JUCO safety Moore wants to join the Cardinals

Pearl River, Miss., Community College safety Tavarius Moore enjoyed his visit to the University of Louisville over the weekend and wants to join the Cardinals' program. He won't be a signee this week but is hoping to sign in the spring.

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.
