DeMatha defensive end-tight end Michael Moore sifting through more than two dozens offers

Michael Moore said that his recruiting “is getting a little crazy right now.”

The DeMatha junior, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound tight end and defensive end, wants to figure out a plan for the summer so that he can make his college choice before football season begins in September.

now is an assistant coach in Charlottesville. While the Cavaliers will be among his final choices, Michael Moore said, it is not a given that he will go to Virginia.

“U-Va. is going to be in my list, most definitely, but I don’t know if I’m going to go there,” he said. “I’m treating it like any other school.”

Sifting through “25 or 26” scholarship offers, Moore said the one school he definitely plans to visit this summer is Auburn. Among other Southeastern Conference scholarship offers that Moore is considering are Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
