Recruiting: Moore Makes An Easy Decision

Pine Bluff (White Hall), Ark., athlete Adrian Moore was hidden from the recruiting landscape for a long time, but now that he has come out from behind the curtain with his 2,295 yards and 27 rushing touchdowns and his total offensive numbers for 9-2 White Hall this season he has decided to bring his abilities to Stillwater and Oklahoma State.

"I committed this weekend to OSU," said Moore. "It (the visit) went real good. I enjoyed myself and the people were so nice. The coaches were all great people to meet and be around. John Johnson of El Dorado, Ark., was showing me around and I kind of knew of him, so it was great to get to know him."

Moore truly was an unknown after missing all but the opening game of his sophomore season and all of his junior season. He broke his arm in the opener as a sophomore and sat out because of a transfer his junior season. This season he broke out on the football field as a primarily running quarterback out of the shotgun for Coach Joe Vaughn at White Hall. He is also an All-State basketball player in Arkansas that is currently averaging 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 4.5 steals a game.

Moore said he decision was easy. "I like the program," said the 6-0, 205-pound Moore. "I can get a good education, the players are all good people, and I think I can bring some fire to the table."

Prior to Oklahoma State discovering Moore and many others doing so as well thanks to his coach putting his highlights up on the Youtube website, he was being recruited by Louisiana Tech, Arkansas State and Central Arkansas for football. Moore says he doesn't mind being low profile.

"I never have been too much into that," he said of attention. "I just take it as it is and let that take care of itself. If they don't know me know, that's okay, they will know me."

Moore also was a standout playing limited defense at cornerback with 27 tackles and three interceptions with one returned for a touchdown. He likely will start out as a running back at Oklahoma State.
