Lewis-Moore Discusses Recruiting Status

Texas A&M commitment Kapron Lewis-Moore has moved straight into basketball season, but that hasn't stopped schools from pursuing the four star prospect. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop spoke to Lewis-Moore Wednesday night about the recruiting process and his current status with Texas A&M.

Football season may have ended recently for Weatherford defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, but that doesn't mean his schedule has slowed down. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound blue chip prospect has moved straight into basketball season where he's a standout on the hard court.

"I'm a double-double guy (points and rebounds)," joked Lewis-Moore. "I like playing physical inside and going after the rebound and getting the put-back. I've got some post-up moves too."

His success in basketball highlights his versatility and his overall athleticism that will translate well on the collegiate football field. While the Scout.com four-star prospect has been committed to Texas A&M for several months, his abilities are too good for other schools to pass up.

"Man, it's getting crazy. I've got a bunch of coaches calling and stopping by the house and the school," Lewis-Moore said. "I'm hearing most from Notre Dame, Kansas, Colorado, and Texas Tech."

With the coaching transition at Texas A&M along with the interest from other schools, where does Lewis-Moore stand in the recruiting process and what's his commitment status with the Aggies?

"I'm still committed to Texas A&M, but I need to keep my options open until I speak with the new coaching staff at A&M and see if I'm comfortable around them and that they think I fit their system."

While Lewis-Moore hasn't spoken to new head coach Mike Sherman (who's still finishing his duties as OC in the NFL), he's heard a lot of good things about the one-time Green Bay Packer head coach and current Houston Texans offensive coordinator.

"I think he's a good hire. He knows what it takes to get to the NFL," Lewis-Moore said. "I just need to meet with him and the new staff and make sure we're all on the same page."

The Weatherford native will continue to engage in the recruiting process. He's scheduled one visit in January and is contemplating taking a few more, although basketball will make that difficult to schedule.

"I've got Notre Dame scheduled on January 18. That's it for now," Lewis-Moore said. "I'm thinking about visiting Kansas, Colorado, and Texas Tech, but I just don't know right now. I'm just chillin' and waiting to talk to somebody from A&M and I've got basketball too. But it's all good."

Lewis-Moore and his teammates will be looking to defend its title at this year's Kangaroo Classic hosted by Weatherford. The tournament runs from Thursday-Saturday and will feature teams like Lubbock Coronado, A&M Consolidated, Frenship, and of course host Weatherford among others.
