Bio

Position: Linebacker

Previous College: None

Projection: Second-String

Status: On Scholarship

Charmeachealle "Mike" Moore II (b. Jan. 30, 1993) was the only scholarship linebacker in K-State's 2011 class, but he's a very promising specimen who hails from the powerhouse Dallas Skyline program.

Linebacker wasn't a huge need in that class, so the coaches had the luxury of taking only the guy(s) they really wanted. They chose Moore. That should tell us something. So should these highlights. And these.

So should the fact that Skyline also sent linebackers to Oklahoma and Oregon last year. And Moore previously was committed to Minnesota, before decommitting in the wake of Tim Brewster's ouster.

Luckily, our depth at the position last year allowed Moore time to grayshirt and adapt to college. He definitely needs to put on some more weight. As a middle linebacker, he'll be counted upon to replace Arthur Brown next year.

Although a redshirt certainly would not be unprecedented, I personally think Moore will play this year. The coaches raved about him too much during the spring for me to think otherwise. He will serve as Brown's understudy.

Moore collected 63 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, eight sacks, 21 hurries and a blocked field goal in 2010. He helped to lead the Raiders to a 9-3 overall record (7-0 league) that year.

A two-time all-district pick, Moore was named one of the Top 100 players in Texas prior to his senior season. He will join high school teammate Marquel Bryant this fall. They are the first fruits of a renewed recruiting effort in Dallas.
