Recruiting on the South Plains | 2013 TE Gary Moore Commits to Texas Tech

US PRESSWIRE

Clarksville tight end Gary Moore committed to Texas Tech in what was a very busy day for Texas Tech and head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

PLAYER: Gary Moore

POSITION: Tight End
HEIGHT: 6'5"
WEIGHT: 215
FORTY: N/A
HIGH SCHOOL: Clarksville (Clarksville, TX)
VIDEO: Clip 1
RECRUITING SERVICES: Rivals 5.7 | Scout | ESPN 76 | 24/7 Sports 94
CUMULATIVE RANKING: 75.00
VTM PROFILE DATE: January 29, 2013

OFFERS | Arkansas St., MIssouri, TCU, UTSA, and Tulsa.

STATS | According to ETSN Moore had 48 catches for 695 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior. Add in 84 tackles and 2 interceptions and you've got a busy player. Every other site has Moore having about 27 catches, so that's a pretty big disparity. I have't been able to find any senior stats, but I'm guessing he's probably pretty close to that sort of production.

THE PLAYER SPEAKS | Just to put something here, Moore had a 5 touchdown receiving game against Jackboro this year, catching 5 passes for 142 yars. Pretty good little day.

SCOUTING REPORT | I thought the best video was this ESPN video. You get a pretty good sense for his athleticism. Moore is just a more physically dominant player at the 2A level. Moore is long and lean and plenty athletic. Moore is a tight end and he's a project, but that's fine. I think it's interesting that a 3-star player has only a handful of Division I offers and that usually is because of grades. Programs don't typically stay away from players that can play. Moore is the best kind of risk and apparently it was Trey Haverty that was previously recruiting Moore while he was at TCU. If you really want to look at Moore's athletic ability, take a look at this YouTube clip where he flies through the air dunking the basketball on someone's pumpkin head. Moore is a plenty good athlete and it will serve him good to get a redshirt, bulk up and be ready for next year.

I was also reminded of this article from Dave Campbell's Greg Tepper touting Moore and there are few things that would make me happier than to see Kliff Kingsbury offer preferred walk-on status to Canyon Randall's Collin Bowen (Hudl video) and Stamford's Hagen Hutchinson (YouTube video). Not even an offer from any program from either one of those players.

Gary, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
