Vols chasing dynamic DE

A guy who may be the South's premier defensive end prospect is being heavily recruited by the University of Tennessee.

Kyle Moore is a 6-6, 245-pound junior from Houston County High of Warner Robins, Ga. Last fall he registered 89 tackles, including 21 stops for a loss and 15 sacks. Blessed with 4.7 speed over 40 yards, he is getting tons of attention from college recruiters.

''I have offers now from Vanderbilt, Clemson, Maryland, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Duke and Alabama,'' he told Dave Peters of TheTerritory.org. ''Right now I like a lot of teams.''

So, which does he like most?

''Georgia is my No.1 team right now,'' he said. ''I like everything about them. Coach Mark Richt is real cool. I talked with Coach Johnson last week. I like Florida State Coach (Jody) Allen. I called him a while back and he wanted me to come down there but I already had plans to go to Georgia. Miami was my favorite team growing up. I haven't heard from them yet but my coach said they were coming by the school next week.''

Moore hopes to attend summer camps at Georgia and possibly Tennessee or Maryland.

He projects to qualify academically, based on a 2.8 grade point average and a score of 860 on the SAT test.
