Josh Moore Talks Trip To OSU

Olathe (North), Kansas tight end/defensive end Josh Moore has seen loads of attention in recruiting that has led to over 12 scholarship offers. He has already been on seven campuses and will be on at least three more this summer. His latest visit was to Oklahoma State where Moore stayed an extra day to meet with Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy before going on to Dallas for a basketball tournament.

"Yes sir, I visited yesterday and then met with Coach Gundy before I left," said the 6-5, 250-pound Moore. "It was pretty good. I wanted to see the facilities and enjoyed talking to the coaches.

"Coach Joe Bob Clements was supposed to see me and he is recruiting me, but he got stuck in Dallas with the tornados down there. Coach (Mike) Groce (assistant recruiting coordinator) showed me around. I met with Coach Gundy and that was good. He talked about the program and how they would take care of me."

Moore said he has now visited Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Arkansas, and he has offers from all of those schools.

"I'm going to go to Florida State, Ohio State, and Auburn this summer," Moore said adding that he was in Dallas this weekend with his summer league basketball team, Yobo, for a tournament.

Moore, who is listed as both a tight end and a defensive end, had 13 receptions for 208 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore. He is very effective on defense and said he doesn't mind where he plays on offense or defense. He added that schools are recruiting him for both positions.

Moore also said he is looking to major in sociology.
