Alonzo Moore did not have a shortage of big-time plays last fall. After playing quarterback as a sophomore, Moore made a smooth transition to receiver and running back last fall and posted some impressive numbers.Winnfield (La.) rising senior
The 6-foot-2 and 175-pound Moore had 49 catches for 1,246 yards and 17 touchdowns, and he also rushed for 591 yards and nine more scores.
"It went well and I am just focused this summer on being better in all areas," said Moore, who has been timed with 4.49 speed this summer. "I've been hitting the weight room a lot when I am not at college camps and I've been training real hard. So that part has been going good and I am just trying to get better at everything."
And speaking of those college camps, Moore was in attendence at Mississippi State's camp last week and then made his way to LSU and then Nebraska.
"I am going to Nebraska's camp this week and I felt I did well at LSU," said Moore. "LSU didn't talk about offering but I did well at their camp. After Nebraska, I am not sure where I might go the rest of the summer."
Moore currently holds offers from MSU, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Minnesota and Memphis. As noted, Moore put on a solid showing at Mississippi State and said he left campus impressed with the Bulldogs.
"It was a very good trip and very good seeing their campus," said Moore. "That was my first time at Mississippi State and it went good. Their coaches told me they are very interested in me and said they would love to have me playing there. And I like their spread offense, too, and I think that is the offense that fits me the best."
Moore added that he is in "no rush" to make his college decision and said his summer trips will give him a better view of the programs recruiting him.
"I like all the schools that have offered me already," said Moore. "And I would say Mississippi State is on me the hardest. I am just seeing who is the most interested in me and how I would fit into these offenses. I am in no rush at all and I just want to make sure of my decision before I pick my future school."
