Clayton Moore, a three-star quarterback from Louisville (MS) HS, woke up to some very big news Monday morning. That's when he learned that the Louisville Cardinals had just offered a scholarship. One of the hot QB prospects in the South, Moore is in the process of sorting out his recruitment and 15 other offers.

"I heard about it (Monday) morning," Moore said of Louisville's offer. "I actually woke up – probably five minutes after I woke up I was informed I had an offer and I thought ‘wow, that's pretty cool.

"I had a few letters from them but nothing major. The offer just kind of popped up. I was little surprised. I'm going to call the coach that offered me tonight."

Counting Louisville's new offer, Moore now holds 16 total offers. Louisville, Pittsburgh, Iowa, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Kansas, Indiana, New Mexico State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, USM, East Carolina, Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, Western Michigan, Florida Atlantic, and Bowling Green have sent offers.

"I don't have any favorites," Moore said. "I'm still waiting to get a few more offers and I'm going to sit down and look at everything and see how things are. I don't have any favorites right now."

What is Moore looking for in a potential college?

"First of all I'm looking for the right depth chart for me to go in and have a chance for me to compete for a spot," Moore said. "Building a relationship with my quarterback coach will have a lot to do with who I choose."

The 6' 2", 205 pound signal caller led his team to the State Championship as a junior and had over 4, 000 yards of offense and 42 TD's.

"My job is to move the chains and that's just what I do," said Moore, who's rated Scout.com's No. 35 quarterback prospect. "That's what I try to do as much as possible and try to be a leader to my teammates. I try not to do too much and let my abilities take over and have fun and play the game."
