Big Time WVU Football DL Target to Announce Commitment Decision Tonight



WVU Football DL commit Nic Moore

WVU opened Wednesday with a commitment and now hopes they close the night with a really big one. Nic Moore, a four-star defensive line product of Jefferson County High School in Dandridge, Tenn., teased his announcement earlier in the day.

Listed at 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, Moore is a high priority recruit for the WVU football staff. Moore is deciding between West Virginia, his home state program of Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

WV Sports Now caught up with Moore after his most recent trip to Morgantown.

At the time, Moore said the visit “went well” and he feels like he belongs at WVU, which speaks to the plan to make recruits feel like family.

Moore’s latest visit wasn’t his first time in West Virginia. He was actually on campus for an unofficial visit in early February. His first trip came a week after he received an official offer from the WVU staff, in particular defensive line coach Andrew Jackson.

Moore expressed how his latest visit was different from the others, going as far as to say everything felt more detailed and serious this time around. He also complimented the staff by saying, “everything was much more in-depth and clearer than anywhere I’ve been so far.”

Moore’s stock is steadily on the rise, as he already owns a four-star rating from 247 Sports and a three-star from Rivals. 247 even ranks Moore as their No. 8 player out of Tennessee.

Moore, who West Virginia views as a defensive tackle in college, also has experience on the interior of the offensive line.

Moore has 11 offers on the table, most notably from major conference programs like Indiana, Louisville, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, USF, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. Several other primmest programs like Auburn, Duke, Kentucky, Michigan, Notre Dame and Virginia Tech have expressed interest in Moore.
