The next Husker?

Defensive tackle Terrance Moore said in our last conversation that if he saw something he liked good enough on one of his official visits, he might just pull the trigger right there. He was just on his official visit to Nebraska. Moore told us if this visit fit the bill for his future.

We just talked to Louisiana prep defensive tackle Terrance Moore a few days ago as he was getting ready to take his official to see the big red.

Moore said then that if he liked the visit enough and the situation, he wasn't above just pulling the trigger right there. So, now that he's done with his official, did Nebraska fit everything he wanted to see?

"Yeah, I'm a Husker," Moore said. "I kind of knew that this was where I wanted to go, but I had to see it all to make sure. After I saw it, it was pretty easy for me."

Moore is a 6 foot, 5 inch, 285 pound defensive linemen from McDonogh High School in New Orleans, Louisiana. Moore was relocated for a time to Spring, Texas due to the Katrina disaster in Louisiana. After returning to his old high school, it didn't take long for Moore to get back into the groove, amassing some impressive numbers on defense:

For the season Moore totaled 81 tackles, including 54 solos, 34 of those for loss and of those, 14 were sacks. Moore also had three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and eight pass deflections.

Asked of what position he would be recruited to play at Nebraska, Moore said he would be playing defensive tackle with an emphasis on playing the "three technique."

As to just how easy a decision it was to go to Nebraska, Moore said that again, he kind of knew what he would do before he arrived, but was glad everything was what he thought it would be. "It's everything I hoped it would be, so it was an easy decision for me," he said. "Once I met with the coaches, I knew there wasn't any point in waiting. This is where I want to be."
