But Markuson was checking in, letting Moore know he'd be by to visit Tuesday. The recruitment process has been taxing for the three-star receiver. He has a lot on his mind.
"I actually just got off the phone with Coach Markuson," he said, when reached by phone Sunday night. "He was asking how I was doing. I told him I was feeling under the weather. They're saying I'd be able to come in and have an opportunity to be in the starting rotation.
"He said he'd see me Tuesday."
Moore visited Southern Miss over the weekend. It was the first of two official visits he's set to make. Moore will visit Ole Miss Jan. 21-23.
"I'm looking to, I guess you could say, check out some of the things I haven't caught yet in the times I've been over there," Moore said.
Not that his visit schedule couldn't quickly change.
Kentucky, it seems, has emerged as Ole Miss' lone competition for Moore's signature. Kentucky's interest isn't new to Moore. The Wildcats have been there all along, even after he gave Ole Miss his verbal pledge in early August.
Moore is undecided on whether or not he'll take a trip to Kentucky. But he's open to the possibility.
"There's still, what, almost two weeks until signing day? Kentucky's still coming after me," he said. "They want me to come. I'd be able to be a big fish in a small pond over there. I don't have a visit set up yet, but it's a possibility."
Ole Miss is set to host well over 20 prospects this weekend, including, among others, four-star wide receiver Nickolas Brassell, four-star linebacker C.J. Johnson and four-star cornerback Jermaine Whitehead.
Moore admitted he'll be doing some recruiting of his own during his visit. However, in the end, he said, those undecided few have to make the best decisions for themselves.
"Really, I just tell them to do what's best for them," he said, "because, in the end, they're going to have to live with that decision."
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.
