Elk Grove HS OL Steven Moore (Elk Grove, CA) verbally committed to Arizona over the summer, but reopened his recruitment following the dismissal of Head Coach Mike Stoops. The talented O-lineman was in Boise this past weekend for an official visit and says he would like to make his college decision within the next couple weeks. So, how did the visit go?

"It was great," he said. "I liked the dorms, the campus itself, how they're building a bunch of new facilities, and I got along well with everyone up there. Coach Pete and Coach Strausser were very cool guys and I could definitely see myself being coached by them."

"Me and my dad spoke to Coach Pete for a while," he stated. "He said a lot of good things that sound good to me. He said he recruits a certain type of guy for Boise State, the OKG, and he told me I'm an OKG. That made me feel good."

"My dad loves Coach Pete," he said. "He thought everything he said we just great," he added.

Moore (6'7, 265) says the recruiting philosophy at Boise State appeals to him in a big way.

"The OKG appeals to me," said Moore. "No one else has ever said that to me. Coach Pete is the only guy."

"Coach Pete and Coach Strausser just don't recruit any guy up there," he said. "They are looking for a certain type of guy that fits Boise State. If you are a good athlete and not their type of guy...they won't recruit you."

It'll be a quick turnaround for Moore as an in-home visit is scheduled for Monday night.

"Coach Pete and Coach Strausser are coming to my house on Monday night," said Moore. "I'm pretty excited about that. I think it just shows me that they really do want me and I like that."

"It's pretty cool to know that they actually want me like that," he stated. "To come to my house right afterwards really tells you a lot. Coach Pete wants to meet my mom and my mom wants to meet him."

Moore says the winning tradition and family atmosphere at Boise State are the two main things that stand out.

"The winning and the whole atmosphere up there is great," he said. "Coach Pete really makes it a family and everyone likes it that way," he added.
