Moore talks Nebraska offer

Olathe North (KS) high school junior Josh Moore was offered by Nebraska on Tuesday night. Come inside to get his thoughts on the newest scholarship nod.

At 6-foot-5, 250-pounds, Olathe North (KS) high school junior Josh Moore is versatile. It could be one of the biggest reasons the Kansas prep got an offer from the Huskers on Tuesday night.

"I sort of felt it was coming," said Moore, who had seen Nebraska come through earlier in the spring evaluation process. "I don't know a ton about them. I just know they are really good.

"I visited unofficially for the UCLA game, but I will likely visit again. I thought the place was great. I liked it a lot. The fan base is nuts."

Moore's recruitment has seen a spike in the last few weeks. Nebraska joins schools like Auburn, Florida State, Iowa State, Minnesota, Ohio State, and Oklahoma State to offer.

I'm planning on trying to visit Florida State, Auburn, Ohio State and Nebraska soon. I don't have any leaders at this point," said Moore. "Nebraska wants me to play either side - tight end or defensive end. Whichever one I'm more comfortable with. I don't mind either, but if I'm catching touchdowns I like tight end."

So what did Nebraska assistant coach John Garrison say when he offered Moore?

"Coach actually likes me as a possible tackle - that probably won't happen," said a laughing Moore. "He talked about the potential I have and that I could help the program."

In a recent Scout.com interview, Moore talked about what he would be looking for in a school.

"I want to go somewhere I can play early," Moore said. "Be like the first or second-string, press the field a little bit. It doesn't matter how far away, as long as I'm going to play, and the program fits me."
