|Devonte Moore using his strength to shake off a tackler.|
Devonte Moore,a 5-foot-9, 160 pound running back from North Davidson High School is a rising junior running back who has all the physical tools to be an elite back at the college level. As a sophomore, Moore rushed for 10 touchdowns and also returned a couple of kickoffs for touchdowns. Moore is already off to a fantastic junior season by rushing for 123 yards and 3 touchdowns against division rival East Davidson. In just 3 games, Moore has racked up 4 touchdowns and 300 yards. Moore's elite-ability to make quick cuts and have good vision while running are what makes Moore a special asset for his team. Clocking in at a reported 4.41 40 time, Moore can outrun defenders with ease.
I was able to catch up with Moore for an interview about his recruitment.

Moore is in the early stages of his recruitment, but has been getting contact from schools like: Oklahoma and UCLA.AS the season looms on, I think he could be one of the most sought after running back recruits in the class of 2013.
