OVs on Skai Moore's Horizon?

Skai Moore

University School of Nova South outside linebacker Skai Moore may take official visits after he wasn't able to make a planned trip to Vanderbilt last week, and FOXSportsNEXT has the latest on where he could go.

A need to get home for a 7-on-7 event precluded University School of Nova Sout (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) linebacker Skai Moore from visiting Vanderbilt, and likely will extend his recruitment into the season.

Moore's coach, Roger Harriott, said his 6-foot-3, 200-pound outside linebacker would likely make official visits before making a decision. His top two schools are Rutgers, where he visited last week, and Vanderbilt, where he had to cancel a Thursday trip to.

"We had a national 7-on-7 at Bradenton, so he had to get back to that," Harriott said. He plays for the South Florida Express team that was in that, and he had to get back to (Florida)."

Harriott said Rutgers and Vanderbilt remained Moore's top two choices.

Moore camped at Rutgers last week, and spent parts of four days on the campus. The original plan was to visit Vanderbilt during the drive home, but the need to get back to play in the IMG 7-on-7 kept him from getting to the Nashville, Tenn., campus.

"He'll probably make one or two official visits and then make a decision," Harriott said. "He should probably make decision by mid-September, late September. I don't encourage our guys to leave money on the table (and bypass official visits).

"If you're a major recruit, a top 150 or something like that, you can probably string it out all the way to signing day. Skai is close to that, but he's not there. He could actually lose a scholarship (delaying) his decision. He's not going to wait too long."

Harriott added no official visits were set up, but Rutgers and Vanderbilt were in line for them. He added Wake Forest was also a possibility.

"We have to sit down and talk and make an educated decision (before announcing)," Harriott said. "I can't let him go visit somewhere and make a decision like that."

As for the field, it is easy to see why schools covet Moore. He covers well, has very good length and he accelerates toward the point of impact.

"We don't have any reservations at all to put him up against a running back or a tight end or a receiver," Harriott said. "He has great coverage skills. He actually started his career off as a wide receiver. He's an exceptional athlete."
