"The main schools I have been talking to are Louisville and Mississippi State," said Moore. "Coach (Dave) Wommack, the defensive coordinator from Ole Miss, came to my school just before we got out, but I haven't heard from them since then."

Coaches from Louisville and Mississippi State reached out to Moore around the turn of the new year.

"Coach (Charlie) Strong from Louisville called me right before they played the Sugar bowl and Coach (Knox) from Mississippi State called me when they were getting ready to play the Gator Bowl," explained Moore. "I am going to be taking an official visit to Louisville the 12th and 13th and Coach Mullen is supposed to be calling me tomorrow to tell me my date. I think it's going to be the 25th."

Moore is still waiting for a four year school scholarship offer and he is willing to change positions if needed.

"I played quarterback, but I really want to play slot receiver," said Moore. "I like being able to play a lot of positions, so I will play wherever they need me.

"I am just trying to find the right place for me and find a team that feels like family.

"You know your coaches are sort of like a father to you, so I want to go somewhere that I have a good relationship with the coaches."
