Recruiting: Cordero Moore

This report was filed by Andrew Bone of

Cordero Moore is one of the top defensive lineman in the state of Texas. Moore recently named Alabama as one of his favorites. Alabama sent coach Paul Randolph to visit with Moore Tuesday night.

"Coach Randolph came here last night about 10 p.m. He stayed and talked with me for about an hour and a half. It went really well," said Cordero Moore.

This was Alabama's second in-home visit with the three star defensive lineman.

"I really like the Alabama coaches. Coach Shula and coach Kines came a couple of weeks ago. Coach Randolph came by himself last night. Coach Randolph is really nice. He is a cool person and down to earth. I would play for him."

The Alabama coaching staff has made a strong impression. A big turn around from several weeks ago.

"I am very interested in Alabama. They are one of my favorites. I don't have an overall favorite, but my top four are Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Alabama, and Arkansas. They are all equal right now," said Moore.

Though Moore has yet to visit Tuscaloosa, Moore knows why Alabama has catapulted as a strong contender for his signature.

"It's the coaches. I have now been able to meet with coach Shula, coach Ball, and coach Randolph. They are all great guys and really nice. I am excited about going on my visit January 7."

Moore does plan to take all of his visits before a final decision is reached.

"I am going to take all my visits. All the coaches I have met have been great. I want to be able to meet the players and find out everything about the school."

Until official visits start for Moore in January, playing on the basketball team is his main focus.

"I am playing basketball. I got off to a slow start the first four games, but now I am getting back to my regular self. I will not be taking anymore visits until January and that first visit is to Alabama," said Moore.
