Florida Running Back Gets KSU Offer

MANHATTAN , Kan. - Coach Snyder and staff continue to look to Florida in recruiting, with RB - Fabian Moreau out of Western High School picking up an offer.

Fabian Moreau, a senior at Broward County's Western High School in Davie, Fla., received his first offer in May from Western Michigan. Offers followed from Florida International, Florida Atlantic, and Western Illinois. Two weeks ago the 5-foot-11, 182-pound running back received his first offer from a BCS school from Kansas State.

"I received a letter stating I had an offer (From Kansas State)," said Fabian Moreau. "I've talked to some of their assistant coaches on Facebook. Being from Florida, I don't know a whole lot about Kansas State. It seems like a good school. An offer from the Big 12 was huge for me."

Moreau went to camp at nearby Miami this summer. He's been hearing from the Canes' coaches, as well as Maryland, Boston College, FSU, and Stanford.

"I''d like to get a couple more offers," Moreau said. "For me it's about the coaching staff, education offered, campus atmosphere, and early playing time. Oregon is my dream school because of the fast-paced offense they run. I'd love to play in a similar style of offense, but I think I can fit in anywhere."

At a National Underclassman Combine event held in the spring in Atlanta, Moreau impressed with a 4.38 40-yard dash and was named the combine's "Fastest Man." He was also awarded the running back MVP. Prior to the 2011 season, Moreau was named among the top 50 seniors in talent-rich Broward County by the South Florida Sun Sentinel (No. 31).

"I had a pretty good first game," said Moreau on Western's season opener with South Broward. "I scored four touchdowns. My coach didn't think they could stay with me on man coverage so had a few swing routes out of the backfield and some time at slot receiver. I made five catches for 204 yards and three touchdowns. Rushing, I had three carries for 49 yards and a touchdown."

The Western Wildcats came away with the 41-13 win. This is Moreau's second year as a starter. Last season he had 700 yards and five touchdowns. He feels like he's primed for a big senior campaign.

"In the off-season I've gained some weight, gotten stronger, and faster," Moreau said. "I feel like I'm more of a complete running back and more of a team player. My speed and vision are my two best assets as a running back. It's a goal of mine to rush for over 1,000 yards and make All-County. The main goal is to help my team deep into the playoffs. Last year we made it, but got beat in the first round."

Moreau plans to make a decision after the season. In the classroom, he reports a 3.5 GPA and a 20 on the ACT. After a bye week, the Wildcats face Douglas High School of Parkland, Fla. on September 16th. Things should heat up after this.....Stay Tuned.
