Moore has USC out front after visit

January 21, 2013 

LB Skai Moore of Fort Lauderdale made his official visit to USC over the weekend and now has the Gamecocks out in front ahead of Vanderbilt.

"I was really shocked," he said. "I liked how the stadium was and the facilities, and the campus is beautiful. And Columbia itself is a great place. Everything was really nice."

Moore spent most of his time with Jordan Diggs, Ahmad Christian and Chaz Elder. He knows the Gamecocks have a need at linebacker and that's big to him.

"There's a great need at linebacker right now and if I go in there and do my job and learn the playbook, there's a possibility I could start against North Carolina," he said That really attracted me."

Moore is also considering Vanderbilt, Arkansas and Tennessee. He will sit down with his family tonight to talk about where to go from here, but a decision is not far off.

"I'm not making a decision tonight but we will eliminate some schools," he said. "We will figure out where we will go from here. I want to make a decision as soon as possible. I'm not going to prolong the process."

Gamecock head coach Steve Spurrier and assistant Grady Brown are to meet with Moore Thursday. He's not sure if he will take an official visit anywhere this weekend.
