Brandon Moore is a huge four-star prospect from Montgomery (Ala.) Carver High School. Moore, 6-5 and 313 pounds, could star on either side of the ball at the next level. This season he's played offensive tackle for the first time.
"I am playing well for it being my first year on the offensive line," Moore said. "I think I am becoming one of the best in the state. The transition to offense was new to me but it's still football. I think I adjusted pretty well We are averaging 49 points per game and we have a top five defense. We have not lost a game."
In terms of recruiting Moore has set up four official visits. He has lined up trips to Florida (12-12), Clemson, (1-9), Miami (1-16) and Alabama (1-23). The Tide get the last crack. Are they the team to beat?
"There's some pressure on me to stay home and I think I will likely go to Alabama. They are No. 1 right now but I am not worried about it. I will do what's best for me in the end. I want to pick a place where I feel comfortable and I want to sign with a successful program. Playing time will also be important and I want to go to a school where they have talent coming back. I want to win a National Championship."
Moore has been to see LSU/Auburn, South Carolina/Ole Miss and Ole Miss/Alabama this season. He's going back to Auburn this weekend for their home game against Georgia.
"I like Auburn too. I enjoyed my first visit there. They have a good atmosphere."
Carver is 11-0 and they play Briarwood in the second round of the playoffs this weekend.
