In State RB Close To A Duke Offer?

Devon Moore has seen his stock rise among North Carolina prospects, and is now close to an offer from the Blue Devils.

As Devon Moore continues his dominance on the combine scene, more and more coaching staffs are taking notice. In the upcoming weeks, a few coaching staffs could go as far as offering the 5-foot-10, 185-pound tailback from Hillsborough (N.C.) Cedar Ridge.

"I think Duke is probably going to send me a full scholarship," said Moore. "Virginia Tech seemed like they are really interested and the coach at Maryland said that he really wanted me."

The Shrine Bowl Combine was the latest stage for the Devon Moore combine show. Both his 20-yard shuttle time (4.13 seconds) and vertical jump (37.7 inches) ranked in the top four performances. His 4.41-second forty-yard dash time wasn't too shabby, neither.

"I was shocked by my shuttle run," said Moore. "I was surprised by my forty; I didn't think I was going to get a 4.4 forty."

Early on, Moore considered Duke as his leader, but has since opened up his recruitment. He knows what he's looking for in a school and is basically waiting for offers to present themselves before naming any favorites.

"I don't really have any favorites," said Moore. "I'm looking for a school where I can fit in and start right away or get some playing time as soon as possible. And a school that's not too far away from home and with a good engineering program."

This summer Moore hopes to replicate his combine performances during college one-day camps. Maryland, Virginia Tech, and East Carolina are possible camping stops.
