A&M commit discusses weekend visit

It was the second visit of the year for Weatherford defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, but it was much more impressive with a packed house for a night game at Kyle Field. What did he do while he was in town? Aggie Websider's David Sandhop has all the scoop.

Weatherford defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore was one of the latest commits to the Texas A&M 2008 recruiting class that already numbers 21, but the 6-foot-4, 235-pound four-star prospect has quickly made Kyle Field a standard destination for his Saturday college football fix. This past weekend though, he brought a special visitor to the Kansas game – his mom.

"It was a big step to get her to come with me," Lewis-Moore said. "She's not the big rah-rah type and doesn't get easily impressed. She liked it though. She felt comfortable about the academics and she liked the coaches."

Lewis-Moore made his second consecutive Texas A&M home game and he noticed more interesting things on-campus this time around that wasn't necessarily related to football and athletics.

"I walked around campus a lot more this time. My friend is in architecture there so we toured the architecture building and some other places," Lewis-Moore said. "Oh, I saw the Bonfire Memorial. It was incredible with all the symbolism and how every little detail represented something about what happened. It's one of the most interesting things I've ever seen."

Once the game started, Lewis-Moore simply wanted to have fun and enjoy the atmosphere and the recruits around him. With the undefeated Jayhawks as the opponent, the Weatherford native felt the crowd was much louder last Saturday than the previous game against Baylor.

"It was a great atmosphere Saturday night," Lewis-Moore said. "It was much louder than the Baylor game. I guess it was because Kansas was a good team and it being a night game on TV. I talked to Wolridge, Dorman, Hyde, Furtch, and a couple of juniors from North Crowley. Everybody had a great time."

Lewis-Moore said that his situation basically hasn't changed. He's still solidly committed to the Aggies but also wants to see what happens the rest of the season and see how the coaching situation plays out. However, he admits that Texas A&M is starting sink in with each visit.

"Yeah, I'm starting to feel it there. It's sinking in and I'm feeling comfortable when I'm there," Lewis-Moore said. "But I need to see what happens and go from there."

Lewis-Moore isn't sure if he'll be able to make the Texas game in November because he normally spends the Thanksgiving break with his father in Memphis. However, he's trying to change up those plans this year.

"I go up to see my dad in Memphis, so I don't know if I'll be around to attend the Texas game," Lewis-Moore said. "But I'm going to try to convince him to come down here this year so we can go to the Texas game together."

Despite a loss to Mansfield Summit last weekend, Lewis-Moore had a nice game with two sacks. Weatherford is still in the playoff hunt with two games to play. Victories over North Crowley and Granbury will put the Kangaroos in position to secure a playoff spot.
