Recruiting: Moore Says OSU Tops His List

Trading text messages with Tulsa Union receiver Tracy Moore and the text back finished with the words, "We did it." Yes, they did and they couldn't have done it without the 6-4, 220-pound Moore. Moore had a huge third quarter reception for the Redskins as Union defeated rival Jenks 34-20 in the Class 6A state championship win last Friday at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

Moore is still excited about it and is looking forward to playing basketball for the Redskins, but recruiting is keeping him from that right now.

"Recruiting is going really good, so good that the coaches won't let me go to basketball yet and they have me meeting with the college coaches every day," explained Moore.

"Today I met with Kansas and Missouri and tomorrow I am going to meet with Colorado. I am also making my first official visit to Colorado this weekend. On Monday I met with Tulsa and Oklahoma State. Coach (Gunter) Brewer, the offensive coordinator was here from OSU."

Moore confirmed that he is close to Union running back Jeremy Smith, who has already committed to Oklahoma State, and that he is also friends with Enid quarterback Clint Chelf, who recently committed to the Cowboys.

"Clint and I are close," said Moore. "He talked noise before our game with Enid, so afterwards I had to go talk noise back and we both like OSU."

Moore started to list a top five with Oklahoma State, Kansas, Tulsa, and then he paused. He came back with Colorado and then said he really doesn't have a top five. Those four he listed do seem to be the schools he will visit, at least for now. After Colorado this weekend he said he intends to visit Tulsa the next weekend and then OSU and Kansas in January.

"I'm waiting on Brandon (Webb of Owasso) and Jeremy (Smith) to decide when they are visiting so we can all visit Oklahoma State together," said Moore.

Moore finished this season with 71 receptions for 1,024 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also had a rushing touchdown. He also said he prefers to play slot or h-back over tight end in college. He is big enough to be thought about as a tight end but athletic enough to be thought of as a big wide receiver.

For now, Moore, who started the season vastly underrated, is enjoying winning a championship and his new found popularity with the college recruiters.
