Moore Will Wait Things Out

The former Arizona commit, Elk Grove (Calif.) lineman Steven Moore is now waiting till closer to Signing Day to make a final decision...

Elk Grove (Calif.) offensive tackle Steven Moore (6-6.5, 270), is getting a second chance at the recruiting process and since he opened things up in his recruitment, his options have grown.

Moore was an early commit to Arizona, but on the heels of Mike Stoops' firing, Moore opened things back up. Since then, Colorado and Utah had offered and in the last two weeks, Boise State and then Cal offered him.

The three-star took an official visit to Colorado this past weekend.

"It was good and positive and I am definitely glad I took a trip out there," said Moore. "My host was Daniel Munyer. Boulder was great. I liked it, it was cool there. It kind of reminded me of a bigger version of my hometown."

Moore said the facilities stood out.

"I thought it was really nice and I liked how all the facilities were there right by the field," said Moore.

Moore spent much of his time with offensive line coach Steve Marshall but also got a chance to sit down with head coach Jon Embree.

"I was with Coach Marshall pretty much the whole time but I had a chance to talk with Coach Embree," said Moore.

On Monday night, Moore had Cal in his home for an in-home visit.

"Cal offered me during the in-home and I'm going there in two weeks for a visit," said Moore. "They explained that I kind of came out of nowhere to them and slipped through the cracks. I camped there when I was a sophomore so I've always been interested in Cal. Coach (Jim) Michalzik came in."

On Tuesday, Moore will have two more schools coming by. Chris Strausser from Boise State and Angus McClure from UCLA will be in.

Moore said he's now focusing on four schools.

"Colorado, UCLA, Cal and Boise State are the main ones," said Moore. "I'm kind of stepping away from Arizona."

Moore has also visited UCLA prior to Colorado and will trip to Boise State this weekend.

"I'll wait till I take all my trips to make my final decision," said Moore. "I want to make sure 100% because the next school I commit to is the school I'm going to."
