Lewis-Moore discusses new staff, plans visit

Kapron Lewis-Moore visits with Aggie Websider's David Sandhop about his busy schedule, recruiting visits and what he thinks about the new A&M coaching staff.

Weatherford defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore is in high demand, and not just from college coaches. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect not only makes time for the football recruiting process, but he is an integral part of the Kangaroo basketball team, and finally he has a part-time job at a local pizzeria that keeps the blue chipper very busy.

"I'm just here finishing up," Lewis-Moore leaving his job Sunday night. "I'm staying pretty busy with everything going on, and with coaches calling now."

Lewis-Moore quickly changed the subject to basketball.

"Can you believe it? We finally beat Mansfield Summit. It's been something like eight years, and we did it at their place," Lewis-Moore said. "We all played well. I had 13 points and 10 rebounds. It was great to get that win."

The Weatherford native is a force in the paint, averaging close to a double-double for the season. His performance on the court reflects his quickness and overall athleticism on the football field that has college coaches trying to pry him away from his commitment to Texas A&M.

That task may have become a little harder this week, as the Aggies hired former Nebraska assistant Buddy Wyatt, a move that sits well with the Scout.com four-star defensive end.

"When I heard he was the new defensive line coach, I got pretty excited," Lewis-Moore said. "Coach Wyatt recruited me at Nebraska and he's a cool guy. We hit it off pretty good. He'll do a good job at A&M."

Despite having a game scheduled for Friday evening, Lewis-Moore is taking his official visit to College Station this weekend, but it will start a little later than most recruits.

"I don't think I can get a flight down there Friday after the game, so I'll get there Saturday morning and I'll stay through Monday to get my full 48 hours," Lewis-Moore said. "I went up to Colorado on Saturday and came back Sunday night. I didn't like that. I want the full 48 hours, so I'm staying until Monday."

Lewis-Moore indicated that he's still solidly committed to the Aggies and is looking forward to the trip to hang out with the team and other commitments in his recruiting class, but he does have some questions that he'd like answered before he leaves College Station.

"I just need to make sure that they will be running the base 4-3 defense," Lewis-Moore said. "I feel that with my speed and quickness, I'm a perfect fit as an end in the 4-3. I don't think I fit the 3-4. To be on the line, you have to be bigger, or if you are a pass rusher you stand-up as a linebacker. I'd like to have my hand on the ground."

Lewis-Moore has previously visited Colorado, and is still considering a trip to Notre Dame later January. However, that could change depending on how his visit to Texas A&M goes this coming weekend.
