Moore Narrows List to Two

Alonzo Moore was the Louisiana Class 2A offensive player of the year and has narrowed his list down to two. Come inside to see who he's down to and learn about his season.

On Thursday morning, Winnfield high school (LA) football coach Andy Pyles confirmed athlete Alonzo Moore has narrowed down his schools to Mississippi State and Nebraska.

"I think with what Mississippi State does, he would probably end up playing wide out there," said Pyles. "I haven't been told this or anything. I know Nebraska is interested in him as a quarterback. He's got a chance really both ways. He's a great athlete, he could also play corner. He's got really good hips and high jumped 7-feet last year in track. He also made all-state in basketball last year. The kid is a just an athlete."

Pyles' Winnfield squad finished the season 14-1 and lost in the state championship game to Louisiana 2A powerhouse John Curtis, 33-3. Despite not finishing as state champions, Moore was voted Louisiana Class 2A offensive player of the year.

"At wideout, I think he caught 42 balls for 1,200 yards this season. We also put him in as a wildcat quarterback for us," said Pyles. "He ran for about 1,400 yards from it and I think threw for another 600 yards. He also returned six kick returns and punt returns for touchdowns. The honors he got, he deserved."

Moore played quarterback for Pyles during his freshman and sophomore year, but was moved to the wideout position in 2010 due to Winnfield having a senior quarterback with a quote "big arm."

The 2012 prospect flourished and immediately drew the attention from college coaches. Moore had offers from Louisiana, Ole Miss, Arkansas, and Texas A&M before narrowing it down to his two current schools.

Not only did the senior take an official visit to Nebraska during Washington week, but he also was on campus twice this summer – including once for a camp.
