Hybrid defender Moore commits to SMU


Defensive end Roderick Moore (Dallas/Skyline) has verbally committed to SMU, according to Skyline recruiting coordinator Jason R. Garrett. Moore confirmed the commitment via text message.

Moore, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound hybrid defender, took advantage of his lone offer. Recruited by defensive coordinator Tom Mason, Moore chose the Mustangs over interest from Baylor, Tulsa, Texas Tech and Missouri, among others.

Moore lines up at defensive end for Skyline but also can play inside linebacker. He is projected to be a linebacker in college. An all-district selection last season, Moore established himself as a hard-hitting pass rusher for a Skyline team that advanced to the Texas Class 5A Division I state semifinals.

Moore is the ninth commitment for SMU and the seventh commit from the Lone Star State.
