Fern Creek is one of the hotbeds of high school football in Louisville this year with at least three division one prospects. One of those prospects is Jerrell Moore. The 5-foot-11 Moore is an athlete capable of playing defensive back, running back or wide receiver at the next level.
As a junior, Moore ran for 829 yards and caught receptions for 879 yards. While those numbers indicate quite a bit of versatility, Moore still knows he has work to do. "I want to improve my strength," said Moore. "I know at the next level I will have to be more physical."
Moore has been more of a finesse back so far in his career, at 170 pounds. And with his sub 4.5 forty, he's been pretty successful. "My speed is my biggest strength," he said.
"He's a pretty good hitter and he's not afraid to run over you. He's more of a slash-type kid. We split him out wide and play him at receiver and play him at tailback," said Curtis Higgins of his star.
As a senior, Moore will be playing quarterback for Fern Creek and will get a chance to made several plays for his school with the ball in his hands on every down.
Several programs like the versatility that he brings to the table. Moore committed to Louisville late last year, but he hasn't closed the door on anybody.
"My verbal still stands," said Moore. "I'm weighing my options, but I'll finalize things next year on signing day."
Moore has been in contact with Kentucky, Oregon, Illinois, Purdue, Indiana and Western Kentucky. While Moore did commit to Louisville, he grew up as a Kentucky fan. This recruitment should go down to the very end.
