River Oaks star is versatile

Several days ago, Vincent Moore took part in Louisiana Tech football camp for the second time this summer. Moore, who currently has three scholarship offers, hopes to secure one from the Bulldogs in the near future. Read further to find out what the Tech coaches have said to the River Oaks standout.

River Oaks Academy star Vincent Moore has been offered a scholarship by three schools thus far and he's looking to add another one from Louisiana Tech. In that regard, Moore camped with the Bulldogs last weekend for the second time this summer.

"Tech's been recruiting me as a wide receiver," said Moore, "but their depth chart is loaded at that position and I hear that they're only going to sign one receiver. The coaches have been straightforward and honest about it and they've made it clear that they're interested in signing me to possibly play defense.

"I went to the second camp to work out as a safety and get my name out there as a defensive player. I worked with coach Spangler, the defensive coordinator, most of the day and I got to know him well. The coaches told me to call them this week. I'm not sure if I'll get an offer just yet, because I know that Tech - more than most schools - evaluates players based on their senior year."

River Oaks is already into its second week of two-a-day practices.

"We started last Monday and our scrimmage is this Friday," said Moore. "We scrimmage University Christian, Central Hinds, and one other Mississippi school.

"We're switching from a 4-3 on defense to a 3-4. Our defense looks just as strong as last year and we only gave up 12 points a game then. On paper, we appear to be pretty dang strong as a team."

Moore will rarely come off the field during his senior campaign.

"Teshadi Talton, our transfer from West Monroe, and I will be handling dual punt returns," he said, "and the two of us will mostly be lined up in the slots in a four-wide set. We'll be getting the football on some speed sweeps out of the slot and and we'll also get some looks at running back.

"I'm going to play some quarterback too in the Wildcat formation and we might run some spread option with Teshadi at running back. It would be cool to throw the football as a quarterback. Teshadi and I will be all over the place and the only time I'll be on the sideline will be on some punt and kickoff coverage."

Moore (6-1, 190, 4.48) currently has offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, ULM, and McNeese State.
