Four-star defensive back/wide receiver Rahim Moore (6-0, 190, 4.4) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey is one of the most coveted prospects on UCLA's talented, but at the moment, tenuous commitment list. Moore was one of 17 of UCLA's committed players that took his official visit to UCLA.
"I had great fun on my trip to UCLA," Moore said. "It was magnificent.
"When I was up there it felt like I was part of UCLA already," Moore said. "Jet Ski (Moore's good friend and high school teammate, Johnathan Franklin) was also on the trip and he said this is where we need to be.
"I told Jet Ski, you never lied," Moore said. "I asked him is this where he wants to get banged up in practice going against me? I told him he was going to get banged up going against me in practice and he just laughed.
"BP (Brian Price) was my host and he did good job," Moore said. "But we all hung out together. Aaron Hester, Jet Ski (Franklin), Antwon Moutra, Jerry Johnson, and Uona Kavienga. It was great.
"It was fun meeting (four-star quarterback) Nick Crissman," Moore said. "I'm going to hang out with him over the next weekend. He is a cool guy.
"The thing is everyone in this class gets along," Moore said. "We all love one another.
"We were all laughing and enjoying each other's company," Moore said. "We all want to come to UCLA and play. We think we can be special.
"Coach DeWayne Walker was real cool," Moore said. We were talking a lot and if we all come together to UCLA we can do something special.
"I hope they give Coach Walker the job," Moore said. "I think he would be excellent and help us get to where we want to go.
"Though I'm still committed to UCLA, I'm keeping my options open and I plan take all my trips," Moore said. "One school I could end up taking a trip to is Texas.
There is good reason why Moore is so highly in demand. He is a member of the Rivals.com Rivals100 for the class of 2008 landing as the nation's No. 71 prospect at any position.
Rivals.com ranks Moore at the country's No. 3 safety prospect and he was also selected to the Rivals.com California Top 100 team ending up as the Golden State's No. 7 prospect at any position.
