Moore Finds a Home
While Marques Moore would love to see his senior season headed in a different direction, the senior defender out of Springfield, Ohio, has seen interest rise in his on-field abilities with a recent offer and commitment. "I committed to Kent State," said Moore. "I visited campus when they played against Northern Illinois and no matter if they win or lose; I really came away liking the campus. "Coach (Ben) Neeham is my recruiting coach and he's been telling me a lot when we chat on Twitter. They've also been sending me a lot of information and I started too really like Kent State. So I decided I was ready to commit and that Kent State was the right school for me." The 6-foot-2, 202-pound Moore has also learned what the Golden Flashes think about his future. "Coach Neeham has told me that he's looking at me more as a linebacker," he said. "Maybe a safety, but more as a linebacker and I'm fine with that." Moore's recent visit game him a better understanding about a program that has seen its football future climb in recent years. "I like their stadium a lot," said Moore. "It's not too big and not too small. I also got a chance to see the locker room and really love how their student section supports the team win or lose." For Moore ending the recruiting process is a major weight off his shoulder. "I'm glad recruiting is over," Moore stressed. "Now, I can finally call a college my future home for the next four or five years. I can also look to find something to major in to better myself as a student-athlete and person because I think Kent State is that school."
