It appears that Oklahoma State has jumped in to recruiting another nationally ranked high school defensive lineman. Kyle Moore is a 6-foot-7, 250-pound defensive end out of Houston County High School in Georgia. He is considered the 12th best prospect in Georgia and an All-American by SuperPrep Magazine.
Moore has 4.7 speed in the 40-yard dash and has a bench press max of 340 pounds. Last season he had 87 tackles, 21 tackles for losses and 15 sacks. This season he is off to a good start with two sacks and five pass defelections. Houston County lost its game last week 31-29, but have important games coming up with Liberty and Nosthside.
Moore gave me this list of schools in a phone interview. He is considering USC, Georgia, Miami, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. I asked him how strong he was considering the Oklahoma schools.
"Yes, I am interested in both schools," said Moore. "They both have good defenses and good defensive coordinators. I'm not anywhere near a decision. I know I am going to visit USC and Michigan, but after that I am up in the air."
Moore said he is still enjoying the recruiting process, and he likes talking to coaches.
"I know it will eventually get old, but I like talking to the different coaches and hearing what they think," added Moore.
Moore is a defensive end for now, but with that frame could find himself moving inside in the future.
