Staying in touch

Clemson continues to be involved with this three-star defensive end from Maryland.

Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and defensive ends coach Marion Hobby have made separate trips to the Hyattsville, Md. school.

"A lot of coaches have been coming by," Moore recently told "Just right now, I'm just working out, stuff like that. I'm just talking to some coaches. School's about to end soon. That's about all I'm doing right now."

The No. 32 defensive end in the class of 2012 wasn't exactly sure when the Clemson coaches stopped by.

"Coach Hobby came up and I didn't get to see him. Coach Steele came up, and I got to say, ‘Hey.' to him," Moore said.

Steele and Hobby are both serving as Moore's primary recruiter to Clemson.

"I talk to him a little bit on Facebook. The last time I got to talk to coach Steele was when I was on the junior day down there," Moore said.

Hobby and Moore talk "once every two weeks, or once every week."

Moore estimated that Clemson is among the schools that are recruiting him the hardest.

He also said Florida, Virginia, Florida State, Ohio State, Auburn, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee are showing very heavy interest.

This summer, he could be hitting the road, though nothing has been nailed down.

"I might go down to see camps, just to walk around and see it, but I want to be able to make my decision by the summertime," Moore said.

Moore also visited Clemson for the Orange & White game two months ago. Top Stories
