"I felt it was a great place for me, for both school and football," said Moore, who also held offers from New Mexico and Iowa State. "When I took my official visit there I was cool with the coaches and players. I see myself fitting right in with the offense."

Moore rushed for 18 touchdowns and had nearly 1,500 yards as a senior last season. The workhorse had over 1,600 yards and 23 touchdowns as a junior.

Bishop Amat teammate Ajee Montes, a defensive back, will sign with Southern Methodist, according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.
