Moore: 'My Best Trip Ever'

Rahim Moore has now taken four official visits. The five-star prospect hasn't been more impressed with a trip than when he officially visited North Carolina over the weekend.

"Man, it was my best trip ever," Moore said. "I love every bit of it. It was my best trip. I'm leaning down to North Carolina and UCLA.

"It doesn't get any better than North Carolina. The coaching staff, the players, Butch Davis, the vision that he has for the school – I'd like to be a part of that, the cute women there. It was the best college atmosphere for me."

Moore, a 6-foot, 185-pound safety from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey, has also taken official visits to Arizona State, Georgia, and UCLA.

This coming weekend Moore is scheduled to take his final official trip to Arizona.

"I'll end up taking it because I already have my [plans] set-up," Moore said.

Up until Friday, Moore hadn't been any farther east than Atlanta.

"It's funny because [North Carolina] looked like L.A. a little bit," Moore said. "How the music is and how the environment is. So when I arrived my mind was like ‘Am I still at home or am I in North Carolina?

"Some people make it seem like North Carolina is a way different place. It is, but you've got to learn how to adapt to it. I wouldn't mind living in North Carolina."

Technically, Trimane Goddard hosted Moore throughout his visit, but he was constantly surrounded by multiple members of UNC's starting secondary.

"I had everybody," Moore said. "I had Deunta [Williams], I had ‘KB' [Kendric Burney], Trimane Goddard – I pretty much had everybody by my side."

Heading into the visit, Moore was looking forward to attending his first UNC basketball game. He received that opportunity Saturday afternoon.

"The basketball game was no joke," Moore said. "I've wanted to go to a North Carolina [basketball] game my whole life. I loved it."

After the basketball game, Moore sat down with Chuck Pagano, UNC's defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach.

"Me and him had a good time," Moore said. "We talked about schemes and what he does and how he expects his players to be. He told me a lot like what I should work on to get to the next level. We also had a man-to-man talk, it wasn't just about football."

Moore's stay concluded in Davis' office for the traditional meeting with UNC's head coach.

"I had a cool time with him," Moore said. "I could be a captain as soon as I come in there. I'm real talkative and I can be a real good spokesman for them. He was talking about my leadership and how I'm real ambitious.
