Camp Life

Whitmer High School's Marquise Moore is committed to Toledo, but he continues to attend football camps to check out other schools. The past two weeks, he has attended sessions at a Big 12 and a Big Ten school.

Marquise Moore committed to Toledo based on the strength of relationships he built with the coaches there, but he still wants to "see where he feels comfortable". To that end, he attended West Virginia's one day camp last week and Penn State's camp this past Saturday.

"I'm from Ohio, and I've never seen mountains like I saw at West Virginia," the strong pass rusher said. "That was a great sight. I really liked West Virginia – my position coach really coached me up. He worked with me on a lot of hand techniques, like my rip move and wrist grabs. I've always been strong and able to use my quickness on the pass rush, but this is the first time I've seen some of these techniques."

Moore certainly took the coaching to heart, as he was dominant during one-on-one pass rushing drills. He repeatedly got to the quarterback by using a quick first step and excellent moves, and was easily one of the best linemen on the field.

Moore also plans to attend Ohio State's camp, and is hoping to get offers from those schools where he has camped this summer. That certainly doesn't mean he will decommit, but he said he will listen to offers. Also in that mix would be Michigan State, another school that has his interest.

Moore does not have an offer from West Virginia yet, but he recently provided the coaching staff with his video. He expects to hear back from the Mountaineer staff after they view it and review his performance.

When it comes down to his final decision, however, one factor rides above all others.

"Everything for me at a school depends on the coaches and how I relate with them," he said. "That's everything with them – how we get along, how they treat me as a player, and the relationship I have with them. That's what I found at Toledo."
