UCLA pledge sets two huge visits

When safety prospect Rahim Moore (6-1, 180, 4.4) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey committed to UCLA back in March on what is now called "Sudden Saturday" it marked a day that indicated the Bruins were back on the map and could compete with anyone.
The uncomfortable caveat for Bruins fans at the time of his commitment was he made it clear that he would take some visits. Not just one or two, but he wants to take all five.
The talented safety has set two of his official visits in the fall.
"I'm going to visit Michigan the weekend they play Penn State (September 22nd)," Moore said. "It works out because we have a bye that week."
"I will also visit Georgia when they play Ole Miss (September 29th)," Moore said. "And I want to take an official visit to Florida, no doubt.
"Everybody is trying to recruit me to their school, but not by pressure," Moore said. "They're just trying to give a good vibe about their Universities.
"I wish I could dish off some of my offers that I won't be able to take to some of my deserving teammates who I love, work hard, are determined and have talent," Moore said. "I'm still committed to UCLA, but I still want to take visits."
Besides UCLA, Michigan, Georgia and Florida, Moore has offers from the likes of Auburn, Ohio State, Colorado, Nebraska, North Carolina, Arizona, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State and archrival USC.
Moore still has some business to do before he packs his bags to check out two of the nation's most prestigious programs in Michigan and Georgia, this coming Thursday, he will be running the 400-meter in the Los Angeles City Final meet.
Moore is the favorite in the event and hopes to run a 46.9 to 47.0.
"I'm going to run past the finish line like I'm going heaven," Moore said.
During the track season, Moore also ran the 200 with a best time of 21.89. He did run the 100 once and clocked a 10.9.
Moore was in attendance for the UCLA defense and came away very impressed with the way the defense performed.
"UCLA's defense at the scrimmage was phenomenal," Moore said. "They were running to the football and playing defense the way defense should be played. We will continue that type of play when we get there.
"They reminded me of the Chicago Bears."
Moore was recruited by UCLA to play safety, but he will also be looked at as a corner.
Moore is a two-time first-team all-city and all-league selection. He was also a first-team all-state underclass selection and for good measure is a Rivals.com preseason All-American.
Moore racked up 100 tackles and had seven picks as a junior.
