Clyde Moore is a fast rising linebacker whose stock is starting to rise.

Moore is a good looking middle 'backer who shows up very well on film. He's a physical player who can run and hit and plays with a non-stop motor. He does a nice job reading and reacting, is an instinctual player, is comfortable playing in space and plays with a nice edge to him. 

On the recruiting front, Moore landed his first offer from Hawaii back in February and San Jose State followed up just a few weeks later. In late April, Moore landed his first Pac-12 offer from Colorado and Arizona State offered a week ago.

"Getting that first one from Hawaii was insane," Moore said. "It's always great to get that first one out there. It came from out of the blue too, I wasn't expecting it at all but it was a great feeling. Same thing with SJSU, I had no idea it was coming. I had been talking with them a little but to get the offer was definitely special."

The two Pac-12 offers made a very big impression on Moore as well.

"It was a dream come true," Moore said. "All the offers are big but those two were huge because I've always wanted to play in the Pac-12. Coach (D.J) Eliot) (LB coach) DMed me to call him and then he offered, it was crazy. That's a great program and I know they're headed in the right direction.

"The same thing happened with ASU. Coach (Keith) Patterson (DC) DMed me and then I called him and he offered. It's a great school as well and I definitely plan to get out there and take a visit over the spring or summer."

Moore has been to several USC practices and also took a visit over the spring to see the Arizona Wildcats

"I was there for the spring game and had a really good time," Moore said. "Coach (Scott) Boone (LB coach) is the one recruiting me and I'm going to camp there over the summer. They'll actually be coming out here for a satellite camp so if I can't make it out to campus, I'll do the camp out here.

"I'm going to try and visit Colorado in June and then do summer camps with USC and UCLA too. My older brother Grant Moore plays at USC and that has kind of been a dream school of mine since I was little. I know this is a business decision for me though and I'm looking for the best overall fit for me and where I can have the most success on and off the field."
