Moore Making The Rounds

Moore Making The Rounds

Haddonfield (N.J.) Paul VI cornerback Lonnie Moore looked good during several camp/combine stints and is a class of 2016 prospect worth keeping an eye on.

Haddonfield (N.J.) Paul VI cornerback Lonnie Moore camp stops at Temple and Rutgers went well, and he has one coming up at Penn State.

And while Moore is yet to earn an offer, the combination of speed, change of direction and hip flexibility make him one to watch in the 2016 class.

Moore is also hearing from Virginia Tech, Indiana and Syracuse.

“I like to see how the coaches are, how the facilities are and what it’s like around campus,” the 5-foot-9, 160-pound Moore said. “I’ve been in the weight room a lot because I know that’s something I really need to work on, and make sure I get my weight up. I’ll work on my speed also. Even though I’m pretty fast, I know I can get faster, so I want to get my 40 time down.”

When Moore participated in the Rutgers 7-on-7 passing camp late last month, several of the coaches watched him in the semifinals and final, including his recruiter, secondary coach Darryl Wilson.

“I talked to coach Wilson and he was saying he likes me,” Moore said. “He came by my school and he was expressing interest. I came to their camp and I walk to him after the camp also. He seems like he likes me, so we’ll see where it goes from there.”

On July 26, Moore will return to Penn State, where he last visited for the game against Michigan in the fall.

“I’ve been in communication with coach (James) Franklin,” Moore said. “The facilities there are amazing. The fan base was incredible. It was nice but I want to see what the new coaches are going to bring to the table now.”

Moore already made an impact at Temple, where he met coach Matt Rhule. With Temple’s campus less than 30 minutes from Moore’s school, it is a place he can get to easily, and his family can watch him play.

“The coaches are really liking me,” Moore said. “I was talking to the head coach and he was saying he really liked me. They took us to a special place during camp and we were just working out, and he was saying he’s going to stay in contact with me.” Recommended Stories
