Beavercreek, Ohio linebacker Airius Moore already has a good-sized offer list, but new teams continue to show interest. Rutgers is one of the more recent to reach out to the three-star prospect.
"One of their graduate assistants reached out to me and asked if I was interested in Rutgers," Moore said. "I would definitely have an interest in them. I know it's not that far away from New York and Ray Rice went there, so I know a little bit about them."
Other schools have been slowly increasing the interest in Moore this summer. A camp visit with USC in June sparked interest from the Trojans coaching staff that continues to persist.
"I talk to [USC assistant] Coach [Mike] Ekeler," Moore said. "He is definitely still talking in my ear that they are still interested."
The 6-foot, 216-pound Moore holds a number of MAC offers as well as ones from Big Ten programs Indiana and Illinois. He was scheduled to visit Indiana on Sunday.
"I did not get a chance to do that," Moore updated. "My dad had different plans, so I will probably get up there for a practice on the 18th [of August]."
Moore plans to take his recruitment into the fall, and is looking at scheduling official visits before making a final decision.
"I will probably visit Indiana, Marshall and a few other schools, but I haven't set up anything yet," he said.
This week, though, Moore's focus turns toward his senior season and leading his Beavercreek High team.
"We actually start [Monday] at 5:30 in the morning," he said. "I kind of want to show some people what I can do. I worked real hard this summer on my speed, trying to be a complete player. We'll see if I can get first team all-Ohio. I got second team last year."
