CLEARWATER -- Countryside offensive tackle Tyler Moore, believed to be among the state’s top juniors, has scheduled an unofficial visit to Florida the weekend of Sept. 12, his father said Saturday.
Moore currently favors, in order, Nebraska, Florida, Ohio State and Penn State.
According to his father, Moore is likely to commit sometime in the near future.
“He will probably announce this fall,” Brian Moore said.
Brian Moore played tight end at Nebraska from 1983-85. One of Tyler Moore’s uncles (former NFL QB Vince Ferragamo) also played for the Cornhuskers, as did two of his cousins --Jay Moore and Kyle Moore.
"They're the leader," Brian Moore said.
A few months ago, Florida didn’t appear as if it would be much of a factor. But Moore grew interested after competing in the Gators’ Friday Night Lights camp this summer.
While in Gainesville, the younger Moore, a 6-foot-6, 290-pounder, will watch Florida play Troy, get a tour of the facilities and discus academics.
“He’ll get the whole show,” Brian Moore said.
Moore also is likely to visit Florida the weekend it plays Florida State in November. It has not yet been determined if he will visit Nebraska this fall.
