Defensive tackle prospect Julious Moore mans the trenches at the same high school that produced Cougars Eric Block and Jamal Atofau and helped fuel Bellevue's state title run this past season.
"Wazzu sounds good, I know a couple guys up there in Erick Block and Jamal Atofau is going there," said Moore. "Jamal told me coach (Paul) Wulff is probably the best coach he's talked to and he thinks he's going to get them back to the Rose Bowl.
"I'm going to try and get out there (this weekend) and talk to some of the coaches, see the school...Coach Wulff, he sounds good on the phone and he seems like a guy who expects excellence and is going to get the job done."
Moore has the UW as his leader and told Dawgman.com in an article published yesterday he nearly committed to Washington while on his unofficial visit to Montlake on Wednesday. His mom went with him on the UW trip.
"She said she liked it but she gave me some advice to wait before I start (thinking about) committing," said Moore.
Moore, who also plays offensive line for Bellevue, was named first team KingCo 3A for his work on Bellevue's d-line as a junior, one of four underclassmen on the first team defense.
WASHINGTON STATE AND Washington look to be ahead of the curve on recruiting him though it's a pretty safe bet he'll start seeing more interest from other schools coming his way before too long.
"The only (other) one who's showing me interest, Oregon sent me one letter," said Moore.
Moore said he liked the atmosphere while on his unofficial to UW and spent most of his time with defensive coordinator Nick Holt talking about his schemes and how he utilizes his defensive tackles.
"And I know a lot of people who go to that school," said Moore. "The coaching staff is pretty cool...and the way he coaches is my style of play."
