Recruiting: Moore Likes What He Sees At OSU

Tracy Moore has had a busy weekend, playing basketball for his Union High School team against rival Jenks on Friday, and then driving late Friday night to Stillwater for his official visit to Oklahoma State. We caught up with the recent Cowboy commitment Sunday afternoon while he was at the home of Brandon Webb, his cousin and future teammate at Oklahoma State.

Moore committed to Oklahoma State last Sunday night and then made the trip to Stillwater this weekend, although he'd been on campus enough the last few years to know what to expect.

"It was really good. I've been around there for the last couple of years, so there wasn't anything that really surprised me or anything," said Moore, who set a Tulsa Union receiving record with 71 catches for 1,023 yards and 14 touchdowns in helping the Redskins claim the Class 6A state championship.

Moore said the highlight of the trip was "just hanging out with my host Orie Lemon and the other players. It seemed like everyone who was there was already committed, except for a couple of players."

Moore did get to spend some time with offensive coordindator Gunter Brewer, who reportedly interviewed last week for the same position at the University of Minnesota. "I talked to Coach Brewer some... but I didn't ask him about Minnesota," said Moore.

Brewer told Moore that the Cowboys plan to use the 6-foot-3 1/2, 220-pound athlete as a slot receiver in the spread offense.

They did not talk about whether he would be expected to make an immediate impact as a freshman or spend a year redshirting. "Not yet... I guess I'll play when I'm ready, and I hope that's this year," said Moore.

Moore, who had just arrived home from the OSU visit and was at Webb's home early Sunday afternoon, said that playing with Webb and Jeremy Smith, the Tulsa Union All-State running back who also is committed to the Cowboys and made his official visit this past weekend, was a major factor in his decision to play at OSU.

"It's a big deal that those guys are going to OSU too. That's kind of one of the reasons that I decided to go there, and it's also close to home," he said.
