Texas outside linebacker Dimitri Moore dropped some news via his Twitter account on Saturday night.
Moore released his top seven schools — Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Texas Tech and Vanderbilt, in alphabetical order — and also confirmed he will graduate in December and be an early enrollee for whichever school he chooses.
Moore, a 6-foot-2, 193-pounder at Cedar Hill (Texas) High School, is a three-star prospect rated as the 39th-best outside linebacker in the Class of 2017.
The Texas native visited several schools over the past few months, including Missouri, Minnesota, Iowa State and Texas Tech.
Scout.com evaluation: “Dimitri Moore is an athletic second-level defensive prospect with the frame to grow into the linebacker position at the college level. Possesses good height and great length. Needs to gain weight and strength, but owns a frame that features ample room for bulk addition during the next several years. Moore has experience playing inside and in space. He excels running the alley on the edge of the defense against the run, similar to his older brother (2015 Texas A&M signee Richard Moore). Closes fast and with a purpose. Capable of delivering the big hit. Sometimes a bit overanxious in that sense, but never lacking in effort or intensity. Instinctive player who could potentially fit the so-called "spacebacker" role in the right defense. Adding size and strength will be key to Moore's development, but we expect him to do both. He plays for one of Texas' top high school programs and is accustomed to competition.” - Gabe Brooks
