Scouting report: The first thing that jumps out at you about Moore is his speed. He looks like he has been shot out of a cannon once he touches the football and despite how fast he is traveling, the game appears to slow down for him. His vision for finding space is impressive and in an offense like Freeze’s, he could be deadly in all of the space. With a good side-step, he is elusive when approached by a solo tackler. At his size, he does not appear to be an every-down back which is fine for Freeze who rotates backs a lot. Added size and pass blocking reps would transition him from a home-run-threat to a letha; every-down back.

 

 

Likelihood of signing with Ole Miss: He was originally a Rebel commit last year, but Mississippi State stepped in and won his heart. It appears as though that courtship has hit a rough patch. It as at no fault of the Bulldogs, but more of the love for Ole Miss and the Egg Bowl atmosphere that he experienced in Oxford. Despite an offer from the Crimson Tide, it appears to be down to the Rebels and the Bulldogs. There could be a crowded backfield up north, which could sway Moore to stay with his commitment. A decommitment from Eugene Brazley to Arizona State or Peyton Barber to UCLA could spell Moore to Oxford. Moore appears to be feeling the pressure of letting one of the schools down, and this one should come down to the wire, 60 percent Rebels.
