"I watched Tech's first two-a-day practices," Moore said. "The morning practice was mostly a walk-through. I was able to see what a college practice is like. Coach (Rob) Likens, who is the main person that I've been talking to at Tech, showed me around and I got to see all of the facilities. There were some things that I hadn't previously seen.
"I met some of the players and talked with them. We were sitting in Coach Likens' office and Coach (Sonny) Dykes stopped by. He told me that he was glad to see me, and they asked me to come back to the 6 P.M. practice."
What type of vibe did Moore get from the coaches?
"They seemed genuinely excited to see me," he said. "I stayed for the evening practice. During the day, I went and ate lunch with Taylor Burch, who is a childhood friend of mine. I'd love to get a Tech offer. It's not right in my backyard, but it's still close to home."
Moore, who currently has three offers, is getting ready for River Oaks' season opener.
"We play Riverdale Academy this week," he said. "We went and scouted them in their jamboree last week. They have a big running back/linebacker named Josh Hinds. It's not easy to bring him down.
"Our preseason scrimmage was a couple of weeks ago, and the defense did really well. We flew to the ball and shut all three teams out. On offense, we made it into the end zone quite a few times - at least five or six. We didn't run a lot of plays, and I only had three or four touches, but one of them was a 60-yard touchdown catch."
Last Thursday, the Mustangs squared off with Madison-Ridgeland Academy and Adams County Christian in jamboree action.
"We tied MRA," said Moore, "which was pretty good, considering that they might have the most biggest enrollment in our association. They have around 500 students, compared to 100 for us.
"We beat Adams County 21-0. They were overmatched and we played pretty well. I had a 35-yard touchdown catch in that one. Our transfer (from West Monroe), Teshadi Talton, showed what he can do. He ran a sweep to the left on the first play and it got blown up. It looked like he was going to be stopped for a five-or-six yard loss, but he reversed field and took it about 50 yards. No one will be able to catch him from behind."
Moore is being recruited as either a safety or wide receiver on the next level.
