Norfolk Christian (VA) linebacker/running back Kwontie Moore boasts 10 scholarship offers, including Arkansas, Connecticut, North Carolina, N.C. State, Notre Dame, Old Dominion, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Virginia, and Virginia Tech. There is interest from Georgia, Michigan, Oregon and Tennessee. Things are certainly picking up for the 6-1, 240-pound junior, who provides the latest on his recruitment.

Of the schools involved, Moore has taken visits to four – North Carolina, N.C. State, Virginia and Virginia Tech. All four experiences went well, and at one point the NCHS standout considered cutting off his list and deciding from those four ACC programs. He decided to keep his options open, however, and will wait to make his college choice.

Moore claims to be “pretty open” right now.

“I definitely want to take my official visits,” Moore said. “I want to try and take advantage of the opportunity to take official visits.”

Moore says it’s too early to say if there is a school or two locked in on his official visit list, but he is trying to narrow his college focus before next season.

“I’ve been talking with my mom, praying, researching all of the schools that have offered me and I’m interested in. I’m getting a feel,” said Moore, who hopes to make more visits this spring. Nothing is definitive, but he did mention Virginia Tech’s April 23 Spring Game as a serious possibility.

Both in-state ACC schools appear to be very much in this race.

“Virginia is real sweet,” Moore said. “Every time I go there, it’s comforting. It’s always fun to go up there. Me and [best friend and NCHS teammate] Will [Wahee] have lots of fun there.

“At Virginia Tech, the football environment is great. It was exciting when I went up there. It’s the same thing as at Virginia. I have fun.”

Certainly, Moore is enjoying success on the recruiting trail. It’s one aspect of what has been a year to remember. Last fall, Moore helped Norfolk Christian to its first VIS Division
