DT Moore now has five offers

Like most good defensive tackles, junior Herbert Moore of Memphis East (Tenn.) gets double-teamed practically every play.
And that, he said, is just how he likes it.
"I don't mind at all," Moore told on Tuesday. "My coach tells me to get as many men on me as I can. That's good for our linebackers."
Moore also is attracting plenty of attention off the field. Right now, he has offers from Clemson, Illinois, Mississippi, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. The Rebels were the latest to pull the trigger, doing so Saturday, according to the 6-feet-1, 320-pound Moore.
Who might be next?
"Maybe Mississippi State," Moore said. "[Assistant coach Angelo Mirando] and I have a good relationship. He wants me to come down there really bad for junior day on March 31."
Moore claims to have no leaders, but said two schools stand out at the moment.
"Clemson and North Carolina," he said. "They are both known for putting defensive linemen in the NFL. They both have great facilities. I haven't visited them, but I've seen them on TV. I'm going to go to their campuses this summer."
Thus far, Moore has visited Alabama and Mississippi. And he plans to hit both again soon.
"I'm going to Ole Miss on the 25th and I'm going to Alabama this Saturday," he said.
According to Moore, Alabama isn't "really [showing] much interest right now, but they're on their way. They've been sending me letters, and they're talking to my coach about me. I think something might come through."
In 2011, Moore recorded 30 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and three sacks in nine games. He missed time with an ankle injury.
