L.J. Moore said he had been talking to the Oklahoma coaching staff sporadically so he was happy and a little surprised when the Sooners offered him on Monday.
"I've been talking to them every once in a while and they came down here (Monday) and our football team worked out, they saw me and they ended up offering," Moore said.
"That's a big program. They're always doing great things and coach (Bob) Stoops is a great guy. I've been talking to him a little bit. It's great to know I'm getting recognized by big-time schools."
Moore, a 6-foot-1 170-pound four-star safety from Fresno (Calif.) Central East, has been picking up some major offers recently.
In total, Moore has Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Eastern Michigan, Fresno State, Georgia, Houston, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Pitt, Tulane, UCLA, UNLV and Washington on his offer list.
Since there are so many teams spread out across the country, Moore said he'll probably wait to make his commitment until he can take some official visits to check out the campuses.
"Those are big programs and I don't think I want to limit myself to the West Coast," Moore said. "Right now I'm just looking for the best fit for me and where I'd be most successful.
"It will be kind of hard to get out to those places on unofficial visits so I'm probably going to wait until I can take my officials. I'm fine with waiting that long. I want to go ahead and take my visits before I make my decision."
Moore, rated as the No. 17 safety and No. 223 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, said he definitely wanted to take an official trip to Notre Dame but with so many more offers coming in the Fresno Central East star wants to keep all his options open and not set anything up just yet.
