The Evergreen State is home to one of the West region's best defensive line prospects in Julious Moore (6-1, 270, 4.7) from Bellevue, Wash. There aren't many 270 pound players who can move like Moore. He has three offers on the table and there is reason to believe there will be more before the spring evaluation period is over.
Moore earned first-team all-county, first-team all-area and first-team all-league after racking up 65 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, eight sacks and three forced fumbles.
What makes his stats so impressive is the opposition went to extreme measures to try and handle him. He often faced double team and triple team attention while some schools even cut him.
"What teams don't understand is when they cut me it only makes even more mad and it makes me go that much harder," Moore said.
On the recruiting trail, Moore has three offers from UCLA, Washington and Washington State. He is getting recruiting interest from USC, Oregon State and Tennessee.
Moore is planning on attending UCLA's camp in June and he's not sure if he will participate in any other camps.
UCLA and Washington have a slight early lead over the schools at this time.
"I like UCLA and Washington because of their academics," Moore said. "I like how both schools take care of their athlete's academic needs with tutors and other support systems.
"I like both school's coaching staffs. They are young, but they are experienced and are player's coaches."
What is Moore looking for in a college?
"I want to attend a school with the right academic environment and a school with good coaches," Moore said. "I think I'm going to commit in August. I want to get recruiting out of the way so I can concentrate on senior season and not have any distractions."
