Moore is ready to go

One of the first Husker commitments is arguably it's most highly touted and important. Tyler Moore is the prototypical offensive tackle and was the second known commitment of the 2011 recruiting class for Nebraska. How did the summer go for Moore and what does he think about Nebraska this year?

Clearwater (Flor.) Countryside offensive lineman Tyler Moore is just two weeks away from a pre-season game. The Countryside team has only been doing one a day practices because of the heat and trying to stay fresh.

"We are in our fall camp," Moors said. "We are only doing one a day practices. I think that we are trying to keep it that way too. Our fall jamboree, which is a pre-season game, is the 27th against Jesuit."

Moore has had a busy summer getting ready for the upcoming season. Moore is going to give defense a go this fall and he's been doing his best to prepare for it.

"I have been busy in the weight room working on my overall strength and my stamina. One of the reasons I have been putting forth a lot of effort is because I am going to try and play both ways this year.

"I haven't played both ways before in the past. I would like to give it a shot to help out. I would probably play the one-technique and I don't think that it would be a starter spot, but I would be situational."

The 2011 recruiting class for Nebraska isn't completely full, but what the Nebraska coaches have going is a good start. Moore noted a good group going on the offensive side of the ball.

"There is obviously a lot of potential for us when we all get there. Obviously having two quarterback commitments is great and the four offensive linemen are all tight. We have gotten to know each other. We goof around with one another."

Moore is going to be looking for improvement on the offensive side of the ball this year for Nebraska. He's really going to be looking at a few different areas.

"When I watch the team this year on offense it's going to be about production, yards and getting the ball moving in a positive direction. In the red zone, it's about eliminating penalties, eliminating turnovers and getting touchdowns."

The popular pick for the 2011 class and official visits is the Texas game. Moore says that he will be coming up that weekend as well and thinks that Nebraska can get over that hump when it comes to beating Texas.

"I will be coming up for the Texas game, definitely. That will be my official visit. I think that Nebraska could do it this year and it would be great. They have had their chances against them in recent years. They've been so close and I think that they will get over that hump this year."
