Starting All Over

The coaching merry-go-round continues across the country, and the hiring and firing of various coaches from top universities affect many elite players. four-star defensive end prospect Kapron Lewis-Moore is one of those players.

Weatherford, Texas prospect Kapron Lewis-Moore thought he had found the right situation when he committed to Texas A&M in August of this year. That was until head coach Dennis Franchione no longer was the coach.

"It's been kind of rough, but you get through it," said Kapron Lewis-Moore of the coaching change at Texas A&M.

Lewis-Moore was solid in his commitment to the Aggies, but he's not sure what his situation is now.

"I'm keeping my options open," said Lewis-Moore. "I didn't know things would heat up like this. I've got all kinds of coaches coming by. It's really been crazy."

One school that definitely has the senior defensive end prospect's attention is Notre Dame.

"Yeah, I've been talking with them. I've been talking with them a lot," he said of Notre Dame. "I'm actually going up there on January 18th.

"Coach Ianello came by last week. I'm pretty excited about it. They were high on my list."
"Yeah," Lewis-Moore said when asked if he were strongly considering Notre Dame at this point.

The Irish could have some competition as a number of other schools are also coming into the mix.

"Right now I'm thinking about visiting Georgia Tech, Louisville and maybe Colorado," he said. "I don't have any visits set up for them yet, just Notre Dame. I'm going to wait and see what happens."

At this point, Texas A&M is also still in the race.

"I'm pretty sure," said Lewis-Moore when asked if still planned to visit the Aggies when a new staff is hired. "I've kept in touch with them. I'm just not sure what's going to happen there yet."

Lewis-Moore also hasn't set any timetable for making a decision on his college choice.

"I really haven't thought about that," he said. "Last time I said I'd wait awhile and I just committed. I'll just take my time and look at a few schools and see what happens. It's kind of like starting all over again." Top Stories
