Pearl River, Miss., Community College safety Tavarius Moore is hoping the University of Louisville has a spot for him on the roster.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Moore made an official visit to U of L this weekend and said he "really enjoyed everything about it," and told the coaches he wants to play for U of L.
"I was expecting it to be that way," he said. "It was a lot of fun and I liked the coaches and love the way they play defense. I know they have a lot of safeties leaving and there's plenty of room there to fill in spots.
"I want to sign in May and would be here in June."
Moore said U of L assistant coach Greg Brown started showing interest two or three weeks ago and mentioned Kansas as the other school showing the most interest.
A year out of Quitman, Miss., High School, Moore played just one season at the JUCO. He had two interceptions and 50 tackles for Pearl River.
"I was a qualifier out of high school but I was overlooked," he said. "I went to a smaller high school and was overlooked. So, I just wanted to go (to the JUCO) and play to get my name out there. It's worked out for me.
"I'm excited to play in the NFL-style (at Louisville). I think I'll fit in well."
Moore was teammates with defensive end Drew Bailey, who has signed with U of L and is enrolled for this semester. Moore would have three years of eligibility left.
