LA Harbor CC Defensive Back Byron Moore is a sought-after man.
Over 30 colleges have offered him scholarships for his final collegiate years after JUCO ball.
This weekend, Moore, a 4-star prospect according to Scout.com, visited Ole Miss.
Next weekend, he will travel to Ohio State and then he will visit LSU and Oregon State in January before making his mind up where he wants to go "on signing day."
"I have already visited Tennessee. Right now, I'd say UT and Ole Miss are at the top of my list, but I have three more visits to take," said Moore. "There was nothing I didn't like about Ole Miss."
Moore, a 6-1, 205-pounder with reported sub 4.5 40 speed, started rattling off the positives of being a Rebel.
"I liked the atmosphere around the school and the town. Oxford is a cool town and the campus is really nice," he began. "I was really impressed with how down-to-earth the Ole Miss coaches are too.
"They were straight up with me and I could tell they were not just interested in me as a football player but as a person. That means something to me."
Moore admits he is intrigued with playing in the SEC.
"The SEC has the best football in the nation from top to bottom. I'm high on that," he continued. "You always want to say you played against the best and the SEC is a challenge every week.
"It would not surprise me at all if I ended up in the SEC."
Being a junior college transfer, Moore said he is also looking at opportunity.
"Ole Miss needs safeties. It's a plus that I think I could come in and contribute early," Moore noted. "Being needed never hurts."
Moore visited Ole Miss with his LA Harbor teammate, RB John White.
