Houston County (GA) Standout Discusses Favorites

Houston County prospect <b>Kyle Moore</b> is one of the top players in the south at his position for 2005. The standout defensive lineman already possesses two offers, and many more are just around the corner.

"I have offers from Duke and Georgia Tech," Kyle Moore said. "My top five is Georgia, Florida State, Miami, Oklahoma, and USC. I'm being recruited by all of them."

What does Moore like about each of his favorites?

Georgia: "I really like their coaches, especially Coach Johnson. I know a lot of guys up there like Trahern Holden, Michael Grant, and A.J. Bryant."

Florida State: "I like Coach Allen a lot. The facilities are great, and I really like the weight room."

Miami: "I grew up liking Miami. That was my team."

Oklahoma: "The defense. They're just creative."

Southern Cal: "They got a trill offense."

Moore played defensive tackle at Lowndes County during his freshman season, and he continued at that position when he transferred to HOCO for his sophomore year. That changed last fall when Kyle swapped to DE, and basically became unstoppable.

"I had 15 sacks, 89 tackles, 21 assists, and 4 fumble recoveries. I like playing end because I get to move around a lot more. I get more sacks, and it frees me up to make plays. I want to beat all those stats next year."

What is Kyle looking for most of all in a school?

"The coaches, the players, and the surroundings on campus."

It's a testament to just how good an athlete Moore really is when you look at some of the other sports he excels in. At 6'6, he's a lean 246lbs but that doesn't mean he's not strong. Kyle has qualified for the state meet in the discus and shot put every year since he was a freshman, and he can bench press 305lbs despite how long his arms are. To go along with football and track, the Central GA star also started for the basketball team as well.

Kyle plans to attend the Georgia camp this summer, but first he will head to Atlanta on May 1-2 for the MSL/TheInsiders Combine at Clark Atlanta University.

Moore already has the GPA and Test Score to project as a full qualifier.
