It didn't take long for River Oaks Academy (Monroe, La.) wide receiver Vincent Moore to make an impact at SMU's camp in Dallas Sunday. After Moore blasted his usual fast time - he's been clocked under 4.50 at several events - the interest of SMU wide receivers coach Jeff Reinebold was piqued.

"After I was timed in the 40," Moore said, "Coach Reinebold got some info from me and he wanted to work with me during the remainder of the camp. I wasn't able to get as many reps as you get at some other camps, because it was the most attended camp that I've ever been to. I was really surprised at the number of people there.

"It went pretty well. I enjoyed meeting new people and competing at the camp. I was able to get a feel for SMU football and learn some new things. I learned some new routes, learned some things that would help any player. I really like SMU's offense. It's an extremely fun offense for a wide receiver, the way they spread the ball around and allow you to get opportunities."

Moore, who has been timed at 4.43 in the 40-yard dash, has two scholarship offers.

"In February, I started getting contacted by schools," he said. "I went to Junior Day at Southeastern Louisiana and coaches from several schools - ULM, Louisiana Tech, McNeese State, Southern Arkansas, and Nicholls State - came and watched spring practice.

"My first offer came from McNeese State on May 26. I was really excited about that. They're recruiting me on offense. ULM also has offered me and they're recruiting me as a safety. I'm going to Louisiana Tech's camp soon and they seem pretty interested. They are looking at me on both sides of the football and I might go to one Tech camp as an offensive player and a second camp as a defensive player. I'm a big fan of Louisiana Tech."

Moore plays for River Oaks Academy, which competes in the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools. The Mustangs appear to be loaded for the 2010 season.

"I think we'll be successful," said Moore. "We went to the semis last year, and we only lost six seniors. We got a couple of transfers that should help us, including Teshadi Talton from West Monroe. We should be No. 2 or No. 3 in the preseason rankings."
