Moore Talks TCU Offer
Olathe (KS) North tight end/defensive lineman Josh Moore picked up his first offer earlier this month, as Texas Tech made the call to the 2015 prospect. Last week, he added a second scholarship from a Big 12 program, as TCU extended a scholarship to the 6-foot-5, 250-pound junior. Coach DeMontie Cross was in Kansas City last Friday, and Moore came away impressed with the Frogs assistant. "He talked to me about how a lot of coaches are going to be knocking on my door," he said of the Horned Frogs staff. "I thought he was really cool. He was in our locker room before the game. He kind of sized me up a little bit. He's pretty cool, I like him." Cross gave Moore an assessment of his skills that every high school football dreams of hearing. "I got offered to play either side I choose to play, defensive end or tight end," he said, nodding. "He told me that a lot of guys aren't as talented as I am. He told me I have the potential to play after college. That's the thing that stuck out most to me." "It's a great feeling," he said, a big smile on his face. "I know I'm talented enough to do it, but I have to put in the work, because those guys work extremely hard. I know I have to put in the work if I want to do it." Moore is a teammate of four-star linebacker and current TCU commit Jimmie Swain. The idea of following Swain to Fort Worth is one that has already crossed Moore's mind. "Jimmie talks about them all the time," he said of the fellow Eagles standout. "It's worth looking at. We tear it up now. We are on the same side, and we are one of the best combos in the state. It would be great to play together in college, we have the perfect chemistry between us two."
