I love recruiting kids that have Ivy league offers. I'd love to have a center with that kind of intelligence.
Agree with you. It also seems like some of UT's best centers through the years have been from the state as well. Scott Wells and Cooper Mays come to mind. Perhaps this young man could continue that tradition.

I wonder what the story is here. Kind of a late offer for an in state highly rated kid. Hadn’t heard his name mentioned in any pod where they specifically discuss in state kids.

Interior offensive lineman. He's been on the radar for a good little bit now. Coaching staff starting to expand and prioritize some IOL options rn. WIth that being said, Elarbee went to go watch him practice and offered right after. Clemson sniffing around like someone said on here. He's talking about setting an OV up here. Will also OV to West Virginia and Vandy. Will have an article up on VolReport soon

“I think the recruiting process has been coming in waves,” Moore said. “It’s been ups and downs. There have been periods where I get talked to by lots of coaches and there are low periods where I’m working on my own. Overall I think I’ve gotten recruited by a lot of great schools so I believe the recruiting process has gone very well for me.”

Moore got the offer he has been looking for as Elarbee delivered the good news.

“When coach Elarbee and I were talking, it was a more relaxed vibe,” Moore said. “He is a really chill guy and we were just talking about our lives and stuff like that. When I got the offer it was a great feeling because the team right down the road believes in me to offer me a scholarship to play at the University of Tennessee so it was a really great feeling.”

“It’s meant a lot,” Moore said. “In this area where I live, everyone is Tennessee fans. Game day is one or the biggest things, even if we aren’t down in Knoxville. I feel like the University of Tennessee has always been part of the East Tennessee culture for me.”

So what do schools like about him? What would a school get in him?

“I feel like even though I’m an undersized athlete, I bring leverage,” Moore said. “When I’m going against 6-foot-4 and 5 guys, I’m obviously closer to their shoulder pads than their shoulders. I’m more close to their chest plate so I feel like I bring good leverage to the table. I believe my speed is elite for an offensive lineman. I feel like my improvement is constant. I’m always working and even if my career is going perfect I’m still striving to find ways to improve.”

Moore doesn’t have an official visit set up yet but is working on getting one set up with Elarbee.

“We are planning on going up there this summer and seeing it from a closer standpoint,” Moore said. “It’s something I’m looking forward to doing. We just have to get a date locked in.”

“I’m looking for a school that fits my academic needs and can give me good job placement when football is over,” Moore said. “I’m looking for a team that hasn’t necessarily had the best season but for a team is improving and a place with good culture. A place that is like a family. I’m looking for more than a business transaction. Now and days the NIL is getting crazy and I’m wanting to go somewhere not for the money but because this is where I want to spend my four years and live afterwards.”
