L.J. Moore already has a few offers and has taken some unofficial visits so the 2013 safety from Fresno (Calif.) Central East already has a good idea what's out there and available for him.
So far, Arizona State, UNLV and Eastern Michigan have offered the 6-foot-1, 200-pound junior and he's receiving interest from Cal, Washington, USC, UCLA and some other Pac-12 schools.
"I'm pretty much all open still because I want to see how everything turns out and I want to see how recruiting goes before I start naming favorites," Moore said.

One of the best things Moore did this season was go on numerous unofficial visits to get a good feel for what the programs have to offer. He attended games at Cal, USC and UCLA and said going into this off-season he has a better feel for what's out there.
The USC-UCLA game was an especially memorable experience and the Trojans definitely made an impression on him.
"It was a crazy atmosphere," Moore said. "There were a whole lot of people and it seemed like it would be really fun to play in that stadium and that type of environment.
"They have all been good experiences. This is the beginning of recruiting for me so it was good to get out to some of the schools and see them play."
Moore shined last spring at the Big Man on Campus 7-on-7 Tournament in Southern California and he backed it up with a strong junior season.
He's planning to attend the combine that precedes the Marines game next month in Phoenix and then he's planning a busy off-season schedule as well.
Because Moore also plays basketball and runs track his entire schedule has not been settled but it's expected he'll be seen a lot leading into his senior season.
