Moore enjoys Kansas camp

The Kansas Jayhawks may have the quarterback position locked up in the Class of 2013, thanks to commitments from Montell Cozart and Jordan Darling, but it's never too early to begin looking ahead.

Almost two weeks ago, Head Coach Charlie Weis and his staff held an important camp on campus, under the lights at Memorial Stadium - 'Friday Night Lights' - featuring prospects from the junior and senior classes.

One of the more promising junior quarterback prospects in attendance was Springtown (TX) High signal caller Colby Moore. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound talent had the opportunity to speak with Weis and his son, Charlie Weis Jr., as well as to work with quarterbacks coach Ron Powlus.

Needless to say, he left Lawrence, Kan. impressed.

"I had a great time getting to spend time under the lights at KU's stadium," Moore said. "Their place is excellent. The weight room, locker room is very nice. Top notch - they have some of the best facilities around."

Excited to measure himself against the likes of Cozart and Darling, he appreciated the opportunity to gain instruction from Powlus, who has himself tutored the likes of Brady Quinn, Jimmy Clausen and current Kansas quarterback Dayne Crist.

It wasn't his first visit to Lawrence - he made the trip up during the 2011 season for the Baylor game - but already he can tell things are changing.

"I'm loving how their football is changing the program around," Moore said. "I can tell the attitude is completely different from last year, just from being up there last time."

It's been a busy summer for the young quarterback, who has attended camps at Kansas, Kansas State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, TCU, Rice, Houston and Texas-San Antonio.'s Jeremy Clark, publisher of the network's TCU affiliate, has seen Moore in person, and believes him to be a major talent - one to watch in the Class of 2014.

"He displays excellent footwork, a good release, strong arm," Clark said. "His dad was an excellent baseball player so he comes from good bloodlines."

For now, Moore is eyeing the possibility of a few more camps in July, though he hasn't yet nailed down the dates. And a return trip to Lawrence during the fall is a possibility.

"I may go up this year for a game," he said. "Me and my dad have to sit down and figure out what games we're going to go to, because a bunch of schools wanted me to come by their place." Top Stories
