylan to our Appalachian State Women’s Basketball program. Rylan brings us a blue collar work ethic coupled with an innate ability to rebound the ball. She fits the needs of our program and will provide us depth and versatility around the rim. She has a passion for App State and we can’t wait to immerse her into our community.”

Moffitt joins true freshmen Lexi Bugajski, MaKenzie Drout, and Anaya Harris as part of the Mountaineers’ 2023-24 signing class.
