Offensive line coach Joe Wickline is still working on building the 2015 Texas Longhorns recruiting class at his position and may land Galena Park North Shore offensive guard Tyler Moore in the near future.
Moore said on Thursday that the Horns are his leader. Over the last two months, the consensus three-star prospect has taken two unofficial visits to Austin to get more acquainted with the Texas program. Since the time of his offer by the Horns, his 247Sports Crystal Ball projections have all favored Texas, with 14 predictions now favoring the state's flagship program.
Listed at 6'4 and 335 pounds on his 247Sports profile page, Moore has been working to lose weight over the last several months and said that he was done to 315 pounds when he was offered back in June.
Now ranked as a high three-star prospect with a rating of 88 by 247Sports, Moore is the No. 7 offensive guard and the No. 60 player in the state. At the time of his offer, he was ranked as the No. 73 offensive guard nationally and the No. 123 player in the state of Texas in the 247Sports Composite rankings, but he's now up to No. 13 and No. 99 in those rankings, respectively.
His offer list has also expanded since receiving his offer from Wickline. Colorado, Oregon State, and Texas State have now joined Illinois, Louisiana Tech, Minnesota, New Mexico, and North Texas as schools to offer Moore.
Texas already has four offensive line commitments in the class, but Wickline clearly intends on bringing in a big group since Moore is still on the radar and offers went out to two junior college offensive tackles during the bye week.
