Hawkeyes Offer Another Top Texas RB

The Iowa Hawkeyes have been mining their Texas pipeline since Hayden Fry took over the program back in the late 1970's. Kirk Ferentz and his coaching staff have been landing a few Lone Star State prospects here and there, and they recently offered another one of the top running backs in the state in Kestahn Moore...HN recruiting analyst Josh Clark spoke with him and has the latest, including what he is looking for ion a program and how that relates to Iowa...

Currently ranked the #2 running back in the state of Texas, Kestahn Moore has seen his recruiting interest continue to pick up, including a couple recent offers.

"I was just offered by Iowa and Kentucky, giving me twelve offers now," said Moore, who also claims offers from Oklahoma State, Arizona, Texas A&M, Kansas, Boston College, Duke, Wisconsin, Colorado, SMU, and BYU. "I'm wide open right now, and considering all of the schools around my area. I'm not likely to head out that far east to schools like Boston College and Duke."

Moore has also received significant interest from other programs, such as Missouri, Georgia Tech and Kansas State. He attended summer camps at Miami (FL) and Oklahoma State.

What did he walk away thinking about the Cowboys?

"The camp was good. I really liked it. They showed me a lot of their new facilities, and the new dorms that freshman stay in. Those were real nice. They have good academics there, and that is important to me because I know I need to make sure I receive my degree."

While Moore has not set a deadline for narrowing his list, what will be the criteria used in making a decision?

"I want to play for a good running back coach. He either has to be a former running back himself or have produced backs that have gone to the next level as that is definitely my goal. I'd like to go to a place where they are not overloaded with depth at running back, and I want to play in a balanced offense. I like to catch passes out of the backfield."
