Bluegrass State WR visits Gamecocks

Bowling Green (KY) 3-star wide receiver D.L. Moore made an official visit to South Carolina over the weekend, and the big receiver prospect came away impressed with what the Gamecocks have to offer. Where does USC stand with the elite Bluegrass State target following his time in Columbia. Read inside to find out.

The 6'6", 185 pound Moore, who runs a 4.6 second forty yard dash, said he had a great time at South Carolina over the weekend and rated his experience in Columbia as a perfect '10.'

"I visited South Carolina this weekend," said Moore. "It went well. I got to meet the coaches and the players, and I felt like I had chemistry with them. I saw the campus and chilled with the players. I got to see what things they do around the campus and everything. All around it was a nice place. It was a '10' for sure."

Moore is being recruited by Coach John Hunt for the Gamecocks, but he spent much of the weekend interacting with Steve Spurrier Jr., his potential position coach at USC.

"I mainly talked with Steve Spurrier Jr. He was telling me what things I can help out with when I come, if I come to their school. He told me that I reminded him of Sidney Rice with some of the things I've done. He said they're looking for a big receiver, someone that can help out Kenny (McKinley). He said I can catch and do the main things that wide receivers can do."

The athletic receiver prospect was hosted on his visit by South Carolina freshman wide receiver Dion Lecorn, and the two hit it off well, according to Moore.

"Dion was my player host. He was a cool person. He was nice to be around. He showed me around the place and told me what it's like around there."

Moore, who also holds offers from Kentucky, Purdue, Nebraska, Colorado, Cincinnati and others, is not yet ready to name any favorites in the race for his services, as he plans to take all five of his official visits before making a decision.

"I don't have any favorites right now. I'll probably make (a commitment) after all five of my visits."

When it comes time to make a commitment, Moore said he will look for a few key factors to help him decide on his college choice.

"Chemistry with the coaches and players. And mainly the location, because my family is going to move wherever I go."

Moore, who racked up 28 receptions for 468 yards and 3 touchdowns as a junior last season, said he plans to visit Purdue in the coming weeks, and he also hopes to set up a visit with Nebraska. He is undecided on who will receive his remaining visits.
