Olathe (KS) North tight end Josh Moore is the most heavily recruited prospect in the Sunflower State for the 2015 class, with offers from all the headliner programs across the country. He's been progressing through his process very methodically, but in a thorough manner.
He's taken a number of visits to ensure he makes a well-informed college choice. His most recent trip was to Norman over this weekend to get his third look at the Sooners, who offered not long ago.
"It was great to see them again," Moore said. "I've been there a few times now so I know what I'm getting into for the most part. It was a pretty good visit once again. I got to spend about six hours with the coaches. It was really cool to hang around them and continue to get to know them more."
Moore shared how this trip was a bit different than the previous two.
"We watched some film on the tight ends," he noted. "I was able to see some of the different route combinations they use. It helped me get to know their offense more. I also was able to spend a good amount of time with Coach Stoops. I had seen everything before but the campus but I got to check that out this time around. I really liked what I saw."
A few weeks ago Moore made the trek to Stillwater to acquaint himself with the Cowboys' program.
"I liked that one a lot too," he stated about the Oklahoma State visit. "The coaching staff is great and they have unbelievable facilities."
"They've offered me for defense, actually," Moore added. "They see me as a defensive end. It won't matter what position I get offered for. I don't have a preference and I don't mind either one. They think I'm more of a 3-tech or a rush end. I can contribute with my pass rushing skills so it's fine to me."
Three more visits could happen later on this summer for the three-star from Kansas.
"I'm going to try to visit Florida State, Auburn, and Ohio State," Moore pointed out. "All of them like me as a tight end."
The Buckeyes have pursued Moore much aggressively in the last few weeks.
"They've picked up their interest in me a lot lately," he told Scout. "I talk to them a ton. They say I'm the main guy they're after right now. I'm not sure when I will make it out there but I'm looking forward to it."
"I like their offense and how it's very fast," Moore continued. "They throw it around quite a bit so I feel good about being able to make an impact in their scheme. Coach Warinner has been recruiting me, but Coach Hinton has become more involved. I've spoken with basically the entire staff the last few times."
Florida State and Auburn are two other schools in high consideration for his services.
"Coach Miller of Florida State is pursuing me," Moore shared. "He recruited me while he was at Minnesota before he got to Florida State. A big part of my interest is that they're such a strong program, and just won a championship."
"The coaching staff Auburn is great too and they're great to me. They tell me how I can be a star for them. I'm interested in getting a look at what they are about."
Moore will visit Missouri this weekend as a few of his high school teammates attend the Tigers' one-day camp.
