6-2, 205-pound Louisville (MS) quarterback Clayton Moore indicated in early May that Virginia Tech had verbally offered a scholarship with the official one perhaps coming later in the month. Virginia Tech quarterbacks coach Mike O’Cain did make the trip to Louisville to see a spring practice, but does Moore now have an offer?
“No. I didn’t [get the official offer],” Moore answered. “Coach O’Cain came in and came to watch me practice. I didn’t have a good practice, so it has been one of those ordeals where I haven’t heard from him since. Since I didn’t have a very good practice, I don’t think it will work out. I’m interested in them, but I haven’t heard from them since that day. It was just one of those days.
“It is no big deal, though. I just have to keep on going. I’m taking it step by step.”
As Moore mentioned, he would be interested if Virginia Tech continued to show heavy interest and especially if the Hokies came in with an offer. But, at the same time, he is prepared to focus on other schools if that is not the case. In fact, Moore is currently on an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State, which is one of 17 scholarship offers the junior signal caller holds.
“It is going well,” Moore said of the visit.
Moore, who does not know when a decision may come and did not name any favorite schools, knows of at least two camp destinations this summer. He expects to attend more than just two, though.
“I’m going to Mississippi, but I’ll be going to several others as well. I haven’t decided which ones,” Moore said. “I’ll be going to the Elite 11 Quarterback Camp in Eugene, Oregon. I know I’m going there. I’ll tour Oregon while I’m over there.
“Right now, I’m just taking it step by step. I don’t have any set plans.”
Moore totaled 3,890 yards of offense, including 3,046 yards passing and 844 yards rushing, last season as a junior. He had 30 touchdowns passes and 10 rushing touchdowns in leading his team to a state championship.
