Cre Moore (Broken Arrow, Okla.) has had a pretty good 10-day span.
Two Saturdays ago, he was named defensive backs MVP of the National Underclassmen Combine in Duncanville, Texas. During the middle of last week, the 6-foot, 175-pound cornerback picked up his first offer from Memphis – an offer that caught him off-guard.
“I’d never talked to them before,” Moore said. “The week before they offered, they met with my coaches and watched my film. Then, [offensive line Coach Vance] Vice called and offered.”
Moore is coming off a junior season where he helped Broken Arrow advance to the Oklahoma Class 6A state championship game. The Tigers completed the season with a 14-2 record and finished a point behind eventual four-time state champion Tulsa Union in the title game.
Moore said he has been in contact with Tulsa, Arkansas, Arkansas State, Oklahoma State and Iowa State, and he feels offer No. 2 could come from either Tulsa or Arkansas State. Both schools have showed major interest, and he’s hoping to hear from them soon.
“Arkansas State said they have an offer for me, but they want to see me run first,” Moore said. “Tulsa said they like me and they like my grades. They want to get me into a camp.”
In addition to being a rising cornerback, Moore also is a solid student in the classroom. He has a 3.6 grade-point average and has scored a 23 on his ACT.
