Moore, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound wide receiver, committed to Utah on New Year's Day. He had already graduated from Blinn Community College, where he earned NJCAA All-American honors. The recruitment process, he thought, was over.
Then Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt stepped in.
"I really thought it was going to be a lot easier once I committed to a school," Moore said, when reached by phone Wednesday. "Coach Nutt is really high on me, and thinks I'm a tremendous athlete. He's sees a lot of potential and talent in me.
"I feel like it's back where I started from."
Nutt, along with a trio of fellow Ole Miss coaches, visited Moore in his home Tuesday night.
Nutt sold his program, even persuading Moore to move his official visit, originally scheduled for Jan. 15, to this week. Moore is expected in Oxford later today, with a tour of the campus, athletics facilities and academic center scheduled for Thursday.
"Coach Nutt tried to come in the house and sell me Ole Miss. He did a really good job of it. He really took the campus and brought it to my house," Moore said. "It was great that he took the time out to come to my house. It's going to be a big difference-maker."
Moore remains committed to Utah. He visited Salt Lake City in mid-December, loving everything about the program and surrounding area. But Ole Miss, to Moore, offers an equally intriguing opportunity.
"Utah is an incredible place – a beautiful place to live. There's a lot of stuff to do there," Moore said. "One thing about being in college is you're caught with the temptation of doing things you have no business doing. I just want to see what it's like in the off time.
"I love going out and doing stuff. That's why I loved Utah. But there's a bunch of stuff you can do to keep yourself busy. That's what I'm looking for (at Ole Miss)."
Moore said he will undoubtedly have a final decision made by Saturday. Moore, in his final season at Blinn, had a school record six kickoffs returned for touchdowns. He was also named to the All-Conference first team.
"I want to see what the school looks like," Moore said of his visit to Ole Miss. "I want to see how the fan base is. I'm not going to see all the fans, but I want to see how they treat their football fans there. I really want to meet the coaching staff and see how they are. That's pretty much it. Maybe see a couple of players and ask them how it is."
