Moore talks recruiting

Arguably the top wideout in the California JC ranks this year and possibly in the country has been Sierra's Carl Moore (6-4, 220). He followed up an outstanding freshman season with an even better sophomore season and he's set to take his second and third visits in the next two weeks. caught up with Moore recently and talked recruiting and gave us his thoughts.

"I had a good year, but it's not over yet," Moore said on Sunday evening. "We beat Sequoias yesterday and we have at least one more game and hopefully more."

Moore posted 60 catches for 970 yards and eight touchowns as a freshman in 2006 and this year he was even better pulling in 73 balls for 1,040 yards and 16 touchdowns.

"When we get in the red zone, that's my area where I feel the most comfortable," Moore said. "With my size and strength, it's tough for DBs to come up and defend me."

Moore took a trip to USC back in October and had "a great time", but his trips aren't over. He's tentatively scheduled to visit Florida the Saturday after Thanksgiving for their game against Florida State (11/24) and he's set up a visit with another Pac 10 school for this weekend.

"I'll be at Washington on Saturday for their game against Cal," Moore said. "I'm going there to check out both schools, but Cal is a school I've been high on for a while and Washington has that great QB up there that has really been lighting it up.

"I haven't decided how much I'm really considering (Washington) yet, but if I have a great visit then I think they will have a shot at me.

"Coach (Tyrone) Willingham and coach (Charlie) Baggett both convinced me to come up and check them out so this will really be my first chance to do that. They said they are building for the future and they need guys like me who can come in and make plays for them down the field and the fact that they lose so many wideouts this year, that's pretty intriguing to me."

Moore had planned to visit Arizona this weekend and he said that he's unsure if he will re-schedule the visit to the Wildcats or not.

"I'm not sure yet," Moore said. "It just depends on how things work out but right now I'm not really sure. I haven't really decided on who my final two visits will be with."

Moore expects to sign in December with the team he ultimately decides to choose to attend and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
