Broncos hope for Moore

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) is a familiar name to Boise State fans as his brother is currently the starting QB for the Broncos. Moore was in Boise this past weekend on an unofficial visit to watch Kellen's first start for the Broncos and he spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his visit and his thoughts on his recruitment up to this point...

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) is one of the main targets on the Boise State recruiting board. He is a three star prospect by Scout.com and is a proven winner as he and his teammates took home the 2A State Championship last season.

Moore (6'2.5, 197, 4.6) currently has three Pac-10 offers, (UW, WSU, and Stanford), to go along with his offer from Boise State, but he's narrowed that list a little as two schools stand out at this point. "Boise State and Washington State are tied right now," he said. "They are equal and I really like what both programs have to offer."

Kirby is being recruited by Coach (Justin) Wilcox. "Coach Wilcox is recruiting me," he said. "He's a real cool guy and has been a big help in the process. He has told me a lot about the program. I really appreciate that," he added.

The standout WR is also a big fan of Chris Petersen. "Coach Pete is a great guy as well. He doesn't want to pressure you. He's not in your face in the recruiting process. I like that."

Moore made the trip to Boise this past weekend for an unofficial visit and Bronco fans will be happy to know that it went great. "We got there around 2:30," he said. "We were able to meet some of the coaches and we watched the pre-game warmups," he added. Kirby was also able to meet a future Bronco. "I met Quaylon Ewing," he said. "He was real excited to be there."

Kirby was impressed with Kellen's performance against Idaho State. "I thought Kellen played great," he said. "I was more nervous than he was. There were a couple early mistakes. He looked real comfortable after that. I can't wait to see his next game."

Bronco fans can expect to see Moore in Boise for the Bowling Green game. "I'll be at the Bowling Green game too," he said. "We're bringing friends to the game. They are excited to see Kellen play," he added.

Overall, Kirby really likes knowing that the Broncos are the big ticket in town. "I love Boise," he said. "There is plenty to do there and they don't have any pro teams either. The Broncos are the big thing in town. It was funny going to restaurants and having fans asking my brother for his autograph," Moore added.

Kirby has always liked Washington State as well and many thought he had committed just a few weeks ago. "It was premature," he said. "I was thinking about committing. I just wasn't ready."

The relationship he established with Paul Wulff over the years has made WSU very appealing to him. "I started going to Coach Wulff's camp at Eastern in seventh grade," he said. "I like the new no-huddle offense he is bringing to WSU and it would be a great opportunity to play early."

Prosser, WA is definitely Cougar Country. "WSU has a bunch of fans around here," he said. "Many people from around here end up going to WSU."

Another school that is also staying in the mix is Washington. "I'm going on an unofficial visit to the BYU game this weekend," he said. "Kellen is coming with me since they don't have a game." Kirby spoke to Tyrone Willingham after the erroneous report that he'd committed to WSU and Coach Willingham invited him to the BYU game.

Washington is also appealing to Moore. "I think playing with Jake Locker would be real cool," he said. "I'm also friends with, (former Prosser teammate and current Huskie WR), Cody Bruns and it would be great to play with him as well."

Husky Stadium is considered one of the best in college football and Kirby certainly thinks so as well. "The most appealing thing about Washington is Husky Stadium," he said. That stadium can't be beat when it gets rocking," he added.

Moore and his teammates will take the field for the first time in 2008 this upcoming Friday. "We play Redmond this Friday," he said. "I want to get off to a good start and lead my team to a victory." The big goal for Prosser HS this season is simple. "We just want to get back to Tacoma," he said.

Boise State fans should keep their eye on this outstanding WR for the forseeable future. The Broncos are right there as one of his favorites and it certainly looks like they'll be staying in that position.
