2018 Yoakum (Tex.) running back Jordan Moore picked up another early offer from SMU this weekend and quickly made his way over for a quick visit after talking with defensive coordinator Van Malone on the phone.
"I talked to them on the phone. My coach and SMU's coach are really good friends so they had me call them and he (Malone) told me the good news," Moore said. "They like me because I'm tall and want me to play cornerback for them because I'm tall and would fit well in their defense."
The visit impressed Moore, who sees a lot of growth coming in the program and liked the current and future facilities.
"I liked it. I liked the indoor facility that they're going to build, the football field, the jerseys and I like coach Malone. He's real cool," Moore said. "We didn't get to see much, but I would say the theater room where they watch film was most impressive. I hadn't really seen anything like that before and it was new and stood out."
SMU head coach Chad Morris wasn't there, but the Moore got to talk with Malone, who impressed him early on.
"He's cool. He seems like a hyped guy. He runs the defense and seems like he knows a lot. He played at the highest level so he seems real cool and is a good coach."
SMU, UTSA, Houston and Tulsa have all offered Moore so far and it's early, but Moore was impressed with Houston in February the most.
"Houston stood out to me the most so far. They're really recruiting me as an athlete. I haven't visited with Tulsa yet and I haven't seen SMU practice though so that could change that."
The 6-1, 175-pound athlete says his physicality, playmaking ability and energy are key things he brings to a team. The sophomore rushed for over 1,000 yards, scored 22 touchdowns, had 32 tackles and seven interceptions on his way to being All-State at safety and First-Team All-District at running back.
Moore wants to have a decision made after his junior season, but before his senior year.
