What’s it like when you visit a college campus and you’re a big-time recruit? Countryside junior OT Tyler Moore found out two weeks ago when he was in Gainesville for the Florida Gators’ game against Troy on an unofficial visit.

“I went really well,” said Brian Moore, Tyler’s dad.

Do tell …

“We were watching warm-ups on the sideline and (Gators coach Urban) Meyer called him over, so he stood by Meyer the whole time,” Brian Moore said.

Later …

“Right before the game, before they went on the field, we met with Coach Meyer and Coach (Steve) Addazio,” Brian Moore said. “Before they went on the field, they were like, ‘Coach Meyer wants to see you.’ We were in his office for like 15 minutes.”

Suffice to say, the visit went well.

“They were fantastic,” Brian Moore said. “But it almost was sometimes too much. Sometimes they were non-stop with us.”

Florida was one of the first schools to offer Moore a scholarship. Nebraska is currently the leader for his services.
