"Notre Dame is a very good program," Moore said. "I know they are kind of down right now, but they are going in the right direction."
"I'm still 100 percent USC," Moore said. "USC is a great program and it is close to home."
"USC has a great tradition and I like everything about USC," Moore said. "I'm not taking any other visits that I know of at this time."
Moore and his Narbonne teammates beat their league rival Los Angeles (Calif.) Washington in the opening round of the playoffs, 28-9 and the future Trojan was a catalyst in his team's victory by picking off two passes that led directly to two touchdowns.
Narbonne will face another tough challenge this Wednesday Evening when they take on the defending two-time city champs, Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham at Narbonne.
