GA DE Says It Will Be Clemson

This rising star from Kingsland, Ga, hasn't pulled the trigger on a verbal commitment just yet, but there is little doubt about his destination. CUTigers.com has all the details in this recruiting update.

Interest is quickly growing 6-4, 260 pound defensive end prospect Rennie Moore.

"I have offers from Clemson and Florida State right now. Georgia is about to get into the game as well as Georgia Tech. I am also hearing from Alabama, LSU, Virginia, Michigan State, South Carolina and Florida," Moore told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

When asked if he has any leaders Moore responded, "Right now it is Florida State and Clemson, but Clemson has the lead right now."

When asked further about that lead, Moore revealed that he is on the verge of making a verbal commitment.

"Actually with the whole commitment thing to be honest I am thinking it will be Clemson. Most likely I am going to end up at Clemson," he said. "I haven't been up there and committed yet, but I have talked with my dad. He and I have agreed that Clemson is the right place. That is where I want to be."

Rennie and his father will make the trip to Clemson over the next few weeks. "I am going to take a visit to Clemson in the next few weeks. I want to see how the school looks. It will be me and my pops on the visit," he said.

A commitment to the Tigers should come during the visit to Tiger Town. "Probably when I go up on the visit I will go ahead and do the commitment thing," Moore added.

What does the Camden County standout like about the Tigers?

"Well position-wise I like that I could play the bandit, outside linebacker or defensive end," he responded. "I want to play defensive end. They like my size and they are going to use it. I think I have a great chance to go there and be a true freshman starter."

The small town atmosphere is also appealing to Moore. "I love it. It is in the country. That is what I am born and bread.

"My dad really likes them too. He is cool with my decision. He just wants me to make sure I get my education."

Is there a chance that he could change his mind about Clemson as interest from other schools increases? "I don't know. I talked to coach Vic. He talks to me a lot. I call him. The other schools are not showing the same interest. Clemson has been on me and showing me what I like," replied Moore.

What are the goals for the prize recruit's senior season? "First, I want to get the state championship. I want to make sure I become a leader. I think that is very important. My personal goals are to end up with ten to 15 sacks. I will also try to go for 70 or so tackles. I also want to get over the 500-yard mark catching," responded Moore.
