It's hard to be a more sure commitment than Houston Jersey Village offensive guard Steve Moore. Moore is a three-star prospect who has been committed to the University of Texas since practically the recruiting process began for the class of 2006.
Moore, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive lineman, had gathered offers up from some other universities and even taken a few visits. However, the second he walked around the football facilities, he knew he wanted to be a Longhorn. Since then, an interesting moment happened when the No. 30 rated offensive guard in the country had a chance to meet Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis in the high school office this past week.
According to Moore, nothing was going to shake him away from his commitment.
"Well, I'm not sure if they ever 'officially' offered me, but coach Weis was there and he talked to me for a little bit," Moore said. "I just told him I'm going to Texas and that it's the place for me. In fact, we didn't talk that much about recruiting. We just talked football in general.
"There was no interest on my part with anything other than for Texas."
In fact, since taking his official visit to UT on Dec. 9 with nearly the entire class on hand for the annual banquet weekend, he understands just how special this group of players is already.
Moore is already building those relationships.
"I've pretty much met everyone," Moore said of his new Longhorn mates. "Apparently, there pretty good football players. I think we're going to be a really good class and do something special. I'm just working hard and even though I'm pretty sure I'll redshirt, I want to make progress and possibly try to make as big of an impact as I can."
