NEO safety is one to watch this fall

After finishing a stellar freshman campaign that saw him wind up as one of the top ball-hawks in the nation last fall, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M S Devron Moore (6-1, 185) has seen recruiting hold steady for the past few months. JCFootball.com caught up with him recently and he updated us on his offseason as well as where recruiting stands at this point in time...

"Right now I don't have any offers, but I have been talking to a lot of schools," Moore said. "The ones I've been talking to the most are Auburn, Kentucky, South Florida, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Ball State.

"All of them have shown me interest, but I think they want to see me this fall again before they offer."

As a freshman last fall, Moore totaled 78 tackles and had an amazing seven interceptions while playing mostly strong safety for the Golden Norsemen.

"I'm pretty good at reading the quarterback and I can see the play developing and then go make a play," Moore noted. "This offseason I've been working a lot on getting bigger and also adding some weight. I want to be about 195 when the season starts because I think that will help me against the run a little more."

Moore enjoyed a solid prep career at Carthage (Mo.) High School, but was unable to qualify, so he decided to head to Northeastern Oklahoma to continue his football career.

"It was pretty close to home still and I felt like I had a chance to come in and play and make a name for myself," Moore recalled. "I mean, I had to earn it. They didn't just give it to me, but I felt like there was a chance I could play early and it just worked out that way."

Moore is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
