Could UW Be Making A Move On Three-Star QB?

Over the past couple of weeks, things have picked up on the recruiting front for Milton (Alpharetta, Ga.) QB David Moore, a commit to SMU, and Washington could be one of the schools the rising signal-caller visits this fall...

"I'm still solidly committed to SMU, but I also am talking to other schools and making sure I made the right choice for me," Moore told recently. "Washington has been talking to me for the past couple of weeks and coach (Jonathan) Smith told me they are evaluating me and checking off things and that they could be offering pretty soon."

Moore committed to SMU back in April, but since that time, he's received offers from schools that run the gamut of college programs including some Power Five programs -- Oregon State, Illinois, Syracuse, Utah and Wake Forest.

"I really like SMU's program and their coaches there," Moore noted. "I'm still talking with the other schools though and I'm looking at taking visits before I sign, so I'm not completely shut down or anything, but I am happy with my decision right now."

As far as Washington is concerned, Moore is pretty familiar with the area as he lived in the Puget Sound region for five years and he still has a good amount of family there as well.

"I was born up there and I lived in Sammamish (Wa.) until I was about five years old," Moore said. "My aunt (mom's sister) still lives up there and we go back up there to see her sometimes, so I know that area pretty well.

"I feel pretty comfortable with coach Smith and they play in the Pac 12, so that's pretty big too.

"Coach Smith said they already checked out my film and I fit what they want to do perfectly, but he said they also look at the whole player, both on the field and off, and so they are hurrying to finish up the rest of their evaluation before they offer."

If the Huskies were to offer, Moore said he's very likely to make a visit.

"I'm planning to take a trip to Syracuse and of course I want to take an official visit to SMU as well," Moore said. "If Washington were to offer, because I am so familiar with the area and the coaches there, I am pretty sure I'd visit there officially, but they haven't offered yet, so at this point, I'm not planning on it but that could change."

Moore sees himself as a pocket-passer with the athleticism to escape pressure and be a threat with his legs.

"I'm a passer first, but I have enough speed to make plays with my legs when that's what I need to do," Moore noted. "I feel really comfortable as a distributor and getting the ball into the hands of my receivers and backs and let them do what they do best."

Moore completed close to 65% of his passes last season for close to 3,000 yards and 26 touchdowns while rushing for 500 yards and 13 more scores, leading his team to an 11-2 record. Top Stories
