South Florida Wideout Talks Recruiting

Summer camps and combines are tailor-made for players like <B>Mike Moore, </b>the explosive 6'2 wideout from Coconut Creek, Fl.

One of the best athletes in all of Florida, Moore's skills are on display at every event he attends, including the recent University of Miami camp.

"It went real well," Mike Moore told StateFans. "[Miami Wide Receivers] Coach C.J. likes me a lot and he showed me attention. The way they talked to me it sounds like I'll be getting an offer."

Miami's often considered the premier program in the country, blessed with a rich tradition of winning and sending players to the NFL. At this week's camp Moore observed other standouts and was impressed.

"Dorian Munroe looked good and a junior named Myron Rolle was real good too," he said. "At receiver I was battling with Jessie Hester and we were basically the top two wide receivers there. We've become real tight after these camps and now we're looking at basically the same schools."

Moore's offer list is approaching twenty, with official offers arriving from Syracuse, Maryland, and Auburn in the past few days. However, five of his top schools have yet to offer, but he feels it is just a matter of time.

"I like all the Florida schools... I like Georgia and NC State a lot, and some other schools like Tennessee, Kentucky, and Clemson," he said. "The big three haven't offered me yet, but I think Georgia and NC State are real close."

Later this summer Mike will camp at Georgia and NC State, and another super prospect will accompany him on the trips.

"I think me and my friend Mike Greco are going to drive up to NC State and Georgia for their camps in July. I like Mike a lot and we're real close."

Could he and Greco, arguably the nation's most athletic quarterback prospect, be a potential package deal?

"We've talked about it, but I've talked to a lot of quarterbacks about what schools they are looking at," he said. "Me, Mike, Carlton Hill, and Jonathan Garner have been talking about what schools we're looking at so who knows."

NC State's a program high on Moore's list and he tells StateFans exactly what he likes about the Wolfpack.

"NC State recruits a lot out of Florida," he said. "I know Jimmie Sutton, and he goes there. I've talked to him about NC State, and he said it's real nice up there. It's easy to fit in because there are a lot of kids from Florida. The coaches are real nice, and I hear they have some great facilities."

Given that he's camped at Miami, has offers from several high-major programs, and follows recruiting closely, can we assume Mike has a favorite?

"I don't like naming favorites or anything," he said. "I'm keeping it wide open because I don't want any schools left out."

"I'm just going to wait things out and take all of my visits so it's probably going to be a late decision for me."
