Moore ready to check out the Buffs

Dimitri Moore is nearing the end of his recruiting process. The three-star outside linebacker prospect wants to focus his attention on his final games with his Cedar Hill (Texas) High teammates. But before he makes the call, Moore has one more official visit left to take.

"I expect to see a good city, good vibe, good players, good coaches and a good game," Dimitri Moore said when asked about his upcoming trip to Boulder. "The coaches at Colorado all seem like really nice people. I got to meet them in person and was able to connect with them. It will be great to spend more time around them this weekend."

Moore previously took official visits to Kansas State, Minnesota and Vanderbilt. He said he liked the environment at Kansas State and the "coaches and area" at Minnesota and Vanderbilt.

He has the ability to take a fifth official trip, but Moore said "this trip to Colorado will likely be my last trip."

Hopefully I'll have a decision made by late October, early November,” he added. "I'm anxious to give my team all my focus."

Currently ranked among the nation's top 40 outside linebacker recruits, Moore is off to a good start as a senior with 46 tackles, two sacks and one interception through five games. He had a 20 tackle performance in Cedar Hill's win over Mansfield.

Scout recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks gave the following evaluation of him: "Dimitri Moore is an athletic second-level defensive prospect with the frame to grow into the linebacker position at the college level. Possesses good height and great length. Needs to gain weight and strength, but owns a frame that features ample room for bulk addition during the next several years.

"Moore has experience playing inside and in space. He excels running the alley on the edge of the defense against the run, similar to his older brother (2015 Texas A&M signee Richard Moore). Closes fast and with a purpose. Capable of delivering the big hit. Sometimes a bit overanxious in that sense, but never lacking in effort or intensity. Instinctive player who could potentially fit the so-called "spacebacker" role in the right defense. Adding size and strength will be key to Moore's development, but we expect him to do both. He plays for one of Texas' top high school programs and is accustomed to competition."
