Interview: Ryan Moore

When I went to watch Ryan Moore at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando this past May, there was an array of college coaches also there. Some who felt he was the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the entire country.

First off, Moore does not stand 6-foot-4 as most other websites indicate. I told everyone he's 6-2 when I watched him in May and Ryan confirmed that by telling me he was measured at 6-2 about a month ago at a summer basketball camp. At 6-2, he's in the 180 range. His build is very similar to Devin Aromashodu.

As of today, I feel Aromashodu is the state's best prospect. I'd put Ryan Moore at No. 2. Both of them have inredible ability and both have the ability to play on Sundays some day.

Moore says he's a 4.45 kid. I'd say that's very accurate. He's very quick and has tremendous acceleration. Moore has jumped 39 inches on the vertical, making his 6-2 frame even more impressive.

He's still learning to play the position like Aromashodu, but in a couple years after getting coached at the college level, it won't take him long before he emerges as one of the premier wide receivers in the entire country.

What is your core GPA: 2.8 core

Your current test score: I'm already qualified. I got an 890 on the SAT.

Which schools have offered scholarships: Oh man, a lot of them. Pretty much everyone who has talked to me has also sent me a scholarship offer.

If signing day were tomorrow, what's it looking like: Miami's my favorite school right now. They've offered and I could see myself playing there. If it's not Miami, maybe LSU or North Carolina or Florida.

Talk about Florida: Jabar Gaffney is my favorite player. They've talked to me and I'm still considering them.

Talk about Florida State: They're a great program and all, but I'm not considering them.

Talk about Miami: I really like it there. They provide a great situation for me. They're definitely my leaders.

This was a very encouraging interview. It's not often when one state produces two wide receivers the caliber and Aromashodu and Moore in the same year. And it's even more rare when both are leaning to the same program early in the season. To be perfectly honest, I'll be real surprised if Moore ends up signing with another program.
