Oklahoma City (Okla.) John Marshall offensive (and defensive) lineman Tramonda Moore has developed into one of the most highly recruited prospects in the Midlands region.
National powerhouse offers have poured in and the accolades are adding up.
“Honestly it has been a blessing,” Moore explained of his fast rise. “I improved a lot. I am much more physical and play under more control at the line of scrimmage.”
“I improved a lot this spring going to camps and and learning some new things, especially working one-on-one with the OL coach at TCU.”
“It has just been a blessing to have a lot of offers and opportunities,” Moore continued.
The 6-foot-5, 350-pounder is now in the Scout National Top 300 and is a four-star prospect, but he was already a big-time prospect before his rankings rise.
Top colleges across the country are in hot pursuit and he is sifting through a plethora of scholarships. He has a handle on what schools are starting to stand out.
“I would say the schools that stand out so far are Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Alabama, Arizona State, UCLA, Auburn, and Florida State," Moore informed. "I have been on visits this season already to TCU, OSU and Missouri (official visit).”
"I have a list of about 10 schools that I have narrowed it down to, but I would like to get that list down to three or four by December."
With one official visit already taken, Moore will still have the opportunity to tour four more campuses if needed.
"I am planning official visits to FSU, TCU, ASU and UCLA. I still do not know 100 percent about Auburn yet."
At the end of the process, Moore would like to find a school that will benefit him on the field and help him take his game to an NFL type of level, but he is also looking for a school that will help him advance academially and beyond football professionally.
"I just want to do what is best for me academically and as an offensive lineman," Moore explained.
"A lot of it will come down to the chemistry that I have with the coaches. I want to find the right OL coach and the right strength and conditioning coach. I am looking for the right vibe around the school. I just want to take my time with the process and find the right school for me academically and athletically. "
Moore has been selected to participate in the 2016 U.S. Army All-American Bowl and could make his commitment during the broadcast of the game.
The 16th annual East vs. West match-up will be held on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The game will be televised live on NBC at 1 p.m. EST.
