Lots happening with Moore

Skai Moore has picked up a couple of big offers during his senior season and those schools have gone right to the top of his list. The 2013 linebacker of University School (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) just returned from an official visit to Wisconsin. Get the latest on his visit and his recruitment right here.

Since picking up offers from Wisconsin and Ohio State, Skai Moore has a top four which include those two plus Rutgers and Vanderbilt. Moore took and official visit to Wisconsin last weekend and said it couldn't have gone better.

"It was amazing. The game atmosphere was like nothing I've ever seen before. The fans are amazing, the coaching staff is great too, the players are cool. There was nothing negative about the trip, all positive things," he said.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound linebacker spent time talking to Wisconsin Head Coach Bret Bielema, as well as Linebackers Coach Andy Buh, and Associate Head Coach Charlie Partridge.

"They let me know that me coming in would be a great opportunity for me because Mike Taylor, the will linebacker that's leaving, I'd be able to compete for that spot. They feel like my athletic ability somewhat matches him as well," he said.

Moore also really enjoyed spending time with the Wisconsin players.

"I got to spend time with Devin Gaulden and James Adeyanju," he said.

"I played in high school with Devin, seeing him again was great. James was a cool guy too. All the players seem really cool and close to each other. It seems a lot like what we have at University School, like a family atmosphere. I enjoyed that."

Moore will take an official visit to Ohio State next, but the Badgers definitely made an impression on him.

"They're up there. I don't really have like a set order, but I'd say Wisconsin is probably one or two right now," he said.

Rutgers to the Big Ten

Rutgers is leaving the Big East and heading to the Big Ten, and Moore says that makes the Scarlet Knights a much more attractive choice.

"It's a good thing. It definitely makes it a lot more interesting for me. The Big East is really nothing compared to the Big 10. It's more competition and more exposure as well. It's a great thing that they're moving up," he said.

TCU offers

Last week, Moore picked up another offer – from TCU. He's not sure if he'll take a visit out there, if he does, it'll be in January.

"I don't know much about TCU, I've watched them on TV a few times. It seems like a good program, but I need to do more research," he said.
