Unlike many other prospects, Mesquite (Texas) Horn defensive tackle Cordero Moore decided to skip summer camps and unofficial visits this summer. Instead, he’s focused on helping his team improve and helping himself improve for his upcoming senior season.
“That’s been the No. 1 focus,” Moore, who is 6-foot-4 and 264 pounds, said. “I’ve just been working out. The two things that I’ve been working on the most are my speed and my conditioning.”
Not a fun combination, because Moore said both involve a ton of running.
“I’ve been running sprints and we have a coach that has put us on a distance workout program, too,” Moore said. “Distance is easy, because you can just get a pace going. It’s the sprints that wear me out, but I know that football is a game where you have to do a bunch of sprints on every play.”
Speaking of playing, Moore said lately he has not put too much thought into the recruiting process, but two teams still stand above the rest – Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
“They’re still my top two,” Moore said. “I don’t know, I just have a good feeling about both school. I want to get up to see Oklahoma State some time this summer, and then I would definitely see Oklahoma, too. I need to talk to my parents about taking a trip. I like how aggressive Oklahoma's defense is, and just love the way they play. It's a defense I feel like I could fit well in. Oklahoma State is the same way with their defensive tackles, too.”
Moore also has offers from Arizona, Baylor, Missouri, Texas A&M and Texas Tech.
“I really don’t know when I plan on having a decision,” he said. “That’s just something I’m not too focused on now. I’m too worried about getting in better shape.”
