In a year where talent runs deep in one of the nation’s top recruiting states it is quite an accomplishment if you are ranked No. 1. The state of Georgia is exactly that and right now the man leading the pack for the honor of the top player in the Peach State is Warner Robins (Ga.) Houston County defensive end Kyle Moore.
“I’ve got offers from Vanderbilt, Alabama, Tennessee, Maryland, Duke and Georgia Tech now,” said Moore.
The freakish Moore stands at 6-foot-7, 255 pounds, runs a 4.75 40-yard dash, boasts a 310-pound bench press, has a 31-inch vertical jump and is qualified to boot.
“I’m still considering a lot of schools. I’m looking at pretty much everyone that has offered me, plus Georgia, Florida State and Miami.”
Even though he is consistently ran away from by opposing offenses, Moore still collected 89 tackles, 21 assists, 15 sacks, numerous pressures and recovered four fumbles.
“I went to Georgia for junior day and it went well. I really like coach Richt. I talked to him for a while. He was telling me about the direction the program was going and what kind of image they wanted their athletes to have.”
Moore stated that he would visit several schools over the summer and will attend the NIKE camp at Georgia Tech on May 8th.
“Notre Dame sent me a letter telling me that they wanted a copy of my transcripts. They said that if I qualify to get in there then they were going to offer. Ron Zook from Florida was here yesterday, but he didn’t offer me a scholarship yet.”
Moore was named first team all-middle Georgia, all-county, all-region and was named top defensive lineman on his team.
“I was supposed to go to Ole Miss with my teammate Nic Riley, but I had a track meet that day and I couldn’t go. I plan on visiting a lot of places this summer and I know Tennessee is going to be one of them for sure.”
