Moore talks about OSU visit

ONE OF OREGON STATE's top targets, L.A. Harbor (Calif.) defensive back Byron Moore, talks about his fourth official visit, being hosted by the Beavers, whether he would play corner or safety at OSU, his timetable and more..

L.A. Harbor (Calif.) defensive back Byron Moore took his fourth official visit, and the elite JC prospect is winding things down.

The four-star was at Oregon State this weekend.

"It was cool, I enjoyed being with the players and the coaches," said Moore. "I talked a lot with Coach Heyward and Coach Banker. They said I'd be able to come in and pick whichever spot I want, at corner or safety, and come in and play."

The Los Angeles native said his time in Corvallis was good.

"Corvallis, it was different, but it was not too big, and not too small, and still had things to do," said Moore. "It's a lot different than L.A., but I liked it."

Moore said several things about Oregon State stood out.

"Pretty much the opportunity to play right now, and i know they've been sending a lot of corners to the league the last couple of years, so that's one good thing. The NFL scouts come through there to look at corners because of their system, and because they play so much man press. And they're good at developing their players. They get them to the NFL."

This week, Moore will host Tennessee and Miami coaches, and next weekend, he'll take his final trip, to Miami.

"I'm going to Miami next weekend and then I'll decide on Signing Day," said Moore. "This week, Coach (Justin) Wilcox (from Tennessee) and then Coach (Al) Golden from Miami will be in."

Moore is down to Oregon State, Miami and Tennessee, and Beavers head coach Mike Riley has already been in home.

The Hurricanes have an advantage with two former USC coaches on staff, both coaches that Moore played for his freshman year in Troy, Jethro Franklin and Brennan Carroll.

"It's an advantage because I know those coaches and am familiar with them," said Moore.
