Lewis-Moore Names Top Ten

Weatherford, Texas standout Kapron Lewis-Moore holds 28 written scholarship offers and recently made a return trip to Norman to check out the campus one more time. One of the biggest things to happen recently in his recruiting is the narrowing of those offers down to ten programs of interest, something that he did recently.

While Kapron Lewis-Moore has yet to name any favorites, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end did recently pick ten programs from his large list of suitors to focus on going forward. One of those programs was Oklahoma, a school that he just visited for the second time this summer, and it seems like the Sooners have as good of a chance as any to land this athletic defender.

"Recently I narrowed my field down to ten schools," Lewis-Moore stated. "Those ten in no particular order are Nebraska, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Colorado, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas A&M and Notre Dame. I feel pretty comfortable with those ten schools and at this point it just takes some weight off my shoulders as I can put my focus on moving forward and evaluating those particular schools."

"I took an unofficial visit to Oklahoma this weekend and most of the coaches were out of town, so it was kind of a quiet time there for me," Lewis-Moore said. "I did talk to Coach (Chris) Wilson about my recruiting picture in general and then he went over their depth chart and how many spots they had open at my position in this class. I could definitely see myself at Oklahoma and would love to go there even if there was no football as it is a very nice campus. I am getting more and more familiar with Norman as I visit and it is the campus I have been to the most, so I am comfortable there."

"Coach Wilson was actually watching his son at a basketball tournament while I was there, so we talked a bit before and after that," Lewis-Moore added. "He and the Wisconsin coaching staff are definitely the two that I feel closest with and the thing I like about (Wilson) is that he is just real with me. We can sit down and talk about anything and everything and actually just have fun with one another. There aren't many coaches that you can have that type of relationship with, so it does make it special when you can talk to someone about things other then football."

"The last thing on the agenda for the summer is a return visit to Texas A&M before school starts because they were my first offer and have always been the school that has recruited me the hardest. As for when I will decide, I'm not really sure. If I find a place where I feel comfortable and want to be then I may just jump on it right there, so I can't really put a timeline on things now. I just know that those are the ten schools I am focused on going forward at this point."

As a junior, Lewis-Moore collected 50 tackles, six sacks, caused two fumbles and recovered three. He earned second-team All-District honors for his efforts. Oklahoma is definitely a major player in this race right now, however they will be in a battle with a few others from that list for his services.
