ASU in top group for Moore

Official visits likely to dictate what happens in recruitment of a Louisiana hybrid player who has Arizona State in his Top-3

Louisiana linebacker Kevin Moore said in May he was interested in Arizona State because of the defense’s hybrid Spur position.

He said this week that he is still has an interest in the Sun Devils, wants to make official trip to Tempe and the coaching staff continues to give him attention.

“They’re not (recruiting me) the hardest, but they’re up there,” Moore said.

Moore went on to say the school showing me the most attention right now is Texas Tech.

“I have a great relationship with all the (Tech) coaches and I mean they hit me up daily and it’s not just my recruiters,” Moore said. “(It’s) the whole coaching staff most of the time.”

Moore is a 3-star, 5-foot-11, 188 pound linebacker. He plays for Acadiana High School in Lafayette, La. where he is the No. 2 outside linebacker prospect in the state and No. 78 nationally.

Moore said he has been speaking regularly with ASU’s Louisiana liaison offensive coordinator Mike Norvell, and that they have a good established relationship.

At this point in the summer, he said he does not have any more unofficials planned. But, he is starting to think about choosing his official visits.

Right now, Moore said he would like to visit Arizona State and Texas Tech for sure, and expressed interest in seeing Oklahoma State as well.

He said he has not been on either (ASU or Texas Tech) campus yet. But, he met the Texas Tech staff when he attended a Red Raiders’ satellite camp.

At this stage in his recruitment, Moore said he is focusing on his relationships with his potential future coaches.

“First of all I need someone that actually cares which is kind of hard to tell,” Moore said. “But, (I want) someone that actually cares and someone that wants me. Someone that wants make me a better person and player.”

Moore said from there from phone conversations, he likes his first impressions of Norvell.

“I personally think he’s a cool coach,” Moore said. “I like him. Like I said, every time we talk, we have a good conversation.”

Moore said the next major step in his recruitment will be those official visits. He said he hopes schools like ASU and Texas Tech continue to contact him.

“Going forward, I like both schools,” Moore said. “I’m trying to get up to Lubbock and I’m trying to get up to Arizona see how it’s looking and if I like it, you know, who knows.”

He said he believes his decision will become clearer after he takes his official visits.

“I got three places I’m trying to get to right now and that’s those two and Oklahoma State,” Moore said. “I’m not just going to visit one and jump the gun. I want to visit all three.”

Moore said at the end of June he might release a top five or top 10. He said ASU, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State are near the top of the list.
