Moore Close to a Decision?

Alonzo Mooore

Over the weekend, Winnfield (La.) athlete Alonzo Moore visited Nebraska for the second time, and Moore spoke with about the return trip to Lincoln. He's also narrowed his focus from five schools to three. Find out more here, including Moore's timetable for a decision.

"I had a great time at Nebraska," said Alonzo Moore. "Last time I visited, I only saw half of the Nebraska campus. This time, I saw everything and I got to meet more coaches and players.

"I spent 90 minutes talking with Coach (Tom) Osborne. That was great. I also had a great time hanging out with Alfonzo Dennard and P.J. Smith.

"P.J. is a great guy. You can see he's a leader and a motivator. He has a positive attitude and his head is on right. He was honest with me in our conversations and wants me to choose the school that's best for me."

On his initial visit to Lincoln, Moore bonded with Jamal Turner.

"I didn't get to see him this time," said Moore. "He had already left for home. I was texting him when I was leaving to fly out; he pulled out to head home 12 minutes before I got to Nebraska."

Now that Moore had made two trips to check out the Huskers, where does Nebraska stand with him?

"I have a top three of Nebraska, Mississippi State and Louisiana Tech," said Moore. "They aren't in any order. All three schools are the same to me right now.

"Tech is close to home and they have a good team. Coach (Tommy) Spangler is recruiting me for Tech."

Is Moore planning to commit somewhere soon?

"I'm going to make a decision before our first game against Jonesboro-Hodge (first week of September)," he said. "We start training camp tomorrow morning at 8:30 A.M.

"I'm still in Atlanta right now. I flew from Nebraska to Georgia and I'm boarding the plane to Alexandria (La.) at 8:07 P.M. We fly out at 8:30."

Moore led Winnfield to the Class 2A quarterfinals last year, and the Tigers are ranked in the preseason Top 10 once again this fall. Moore does it all for the north Louisiana school, logging time at quarterback, receiver and various spots on defense. Recommended Stories
