Committed to Ole Miss on May 20, 2012.

 

Possible playing time in 2013: It is no secret that Hugh Freeze likes to use a lot of depth and fresh bodies on the defensive line which bodes well for Moore. Ole Miss graduates Uriah Grant and Gilbert Pena off the interior and will look to replace them through Moore and Lavon Hooks. The Rebels do return Issac Gross, Bryon Bennett, Carlton Martin and Woodrow Hamilton off last season’s line, but it will be hard to keep a guy like Moore off the field especially near the goal line. He will have a shot to see the field throughout the season and depending on how he adjusts, could see a lot of it.

 

Wrap-up: When I interviewed now Alabama employee Tyler Siskey when he was with the Ole Miss staff, he spoke of a couple players (without mentioning names of course) who are not ranked high on recruiting websites but they believe are four and five-star caliber players. After signing day it became no secret that Moore was one of the players being eluded to as a steal. He is a huge prospect who commands a lot of attention inside and can get good push into the backfield. He is not as quick off the line as Gross, due largely to the fact that he is much larger. His burst is incredible for his size and he allows the ends to make plays and get open lanes. With a lot of the recruiting attention going to the big name ends like Robert Nkemdiche in 2013, Channing Ward in 2012 and CJ Johnson in 2011, it gets lost how deep and talented the interior line really is for Ole Miss.
