Georgia Gets Commitment from 2 Way Standout

Georgia has made the wide receiver and defensive backfield positions a priority the past two seasons. This weekend, they picked up a commitment that could fill those needs on either side of the ball.

"I committed to the University of Georgia," said North Broward Prep Standout Mike Moore. "I talked with Coach VanGorder and Coach Eason when I made my commitment. The reason why I chose Georgia: a lot went into it. UGA was the best place for me. I had developed great relationships with Coach VanGorder who is my recriuting coach and also Coach Eason, who is my position coach at Georgia (wide receivers)."

"Another thing is that they play in the SEC, and they're a big school. I felt comfortable with all of the coaches. My mom got to meet Coach Richt and she fell in love with him and the type of man he is, and the person he is on the field and off the field."

"The last key to my commitment was Coach Eason said if I worked hard the rest of this season and the offseason I could definitely be in the rotation next year."

Will Moore take any other visits, or is he a solid commitment to the Bulldogs?

"As of now, I don't plan on taking any other visits. Coach VanGorder asked me to talk to Coach Richt at the LSU game about taking other visits. Right now, I'm not planning to."

Moore chose the Bulldogs over a host of other teams.

"I chose Georgia over Florida State, NC State, Tennessee, and Pittsburgh. I had over 30 offers. Miami is really the only school I liked that hadn't offered yet, but they said they were close."

Has Moore thought about what it's going to be like at Georgia next season?

"I already have goals set for when I get to Georgia. I want to break Fred Gibson's freshman receiving record. Georgia has always been my favorite school."

Moore projects as a full qualifier

SEC Recruiting Analyst Scott Kennedy's Take: I got a chance to watch Mike Moore closely at the MSL Combine in Miami. He has the ability to play on the defensive side of the ball if he does not end up at receiver for Georgia. He is a versatile prospect with good size and speed and is a great catch for the Bulldogs.
