The 6-foot-2, 187-pound wide receiver from Madison, Ala., narrowed his choices to two schools in July, when he took unofficial visits to both Ole Miss and LSU. He did his due diligence, participating in summer camps and touring campus facilities.
But as the calendar turned to August, one school stood out when weighing his options. Moore had built a good relationship with the Ole Miss coaching staff. Ron Dickerson, who oversees the wide receivers, was a "down-to-earth guy," in Moore's eyes.
"I like Ole Miss," Moore said after his visit. "I think they have a pretty good school."
Apparently so. Moore, rated a three-star receiver by Scout.com, committed to Ole Miss Sunday. Moore becomes the 15th member of the 2011 signing class, continuing Ole Miss' recruiting momentum following 10 commitments in July.
Moore joins an Ole Miss class of wide receivers featuring four-star Donte Moncrief of Raleigh, Miss. and fellow Alabama native and three-star recruit, T.J. Worthy. Moore earned an Ole Miss offer following senior camp, where he turned heads against some of the area's elite cornerback talent.
"The Ole Miss coaches really loved me," Moore said.
Moore always intended to make his decision before his senior season at Bob Jones High School. He recorded 50 receptions for 1,057 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior, and also returned four punts for touchdowns. He had four interceptions defensively.
Along with Ole Miss, Moore held offers from, among others, LSU, Kentucky, Illinois and Vanderbilt.
