Final Five for Moore

"I am on my way back to see Nebraska again," said Alonzo from the airport. "I am heading back up there with my dad and his friend.

"When I went up there the last time, I only got to see the locker room and some of the football facilities.

"This time I am going to get to tour the whole campus and meet with all of the coaches."

The return trip to Lincoln will be one of several excursions the talented Moore has taken the past month.

"I went to camp at Texas A&M and that was a lot of fun," said Alonzo. "I went to Mississippi State and Ole Miss last weekend for their camps and I had a great time."

On Friday night, Moore got the chance to try on a lot of different hats for the Bulldogs at the Big Dawg camp.

"Coach asked me what position I wanted to work out and I asked him if there was a position he wanted me to see me at," said Alonzo. "He told me he just wanted me to compete and to have fun.

"I played some at quarterback, receiver and defensive back. I had a lot of fun working out with all of those top players."

On Saturday, Moore did his best to make a positive impression at the Ole Miss' Senior camp.

"I worked out at receiver and safety at Ole Miss and I had a lot of fun there too," said Alonzo. "I got to talk to Coach Nutt and I really liked the coaches over there.

"I had never been there before. This was my first time to see everything and the campus is big and beautiful."

Alonzo will round out his college summer visits this weekend and then take to the practice field next week to begin his senior season.

"This trip to Nebraska is my last trip," said Moore. "I get back home Sunday and then we start practice Monday morning.

"I can't wait to start playing again."

Before Winnfield plays the season opener, Alonzo plans to close out his college recruitment by announcing his verbal commitment.

"I am looking at Mississippi State, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Louisiana Tech and Ole Miss," said Moore. "That's not in any order. Those are just the schools I am still thinking about.

"I want to make a decision before the season starts.

"Once I get back from this visit, I am going to sit down and start figuring everything out and then I am going to make my decision." Recommended Stories
