Sierra's Moore has lots of offers

It was a little over a month ago that spoke with Sierra WR Carl Moore. Back then, the big-play wideout didn't have any offers but he was hearing from a "who's who" of top 25 programs. Now, after teams have had a chance to watch his film, Moore just reeled in his 12th offer and he's set a timeline for making a decision.

"LSU just offered me today actually," Moore said. "I like them a lot and I was hoping to get that offer in."

The Tigers' offer joins Moore's other suitors -- Tennessee, Florida, Auburn, Nebraska, California, Washington, Oregon State, Arizona, Arizona State, Kentucky and Missouri -- and he said he's narrowed his list of favorites just a bit.

"I'm still pretty open to everyone, but Washington and Cal are going to be the only Pac 10 schools I concentrate on," Moore said. "Other than those, I want to keep an eye on the SEC schools and probably Nebraska, but I'm not sure about that totally right now."

Moore was recruited heavily by Washington and Nebraska out of high school and that is a reason he's considering both of them.

"Washington was one of my first offers," Moore said. "They have a good offense up there and I talked to coach (Tyrone) Willingham and he said they were really interested in me and they would love to have me in their offense.

"Nebraska throws the ball a lot now and that's why they're in there. I'm a pretty good fit for their offense."

In our previous interview, Moore listed why the SEC is so appealing to him.

"I'm a big SEC fan because I'm just like a lot of those receivers out there," Moore said. "They're all 6-4 like me and they are physical. I really like their offenses out there."

Moore also said he had made some tentative plans to get out and see most of his favorites.

"I want to decide and commit before the season starts so that means I need to get out and see some of those schools," Moore said. "I planning on going to one of Washington's practices during August and I'll probably do that with all of those schools.

"This summer is going to be big for me and where I finally end up."

We'll continue to report on Moore as he gets closer to a decision.
