45 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Mike Moore


Mike Moore
True Freshman
6-1 | 213
Dallas, Texas


Position: Linebacker

Previous College: None

Projection: Redshirt

Status: On Scholarship

Charmeachealle "Mike" Moore II (b. Jan. 30, 1993) is 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 this class, so the coaches had the luxury of taking only the guy(s) they really wanted. They chose Moore. That should tell you something. So should these highlights.

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

Luckily, our depth at the position should allow Moore time to redshirt and adapt to college. He definitely needs to put on some more weight. As a middle linebacker, he'll be counted upon to replace Alex Hrebec next year.

Moore collected 63 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, eight sacks, 21 hurries and a blocked field goal in 2010. He will join high school teammate Marquel Bryant this fall. They are the first fruits of a renewed recruiting effort in Dallas.
