Athletic Lineman Looking Forward To Visit

This Auburn verbal commitment from the Lone Star State talks about his trip to Auburn for an official visit this weekend.

Frisco, Tex.--For Auburn commitment Aaron Moore, an official visit for the LSU weekend is the icing on the proverbial cake of his decision to sign with the Tigers.

Choosing Auburn following a summer camp visit, Moore says several colleges such as Baylor, TCU and Texas A&M soon came through with scholarship offers, but as far as he is concerned it was too little too late.

"I'm solid," Moore tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I'm going with my team to watch an SMU game, but that's just because they are close by. I'm not taking any other official visits.

"We run the same offense as they (Auburn) do," he adds. "I feel comfortable running this offense. I already feel like I have an upper hand on the other kids coming in because I'll know what's going on. I have been looking at some stats and the way they play. That defensive tackle number 94 (Sen'Derrick Marks) is all over the place."

With his decision out of the way, Moore says it will allow him to concentrate on the weekend and getting a better feel for Auburn. One of the things he says he's looking for is check out the atmosphere on game day in and around the stadium.

"I actually ran into a lady the other night that kind of told me what to expect," Moore says about his first Auburn game. "I'm kind of hearing a lot about the atmosphere. I'm used to going to Big 12 games and watching like A&M (Texas A&M) play. I hear it's going to be a much different experience. I can't wait."

Playing defensive end in addition to his duties as an offensive tackle, the 6-5, 255 Moore says that he currently has three sacks in three games with over a dozen tackles. He's also caused a fumble that he recovered and ran in eight yards for a touchdown.

An athletic defender, Moore says right now the team is playing well on that side of the ball.

"I feel like I'm contributing a huge part to the team," he says. "The whole team overall is doing great. Our defense held Mesquite Poteet to a total of 68 yards in our last game. I had two sacks and six tackles. The team altogether did a tremendous job."

Playing with Kentucky commitment Ryan Mossakowski, Centennial is off to a good start following a 26-14 victory Friday night. That was the second win of the season for the Titans after a 71-20 demolishing of Denton in week one. The only loss came to McKinney Boyd in week two by the score of 35-28. Moore says at the moment the team is playing well and hoping for bigger and better things.

"We're doing great," Moore says. "We've actually made a huge comeback from last year so far. Right now we're 2-1 and we all feel confident about the team. We're all playing pretty good.

"We're beating teams and are confident in how we're playing, but we also understand we're not doing everything right," he adds. "When we start playing up to our full potential we're going to be a heck of a team."

Moore is one of six prospects scheduled to come in to Auburn for official visits this weekend.
