Moore favors two after TCU visit

1/22/2012

Jordan Moore (Lithonia, Ga./Martin Luther King) made his official visit to TCU over the weekend. And like his trip the week before to Auburn, Moore was impressed with Gary Patterson and his Horned Frogs program.

“TCU was great,” Moore said. “They have such a nice atmosphere and peaceful environment. I love how coach Patterson goes unnoticed. He’s so humble and he lets his work speak for him. He just does it. The quietest guy in the room is the richest guy in the room, and that’s coach. He means what he says and will do what he believes. He’s a little secluded and out of the box. I love him. And I just had a great trip here.

“I think it’s safe to say that TCU and Auburn are my two favorites.”

Under Patterson TCU has been one of the top defensive programs. Moore feels like he can fit right into their defense and be a very good safety in their scheme.

“They run a 4-2-5 defense and want a lot of speed in their secondary,” Moore said. “They will face a lot of Big 12 passing teams, and I think I could thrive in the box and play the run and do well in coverage. I think I fit right in.”

Moore will decide between Arkansas, Michigan State and East Carolina for his final visit next weekend.

“I will probably decide tomorrow,” Moore said. “I will sit down and talk with my mom and dad and see what’s the best one for me to take.

“I think I may wait until signing day to make my decision. Things are tight, and I feel like if I wait it gives me more time to come up with the right decision.”

Moore, 6-foot-1 and 205-pounds, is a four-star safety prospect who is ranked No. 15 at that position and No. 19 overall in the state of Georgia.
