Texas three-star wide receiver Darnius Moore (6-0, 175, 4.4), from Tatum High School, has helped lead his team to the semifinal game against San Antonio Cotulla. Tatum is 11-2 and will be playing for a spot in the finals this Saturday. Last year the Tatum Eagles won the class 3A championship
"We're still playing so I haven't had a chance to really think about recruiting," Moore said. "After we finish I'll start to set up the rest of my visits and think about things. I know I'd like to play for a school with a good family environment and where I get along with the players."
Although he denies a leader, Moore favors Tennessee, Florida, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Oklahoma State. All of his favorites have offered and Moore already took an official visit to Norman (Oklahoma) on October 21.
"Oklahoma had a great year," Moore said. "They played very hard every game and I really like the coaches. I hear a lot from coach (recruiting coordinator) Cale Gundy. He's a cool guy and fun to talk to. He says they really like my size and speed."
Despite his relationship with the Sooners' coaches, Moore admits that it's Oklahoma State that is recruiting him the hardest. "They call whenever they can and are the most consistent," Moore said. "They (wide receiver coach Gunter Brewer) came by my house on Tuesday night and said that I'd be able to play right away. They said I could return punts and kicks and would have a good chance to start."
Moore says that the teams that have impressed him the most this season are Florida and Arkansas. "I really wasn’t expecting them to do so well this year," Moore said. "Especially Florida. I love how they throw the ball a lot and they have a great young quarterback."
He reports a 2.5 core GPA and a 17 ACT.
