One of best cover corners in Georgia is taking in what Bobby Petrino and his Arkansas program have to offer this week.
Buford High cornerback C.J. Moore (5-9, 160, 4.43) arrived late Saturday after a couple of flight delays and is anxious to show his talent off at the Razorback camp, which began Sunday night and runs through Tuesday morning.
"Arkansas is one of my top schools and I really like the program and the University," Moore said. "I really like Arkansas so far. I really like the weather, the campus looks nice and the football field looks nice."
Moore, who is being recruited by Razorback assistant Steve Caldwell, is on a whirlwind camp tour that will see him take in Arkansas, Clemson, Oregon and Penn State the next couple of weeks.
He has fours offers already from Wake Forest, Air Force, Nay and Memphis and several schools showing interest including the aforementioned four along with Arkansas, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Duke.
"There are a lot of SEC and ACC schools," said Moore, whose dad Christopher is along for the camp and will join him at Clemson on Wednesday, Oregon this weekend and then Penn State.
Moore's aunt is three-time Olympic gold medalist Gail Devers, his mom Monica ran track at UCLA and his dad and uncle Mike Phillips both played college football.
Moore, who won the Georgia state 100 meters this spring, had 48 tackles and seven picks last season while taking one back to the house.
"My strengths are definitely my speed and my ball skills," Moore said. "What I am working on now is to try and get more physical and get my weight up."
Moore, who played for a school that has won four straight state football titles, noted that he has a 3.4 grade point average and academics will be a factor in his decision.
"Education and location," Moore said. "Just right now I am going to go to camps this summer and I will base it off that, which visits to take. From that I will make a decision when I think I have the best offers I am going to get."
