Tyler Moore Weighing his Options

Head coach Charlie Strong and offensive line coach Joe Wickline are always on the hunt for offensive linemen. Texas has four offensive line players committed for the class of 2015 with Toby Weathersby, Garrett Thomas, Ronnie Major and Patrick Vahe. They are looking for one or two more to round out this year's class.

Tyler Moore is a 6-foot-5, 310-pound center from Galena Park (TX) North Shore Senior. He has offers from Oregon State, Texas State, New Mexico, Minnesota and Illinois to name a few. The Texas Longhorns are considered the front-runner at this time.

"It's a crazy feeling, and you know it can be hectic sometimes but it's okay," Moore said. "I think the schools love the way I move and the way I play my game plus my footwork is a lot better than most making me very marketable."

Moore has not only the footwork, but the size you look for in the center position. He has a tremendous upside and very high ceiling at the center position, and Texas is in great shape as the start of practice draws near.

"I love the coaching staff," Moore said. "I like what coach Strong is doing in Austin and coach Wickline."

Moore is not sure when his final decision will be made, but you can count on Texas, Colorado, TCU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas and Texas Tech all being in the mix with the Longhorns right in the thick of things.

Scout.com Take:

Moore is a massive interior offensive line prospect who could either play guard or center in college and has experience playing both already in high school. Very strong, and is just overpowering at times. He is as big in the upper body as you will see. Looks like he could bench press a truck. He will need to continue to work on his lateral quickness and footwork, but if he locks on it is over. Moore is a nasty finisher. – Powers.
