Fortunately for Ole Miss, who Moore visited in mid-December, the Rebels remain on his four-team wish list, which he says will be his final four.
"My final list is narrowed down to four - Ole Miss, Tennessee, Miami and Oregon State," Moore said from his California home. "I have already visited UT and Ole Miss and will visit Oregon State on the 14th of January and Miami on the 21st.
"I will not add any more schools and have recently eliminated Ohio State and LSU."
Moore has been very non-committal about his thought process other than the bare essentials.
"I will not decide until after the trip to Miami and I may not announce until signing day gets closer," Moore said.
"I'm sure I'll have a pretty good idea after my Miami visit, but right now all four are equal. There is no pecking order."
Byron, one of the most sought-after JUCO DBs in the nation, is looking for the right fit.
"I know I will fit in with the players at any of those four schools and all four of those schools offer a quality education, so neither one of those factors is an issue," he continued.
"What I am looking for is where I will be living - the atmosphere and the surroundings, and how well I relate to the coaches on the staff, particularly my position coach and defensive coordinator. I have to feel comfortable with the DC and the DB coach because that is who I will have the most interaction with."
Moore liked the staff at Ole Miss.
"I'm impressed with that staff. It means a lot to me that they are genuine and are like a family," he noted. "Coach (Houston) Nutt is a class person and his assistants are sincere.
"I talk to them frequently and sometimes we don't even talk about football. We talk about things that affect my life. I can tell they care about me and that's important to me. The current players there say the same thing."
Also on the plus side of the ledger for the Rebels, Moore said, was the chance for immediate playing time in a secondary that desperately needs quality help.
"That's one of the main factors, for sure," he closed. "I don't want to go in somewhere and sit around for a year or two. I am not afraid of competition, but anything that helps me have a quicker path to playing time is a good thing for me and my career."
Reading between the lines, there's not much there. It is what it is.
Byron is sincere that he's down to four schools, he's sincere that nobody leads right now and he's sincere that Ole Miss is still in the thick of things.
Who knows where the flip of the coin will land, but it's obvious the Rebels have positioned themselves nicely in the Byron Moore sweepstakes.
