Moorman Hopes to Build on Camp Experiences

2015 Plymouth (MI) OL David Moorman improved his profile considerably with strong camp showings last week. GBW chatted with the talented youngster about his game, his recruitment, his favorites, and more. **Camp footage include**

The Sound Mind Sound Body and Michigan Camps signified the coming out party for 2015 Plymouth, MI offensive lineman, David Moorman.  The 6-5, 275-pounder initially tuned heads during his sophomore season, but an injury unfortunately cut his impressive campaign short.

“It was a pretty good season,” recalled Moorman.  “I started at right tackle for us.  I did pretty good all five games I played.  Then I tore my MCL in the fifth game of the season, so I was out for the last couple of games.  But I it was a good job and I got a lot of good reps in. I had a pretty good year.”

Coaches that had seen his limited film had to be pleased with what they saw from him camp.  His footwork was every bit as good in person as it was on tape and he also demonstrated the ability to quickly translate instruction to performance. For Moorman all of those critical eyes on him actually help him raise his game to a higher level.

“I’ve played in font of coaches before I’ve been to a lot of camps, but I’d never been to a place like (Sound Mind Sound Body) where there were multiple division one and division two coaches all there watching us.  It was pretty exciting.  It gets you pumped. It was great!  It was good being out there talking to a lot of coaches, doing a lot of good drills and getting a lot of reps.  I really enjoyed it.”

He performed well under the watchful gaze of Michigan coaches a few days later.  While most of those reps came at tackle, many scouts believe Moorman will be better suited playing inside on the college level if he doesn’t get any taller. 

“Some people say I can be a guard… some people say I can be a tackle,” he said.  “I’m pretty versatile and I’m open to playing anywhere.  I just want to play division one football. I’m down for whatever.
In recent weeks the Plymouth star has fielded increased interest from Ball State, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Michigan.  While he has no favorites at the moment he admits to having an allegiance to the Midwest.  He also has a keen awareness of Michigan’s rich history.

“Everyone knows about Jake Long and Taylor Lewan,” said Moorman.  “They have great tradition there. I’d be really lucky if I maybe play there one day.”

“I really just grew up a fan of the big ten.  Basically any school who would recruit me I would be open to. I’m not really partial to any one school.”
