    Ryan Moore: They are all recruiting me about the same. I'm getting calls about once per week from all my favorites.

    IC: Did you have a favorite college team growing up?
    Moore: No, I really didn't have a favorite growing up.

    IC: What do you like about North Carolina?
    Moore: I really like the atmosphere there. The coaching staff is down to earth and really seems to care about the players.

    IC: Have you been to Chapel Hill?
    Moore: Yes, I was there for the East Carolina game.

    IC: What did you think of the campus, the facilities and the stadium?
    Moore: Oh, I thought everything was really nice.

    IC: Is there anything that you do not like about North Carolina/Chapel Hill?
    Moore: The town was nice for a college town but I really like a bigger city. That is not a big concern though.

    IC: Who is recruiting you from North Carolina?
    Moore: Coach Brewer, the WR coach.

    IC: What are the most important things to you in choosing a school?
    Moore: I want to have a good coaching staff to work with and I want to be able to get along with them especially my position coach.

    IC: Does your family have a preference where you go?
    Moore: No, not really. They will support me wherever I choose to go.

    IC: How long has North Carolina been recruiting you?
    Moore: Since the spring.

    IC: How has your High School team done so far this year?
    Moore: Pretty good. We're 5-2.

    IC: When do you think that you might decide?
    Moore: Probably not until signing day.

    IC: Who is the best High School player that you have either played with or against?
    Moore: I would say Willie Green.

    IC: Have any of your family members ever played college football?
    Moore: My Dad played for Florida A&M.

    IC: Have your HS coaches given you any advice about recruiting?
    Moore: Well, they told me about certain coaches that were good to work with. They haven't said anything bad about anyone though.

    IC: Which do you like better, Football or Basketball?
    Moore: I like both about the same.

    IC: Is it important to you to try and play both in college?
    Moore: Yes, I would like to try and play both.

    IC: Would you play shooting guard in college?
    Moore: Yes.

    IC: Have you had an opportunity to talk to the basketball coaches at UNC?
    Moore: I talked to Coach Doherty when I visited for the East Carolina game.

    IC: What did he tell you about the possibility of playing basketball while on a football scholarship?
    Moore: He told me that he would love to have me try out.

    IC: Are you planning to try to attend a UNC basketball game on your official visit?
    Moore: Yes. Definitely.

    IC: Was part of the reason you were attracted to UNC because there are already two 2-sport athletes on the team now?
    Moore: Yes. It looks like the football and basketball programs are able to work well enough together so that two-sport athletes could have a chance to play both.

    IC: Ryan, what is the best part of your game?
    Moore: Probably my competitiveness.
