Top Defensive End Nabs Michigan Offer

Kapron Lewis-Moore isn't just one of the top defensive ends in Texas, he is one of the top defensive ends in the country. He already has an impressive list of early offers and recently added another one from the University of Michigan.

Off the field, Kapron Lewis-Moore is as outgoing and engaging as you will ever find. Once you pop in his tape, though, you will see an entirely different person. Lewis-Moore is a big time defensive end from Weatherford, Texas. His talent is evidenced by his big list of early offers. This past Monday, one day after his Spring Break ended, he added the Michigan Wolverines to that list.

"I had been talking with Coach Bedford." he reported. "He told me that they had an offer for me. Then Coach Carr called and said the offer was waiting for me to take."

The Maize & Blue join a list of eleven other schools that have offered the 6'4, 227-lb pass rusher. Virginia, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, SMU, Baylor, Notre Dame, Duke, Illinois, Minnesota and Oklahoma are programs that had previously joined the fray. But rather than looking to narrow that list down, Lewis-Moore is hoping to expand it.

"Right now, since it's early in the process, I'm open to everyone," he said. "I kind of want to wait through the summer to see if I get any more offers. Then I'll start to narrow it down, maybe when I start taking officials."

Although he was born in California and did not move to Texas until he was three, the big defensive end has not been able to travel too much yet. His offer list has several schools that aren't so close to the Lone Star State, making unofficials and attending camps out of state this summer highly desirable. That said, trekking from campus to campus is not something that will be easy for him to do.

"It's not like I can just hop in a car and go," he said. "I would like to, but I don't think I can. I'm going to have to wait."

When it comes to where a school is located though, Lewis-Moore will take it into account, but it won't be the deciding factor in his final decision.

"It's not too much of an issue because I've been away from home before and everything," Lewis-Moore said. "I would like to stay close to home, but unfortunately I'm not being recruited by any schools that are right by me, so I have to take what I get."

Last season, his second year on the varsity, Lewis-Moore had 50 tackles and 5 sacks and says his best pass rush move is a swim move. He is also a standout on the hardwood as an intimidating power forward.

"I would like to play some basketball," said Lewis-Moore. "I wish someone would recruit me for basketball, but I'm too short to play in the post. I'm kind of like a Ben Wallace, though. I'm not too tall but I'm strong and physical down there"

GoBlueWolverine will have more on Lewis-Moore in the months to come.
