While checking out the USC Rising Stars Camp on Wednesday, one player that caught everyone's attention was Harbor City (Calif.) defensive back Byron Moore. The UCLA commit had a strong workout and the question everyone was asking was how solid is his pledge to the Bruins.
Moore, 6-1, 190 pounds turned in one of the top performances of the day. He was one of only three players to run a sub 4.6-40 clocking a 4.59 (SPARQ time) and then was equally impressive during the one on one and 7 on 7 drills.
Moore projects as a safety but showed excellent cover skills and may have been the top cover man for the day. He's very quick, has excellent feet, long arms and can really break on the ball.
The obvious question for Moore was why did he attend the camp when he has committed to the Trojans cross town rival?
"I just wanted to come out here and compete, that's all," Moore said. "I talked to one of the coaches and they said they were going to have some great players there so I wanted to come out and test myself against them.
"I had a good time, the camp was cool but I'm still solid with UCLA. I had fun and the coaches told me I had a great day today but I'm still solid with UCLA. If USC were to offer me, I would probably give it some thought but for now, I'm still a Bruin."
