Moore exploring new options

DT Sydrick Moore has racked up a few Big 12 offers this summer. Is he still interested in SMU?

Van (TX) defensive tackle Sydrick Moore has had quite a busy summer. The two-star prospect has taken trips to TCU, Kansas and Texas State. In the process, he's picked up offers from the latter two as well as Houston, Missouri and Texas Tech.

"I've got a lot of new offers since spring ended," Moore said. "I'm really excited about all of them, but I don't plan on committing anywhere just yet. I just haven't really thought about that."

Moore now holds six total offers but currently has no favorites. Despite all the new attention he has received, the first school to extend a scholarship, SMU, is still on Moore's radar.

"SMU is a good school. They want me to come in and be a contributor on their defensive line," said Moore, who visited this past spring. "I had a really good time talking to the coaches when I was up there so I'm still thinking about them."

Moore doesn't plan on making a decision until after his senior season but knows exactly what he's looking for in a school.

"I want to go somewhere where I can be comfortable," Moore said. "I want to play for a good coaching staff and have a chance to get on the field early. Hopefully, I'll pick the right school for me in the end."

The 6-foot-2, 265-pound prospect is done with visits and is now focused on his last year of high school football.

In 2011, Moore notched 96 tackles and eight sacks as he earned First Team All-District and Honorable Mention All-State honors. The versatile Moore also saw time at fullback and has been working hard to go both ways in 2012.

"I've been trying to stay in the weight room," Moore said. "I think lifting will really get me better for the season. As a senior, I just want to be a leader for my team."
