"I think I played the way I wanted to play," Moore said, when reached by phone last week.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Moore caught 46 passes for 808 yards and 10 touchdowns as a standout wide receiver for Bob Jones High School in Madison, Ala. It was the second of back-to-back impressive seasons for Moore, who had 50 catches for 1,057 yards as a junior.
Frustrating, though, was the way his final season ended. His team, the Patriots, finished with an overall record of 8-4. But the season abruptly ended in the first round of the Class 6A playoffs.
"The only thing, as a team, (the season) didn't end the way I wanted it to," Moore said. "We were one and done. It was like Alabama and Auburn. We went up 21-0 in the first quarter, but got beat 28-21. We weren't the better team that day."
With the conclusion of Moore's senior season came a full-court press by prospective colleges vying for his signature. Moore, rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com, is currently committed to Ole Miss. However, his commitment isn't binding until he dries the ink on a national letter of intent.
"I have schools calling every now and then, but I'm pretty committed," Moore said. "Illinois has come after me big time. I'm pretty interested in them. I'm committed, but you've still got other options that are open."
The plan is for Moore to take all five of his official visits. But, so far, he only has one (Ole Miss) scheduled. Moore has maintained interest in two other Southeastern Conference schools, LSU and Kentucky. Both schools have offered scholarships.
"I'm interested," Moore said. "They're SEC schools. Those programs are on the rise. They compete."
Ole Miss had a disappointing season in 2010. The Rebels, after back-to-back bowl appearances, were 4-8 overall and just 1-7 in conference play. All the while, Moore, who committed to Ole Miss in August, was following along.
"I kept up with them," he said. "The offensive line was young. I think I'll be able to compete and earn a spot. Playing time is a big draw for me."
Moore said he is on track to graduate in May. He holds offers from, among others, Ole Miss, Illinois, Kentucky, LSU, Tulane and Vanderbilt.
"I should graduate on time," he said.
