Georgia Tech Gets Visit From C.J. Moore

Buford High School (Georgia) athlete C.J. Moore in Georgia only has one offer but he's beginning to get a lot of attention. The 5'10" – 160 has run a reported 4.24 forty which has gotten him attention from schools around the south.

With his speed, Buford uses C.J. Moore on both sides of the ball. "I play both cornerback and wide receiver." Moore also utilizes his speed on the track team running the 100 and 200 meters.

Wake Forest is the first school to offer Moore and he's also hearing from many of the top programs in the south. "I know a lot of other schools are looking at me and are close to offering." Georgia Tech, Tennessee, North Carolina, Arkansas, LSU, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, and Vanderbilt are some of the schools looking at Moore.

All of the schools are recruiting Moore as a cornerback with the exception of North Carolina. "UNC told me they're looking at me as an athlete."

Georgia Tech is one of the schools that have already received a visit from Moore. "I enjoyed my visit to Tech and I really liked the campus." Moore also was impressed with the value of a Georgia Tech degree. "I also liked the coaching staff and how they interact with the players."

Moore is being recruited at Tech by defensive line coach Andy McCollum. "He asked me to come to camp this summer and I've told him that I would." McCollum has already looked at Moore on film and is looking forward to seeing him work out at camp. "He said they are very interested in me and want me at Georgia Tech."

C.J. has Georgia Tech in his top five but is not ready to name that list. "They are definitely in my top five schools."

Moore has also been to LSU's Junior Day and has plans to visit Wake Forest next Saturday. "Later in March my dad and I will be taking a visit to Arkansas."

Academics will be one of the main things C.J. looks at in making a college choice. "My dad and my uncle have told me that it is important to value academics and I do value my education very much." Location may also factor into his decision. "I'd like to be close to home if possible." Moore is also looking at the coaching staffs and his relationship with them.

Look for both his dad and uncle to play a role in his decision. "Both of them played college ball in California and they've both gone through this." At their suggestion, Moore will be asking himself why he wants to go school at his college choice and be able to have valid answers for that choice.

Moore is looking at a couple of options for his college major. "Right now I am looking at engineering or computer science." Moore knows that this may change but those are the two fields that he likes right now. Top Stories
