Looking for Stability
Adonis Ameen-Moore, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound three-star running back from Mullen High School in Denver, Colo., has had a relative quiet summer as he did not attend any camps or visit any colleges. Ameen-Moore, ranked as the No. 68 running back in the country by Scout.com, still denies a leader but favors Colorado, Colorado State, Kansas State, Northwestern and Syracuse. All five have offered him and he does not have any other offers. He has already scheduled an official visit to Syracuse on Oct. 16 when the Orangemen take on Pittsburgh. "I like the coaches a lot," he said about the Syracuse staff. "I've got a great relationship with the offensive line coach (Greg Adkins) and the running backs coach (Tyrone Wheatley). They're great guys." His friend and former teammate, quarterback Jonny Miller, signed with Syracuse in February. "That's a plus," he said about having his former teammate there. "That definitely helps them." Besides Syracuse, the only other school that he hasn't visited yet is Northwestern. He's already been to Colorado, Colorado State and Kansas State. "I'm hoping these schools start showing some improvement," he said. "I'd like to see them win and get going in the right direction." He says he thinks Kansas State has a good chance to rebuild under coach Bill Snyder. "It's great that coach Snyder is back," he said. "He's a great coach, but the only problem is I don't really know how long he'll be there." Coaching stability is something that Ameen-Moore says he's looking for. "I'd like to play for the same coach that recruits me," he said. Ameen-Moore says he likes the idea of Colorado moving to the Pac-10. "I think that's a good move for them," he said. "I think they'll do a good job there. I liked the Big 12, but the Pac-10 is a great conference too and it'll be interesting to see how they do." Although Ameen-Moore lists the Buffaloes in his top five, he admits he doesn't think they're a good fit because of how little they run the ball. "I'd like to go somewhere that runs the ball a lot," he said. "I don't think Colorado runs the ball enough for my style." Another Pac-10 team that Ameen-Moore says he's heard from is USC. "They said they like me and that they'll be following me this season," he said. "They didn't say anything about a scholarship yet." He says he plans to make a December decision. "I'll check out the depth chart because I'd like to play early," he said about his main criteria. Mullen High School opens their 2010 season on Sept. 3 at Chaparral High School in Parker, Colo. He reports a 3.0 core GPA and 19 ACT.
