USAAAB: Tyler Moore

Tyler Moore knows a thing or two about Cornhusker football. Coming from a big Nebraska family, Moore's decision to head to Lincoln was not much of surprise. This week Moore has been doing his best to represent his family, community and the Nebraska program during U.S. Army All-American Bowl practices.

The offensive line had a lot of gelling to do on Monday, but on Tuesday things really improved.

"We were definitely a lot better today," said Moore. "We're getting some chemistry now. We're all starting to joke around in practice like we have been around each for a long time."

The attempts to build relationships extend to off the field activities.

"We sit together at all meals just trying to get that bond going," said Moore. "We have been hanging out together a lot just doing all we can together."

Tyler has been impressed with a few defensive foes this week during individual and team drills.

"So far the two main guys who have been really good are Tim Jernigan and Michael Bennett," said Moore. "I have been real impressed with the interior guys and I like Ishaq Williams a lot on the outside."

While many prospects are still considering their college options, Tyler has been off the market for sometime.

"I took my official visit back in September when they played Texas," said Moore about his trip to Lincoln. "I haven't really talked to any school since my junior year."

An offer from Coach Bo Pelini was just what Tyler had been hoping for and his commitment to the Cornhuskers is a huge source of family pride.

"I really like all of the coaches there and I am the fourth person in my family to go to Nebraska, so it's another stepping stone for my family," said Moore. "I see a good future. I think next year we can get ten wins if not more and then we will just build on that."
