Even though Weatherford defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore had never visited Texas A&M, he verbally committed to the Aggies last month. On Saturday, the Scout.com four-star recruit finally made that first trip to College Station to take in the Aggies' 34-10 victory over the Baylor Bears. The visit confirmed what he thought about A&M.
"It was awesome. It was my first time to be at their game," Lewis-Moore said. "I wanted to experience Kyle Field as a fan and take in the atmosphere."
So what was the highlight of his Kyle Field encounter?
"I liked how the crowd did all of the yells together and I liked the corps people," Lewis-Moore said. "And I liked that saw-em off thing where everybody sways back and forth."
How would the 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end rate his experience at Kyle Field on a scale of 1-10?
"Oh, I'd give it a 300," joked Lewis-Moore. "Seriously, it was everything I expected and more. I had a great time and I'm excited to play in this environment."
The Weatherford native also had a chance to walk around campus, meeting a friend who lives in the dorms and eating at one of Aggieland's most popular eateries for students.
"I walked around the campus for awhile. I went to meet up with a friend who lives at one of the dorms and we hung out a little," Lewis-Moore said. "We walked over to grab a burrito at Freebirds. It was all good."
Unfortunately, things aren't as good for Lewis-Moore and his Weatherford teammates on the football field. Trying to overcome a large number of seniors graduating from last year's team, Weatherford is struggling at 0-4.
"You don't want to know about the season. We're 0-4," Lewis-Moore said. "We lost 49 seniors from last year and only 12 of us returned. Plus, we have a new coaching staff and we're learning new schemes. We're improving each week, but we're young."
Individually, the A&M commit is having an impact on the field. Teams consistently run away from him and utilize quick passes to negate his pass rush abilities. Still, he has managed to register three sacks, 17 tackles, and five tackles for losses.
"I'm doing pretty good considering that teams try to avoid me. That creates opportunities for other guys on our defense," Lewis-Moore. "The other team also throws quick timing routes to avoid the pass rush."
Having recently committed to A&M, Lewis-Moore is just now getting to know other verbal commits in this A&M class, and is looking forward to playing with this group in the coming four years.
"I saw Tommy Dorman, Andrew Wolridge, and Kyle Mangan at the game and we had a good time," Lewis-Moore said. "Tommy and I text message each other 2-3 times a week seeing how things are going."
Lewis-Moore says he still gets calls from college coaches, most notably Baylor and Colorado, but he's solid to the Aggies and his visit this weekend certainly helped solidify his choice.
"It was a good time," Lewis-Moore said. "I'm definitely coming back for the Texas game. You can mark that down. I wouldn't miss it."
