Moore keeps options open

Tatum, Texas athlete Darnius Moore has only taken one official visit, but he doesn't have a big plan for his next trips.
The 6-foot, 175-pound Moore has been playing both ways for his Tatum team who will enter the playoffs this Thursday. As Moore says it, they're "ready for another run." With one official visit in the books to Oklahoma, Moore isn't getting too ahead of himself about any others just yet.
"I don't really have any other schools I'm planning on going to," Moore said. "I'm pretty open right now."
The Sooners definitely impressed Moore. While the talented two-way East Texas player says that he has no favorites or even a top five, he says that OU has moved up on his list of schools since the trip.
"They weren't on my early list at first because I didn't know much about them," Moore said. "Then I went up there and now they're right up there near the top. No one has been eliminated or anything yet though. I'm looking at everybody."
When asked who was recruiting him the hardest, Moore said that Nebraska, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M have been showing a lot of interest. He was also recently offered by Tennessee and enjoys talking with coach Trooper Taylor.
"He just tells me that he wants me to play for them," Moore said. "He said he'd like to have me on defense and special teams."
Playing both cornerback and receiver for Tatum, Moore has experience at both positions. However, he'd prefer to be an offensive playmaker.
"I like receiver because you have the ability to do something with the ball in your hands," he said. "That's what I'd like to play."
