Cre Moore Offered

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State got into the mix for Broken Arrow, Oklahoma cornerback Cre Moore. Going to July, Moore had a total of nine Division 1 offers, but added to that total with an impressive showing at a Wildcat summer camp in Manhattan. He said he felt like he would be offered going into the camp.

"After [Kansas State] came to see me during spring practice they told me they planned on offering me if I came up to camp," said Cre Moore. "A couple of days after the camp, I was on the phone with Coach Hayes. He said they liked my height, my speed, and cover skills and were ready to offer me. "I really like Kansas State. The coaches are laid-back. It's a big time program in Big 12. They have a lot of things I'm looking for [in a school] like a good family environment, the opportunity to play early, and good academics."

The 6-foot, 175-pound defensive back was also offered by in-state rival, Kansas, a couple of weeks earlier. His other eight offers are from Arkansas State, Colorado State, Houston, Memphis (his first offer), New Mexico, Tulsa, Wyoming, and South Dakota. He says he's not in a big hurry to make a commitment decision.

"I don't have any favorites or a time frame to make a decision by," he said. "I've been to Arkansas, Tulsa, Kansas State, and to Arkansas State twice. Houston wants me to visit on (July) 21st, but after that I don't have anything planned for July or August."

Last season Moore shared playing time with Levi Copelin, who signed with Missouri in February. The Broken Arrow Tigers fell one point short in the Oklahoma Class 6A state championship game to Tulsa Union played at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

"I had 50 tackles, three interceptions, and blocked three field goals," Moore said on his junior season. "This year, with Levi gone, I'm the full-time starter. I'm in the weight room all the time trying to add weight and get bigger. My only goal next season is to win state to make up for what happened last year."

This past March in Dallas, Moore put up a excellent 97 score at a Nike Sparq combine and ran a 4.51 40 yard dash. He competes in the 100, 400, 4 by 1, 4 by 4, and the long jump and qualified for state in the relay events. An exceptional student, Moore hopes to study something in the medical field in college.
