Moore Has Six Standing Out

The Fresno (Calif.) Central cornerback, four-star L.J. Moore, has the Bruins among his top six...

Fresno (Calif.) Central cornerback L.J. Moore knows that his next few months will be plenty busy.

Moore already has two visits scheduled, with Oklahoma and Notre Dame, and plans to take all five trips.

"I'm going to Notre Dame on September 22nd when they play Michigan, and then I'm going to Oklahoma when they play Notre Dame on October 27th," said Moore.

Those two schools are among six standing out to Moore, including two in-state.

"Right now, my top schools are UCLA, Cal, Notre Dame, Georgia, Oklahoma and Oregon," said Moore. "I will probably take all five of my visits. I know I'll visit UCLA for sure and I'm not sure about Cal yet, but I probably will visit there too."

The four-star corner doesn't have a time table set for when he wants to decide.

"I don't have a time frame right now, maybe at the Semper Fi game or maybe closer to Signing Day," said Moore.

Moore said one school is recruiting him harder than most.

"Most definitely UCLA and Coach (Demetrice) Martin are recruiting me the hardest," said Moore.

But while at The Opening, it was commits from other schools that were turning up the heat with him.

"The Notre Dame and Georgia commits were trying to recruit me all weekend," said Moore. "They kept saying ‘come to Notre Dame or come to Georgia' every time they saw me."

Moore was a part of Super Bad, who won the Nike 7ON, and played with his Central teammate, Hatari Byrd.

"It was fun playing with Hatari, it seems easy knowing you can trust the person behind you," said Moore. "The Opening was exciting, seeing all the top competition and all the facilities that Nike has to offer."

Whether Moore and Byrd, as well as Central teammate Johnny Johnson, continue to play together in college, remains to be seen.

"We definitely talk about it, but if it happens, it happens," said Moore. "We all have pretty good opportunities."
