Moore Commits to Ducks

The Oregon Ducks received their second public football commitment this week when during an interview with PacWest Football, cornerback Parris Moore announced that he will continue his career in Eugene next year. The announcement ended speculation in recent weeks that Parris was a lock for the Webfoots.

The talented Moore, 5-11, 170, 4.46 40, 4.27 shuttle and 31" vertical jump stars for Fountain Valley High School (CA), which is currently ranked #5 in Orange County. This continues a successful recruiting pipeline in OC that delivered Ian Reynoso (Los Alamitos) last year to Oregon. Some of the other UO regulars currently on the roster from the same area include Keenan Howry, Kevin Mitchell, Jim Adams, Rasuli Webster and Corey Chambers. Not a bad talent pool.

PacWest Football rates Moore as the #14 safety on the West Coast, he was All-League as a junior and PrepStar lists him as a All-Region selection. Parris is a versatile athlete who rushed for 800 yards on offense last year and has also seen playing time at the wide receiver position this season. Most teams have avoided Moore's area when passing, he is known as a sure tackler and savvy student of the game. He projects as a cornerback for Oregon. Moore picked the Ducks over Washington State, Colorado State and Illinois. The future Duck will officially visit Eugene on Dec. 14th. Parris is solid in the classroom with a 3.0 GPA and will take the SAT at a later time.
