Recruiting Profile: LaRon Moore

LaRon Moore is a wanted man. The 5-11, 185-pound athlete out from Midwest City, Okla., is high on a lot of recruiting lists because he can help in a lot of different areas. A quarterback last season, and probably this season too for the Bombers, Moore could also be a running back, wide receiver and cornerback on defense.

He has clocked a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash, and as a junior rushed for 1,006 yards and 13 touchdowns on just 110 carries. That comes out to nearly nine yards every time he rushed the ball. He also has a decednt throwing arm, but few schools are looking at him playing quarterback.

"I really don't care where I play in college," said Moore. "In fact, I'm excited about this season because I think I'm going to play at several different positions for coach Wall."

New Midwest City head coach Jesse Wall, a former Bomber lineman during the Midwest City glory years, has said he will look in using Moore in different places. How those situations work will go a long way in determining if the Bombers can make a run at a state championship. Besides Moore, Bradley Dedeaux is another Bomber at tight end and defensive end that is drawing plenty of Division I attention. Oklahoma State has offered scholarships to both players and head coach Mike Gundy's past exploits at Midwest City, he ought to be able to get both Bombers to listen to what he has to say about becoming a Cowboy.

"I'm looking at Oklahoma State and and OU both," said Moore of recruiting. "I also am looking at LSU, Louisville, Texas, Arkansas, and Miami."

Moore doesn't sound like an early commitment kind of guy, but he is going to check out some camps this summer and you never know when a prospect gets swayed toward making a decision. With Moore the biggest decision may be not where he plays, but what position or positions he plays.
