Texas Tech added its 25th commit to the 2016 recruiting class in Louisiana native Kevin Moore. Moore is from Lafayette, LA and attends Acadiana High School. I first wrote about Kevin Moore back in July after he released his top 5.

Acadiana High School (Lafayette, LA)
24/7: 86 | Rivals: 3-Star | Scout: 3-Star
Kevin Moore hails from our neighboring state of Louisiana. Recently Moore posted a top 5 list that included Texas Tech along with Texas, Arizona State, Oklahoma State and Louisiana-Lafayette. We all know by now that Kevin Curtis is pretty much in control of recruiting out of Louisiana and he's been doing a heck of a job. In a recent interview with Scout, Moore said that his relationship with the Tech coaching staff is great and that Tech has been showing him the most attention out of all the schools pursuing him. Moore is a great player, last year he racked up 148 tackles and 5 sacks. He can drop back in coverage or make a play in the backfield. In a zone scheme he reads the quarterback and has great reaction speed to the ball. If need be, we can even stick him at quarterback in which you can see on his film. If we land Moore Tech will be getting a great athlete.
Moore is still ranked the same across the board but I do have some 2015 highlights now of him. The Red Raiders secured Moore's commitment on 10/29, he then visited Arizona State last weekend and is set to visit Oklahoma State this weekend. I'm assuming this is him just using up his visits and nothing more but you never know what can happen with high school recruits.
