Moore talks Nebraska

The Nebraska quarterback camp wasn't filled with a lot of names that had offers, but one name that supposedly shined while there was Alonzo Moore. Moore, from Winnfield (La.) said that the Nebraska staff had him working out as a quarterback initially, but asked him to workout as a wide receiver later in the camp. Now, the Nebraska staff is actually recruiting him to play one of three positions.

There isn't a lot of rest in the summer for DI football recruits. It's filled with long summer days that start in the morning with your team, turn to time in the weight rooms and usually end with your team again in workouts.

It's no different for Alonzo Moore who says that he's not getting a lot of time off this summer. In fact, in the heat of the summer, said that he was just wrapping up a seven on seven football game that's really more like a league round where he is from.

"We had seven on seven tonight," Moore said. "It's just against the other schools that we play against during the season. It's something like a league."

Moore is getting his reps in too. He says that on any given down that he could be at one of two positions depending on which side of the ball Winnfield (La.) is on.

"I have been playing wide receiver, cornerback, quarterback and free safety. I play multiple positions on both sides of the football. I will be playing 70% wide receiver and 30% quarterback this fall. I am being recruited the most to play wide receiver."

Moore recently returned from camp at Nebraska and the word is that he impressed. In fact, he worked out under center and later in the camp moved out to catch passes from the quarterbacks.

"It was the quarterback camp at Nebraska, but my last day there they had me doing wideout drills. They are recruiting me as a wide receiver, quarterback and cornerback prospect. They are recruiting me to play all three."

Personally, Moore says that there isn't a preference which position he plays as long as his team is on the winning side of the scoreboard. "All three of those positions are nice. I really don't care as long as we are getting that victory."

Going to Nebraska for summer camp gave Moore a good idea about the distance he would have to go for school. He says that doesn't concern him. Moore has also started texting a couple of the current Nebraska players that he met while in Lincoln.

"It really doesn't make any difference how far I have to go to school. Lincoln was nice. I met some players from Louisiana. I have been texting with Khiry Cooper and Jamal Turner."

Moore says that nothing is set in stone and that he will start to trim his list later this summer. However, you can probably count on one team making that cut whether it's to three or to five schools and he will take an official visit there.

"I will be taking an official visit to Nebraska for sure, no doubt. At the end of the summer I am going to cut my list to a top three or a top five and go from there. Nebraska is going to make that cut."
