Moore rates NU a "10"

It's been a long weekend for Alonzo Moore. The athlete from Winnfield (La.) is on his way back home and is recounting the visit to Nebraska. It's a bit of a blur, but he knows that it went great. Moore said that the visit went so well in fact that he rated it a "10". There was one thing that could have been better though.

Nebraska hosted a couple of official visitors this past weekend. Alonzo Moore, an athlete from Winnfield (La.), is driving back home from Dallas after a short flight this morning.

"I am in Dallas," Moore said. "I have to drive home from Dallas because the flight into Alexander was already booked. I will be alright though."

Moore said that it was a long morning already after a long night. In fact, Moore said that it's all blended together already because he hasn't been to sleep yet.

"Oh no, I didn't get any. I haven't been to sleep yet. I got up there around 10:30 Friday morning. I went and ate with the team for lunch and then went to meetings with the team.

"That night I was with the team and went to see a movie with them. I thought that was really cool. It was a really fun thing to do with the team. It was crazy."

On Saturday morning he was up with the team and spent some time with the other official visitor that was in Lincoln. The two threw the ball a little bit, watched warm ups and then headed back inside the locker room together.

"We got up and going around 9:00 on Saturday and before the game I ate with Tommy Armstrong. We went down and threw the football a little bit before the game.

"When the team came out to warm up we went out to watch them a little bit. We went back into the locker room and then came back out before them."

Moore said that the tunnel walk made him feel like he was coming out to play a game. He was caught off guard by all of the people that knew who he was and that he was asked to sign some autographs.

"Oh man, it felt like I was playing. Everyone was shaking my hand and were asking me to sign autographs. People knew who I was. It was awesome.

"People knew my name and I was wondering how they knew my name. Coach Corey Raymond said that whenever recruits came in they would know who I was."

Moore was blown away with the game day atmosphere of Memorial Stadium. He compared it to all of the other games he has seen before, but said that Nebraska was unlike anything he had ever seen.

"The atmosphere was great. The fans were loud and up the whole game. It was just crazy. Out of all the games I have ever been too there wasn't anything like Nebraska."

Nebraska is recruiting Moore to play on either side of the football. He would like to play a number of positions in Lincoln possibly, but he will do what the coaches ask him to do in the end.

"I really don't know. I like that I am coming in as an athlete and that I could go on either side of the ball. I would like to play multiple positions, but if I can only play one I would play where the coaches wanted me to play."

The visit could have been better for Moore, but you couldn't tell by the score that he gave to Nebraska and his visit. What could have gone better is a little bit on him.

"It was a "10". One thing that could have been better would have been my sleep. I guess my sleep. There really wasn't anything else. I keep thinking about that. I didn't go to sleep."

Moore says that he will likely take one more official visit in the coming weeks and then make an unofficial visit to another school. He would like to wrap up his commitment soon to keep it from becoming a distraction.

"I am going to see Mississippi State soon probably for their next home game. I was just going to drive up to Louisiana Tech which is just an hour away and go to one of their games.

"I am trying to get it all out of the way before district play and playoffs start. I don't want any of this to interfere with the team and be a distraction."
