Josh Moore's recruitment has undergone one of those surges that seem to happen for a handful of prospects at this time of year. The Olathe (Kan.) North tight end's offer list has grown to nine. Auburn made things official early in the day on Wednesday, and Florida State followed suit just a few hours later.
It's been that kind of start to spring for Moore, whose stock seems to be soaring in recent weeks. And while he admits he still has plenty to learn about Auburn, things with the Seminoles are off to a quick start.
"Florida State came and saw me lift and gave me the offer," Moore said. "I knew they were looking at me, but I didn't expect the offer today, though. I think I'm going down there to try to visit sometime in the summer."
Moore also plans to visit Auburn this summer at an undetermined, but there are other trips on is schedule that are more set in stone. With his recruitment still gaining momentum, there's plenty out there for Moore to inspect. And he intends to do just that in short order.
"I'm visiting Ohio State on June 1," he said. "Then, I'll be at Oklahoma in a couple weeks and Oklahoma State sometime in May."
The recent jolt in recruiting attention has distorted Moore's timetable a bit. The 6-foot-5 tight end once planned to make a summer commitment. And while that remains a possibility, an early decision seems less certain than it did a few weeks ago.
"It's going to be before or after my season," Moore said. "Maybe this summer, but, if not this summer, after the season. I won't do it during the season, so I am going to try for before, though."
As a junior at Olathe North, Moore helped his team to an 8-4 record and a pair of wins in the Kansas state tournament.
