RECRUITING: Moore has Gators in Final Two
RB Kestahn Moore
Posted Jan 23, 2005

Kestahn Moore of Arlington (TX) Mansfield Summit may be new to the University of Florida recruiting board, but the dual threat running back has Florida in his top two. After visiting Gainesville this weekend, the 5-10, 199-pounder has narrowed it down to Florida and Oklahoma State with Wisconsin eliminated from the recruiting derby.

Rated four stars by, Kestahn Moore refused to name a leader between his final two schools.

A quiet young man, Moore called his visit "good," and on a 1-10 scale called his visit to Florida "about an eight."

Moore was hosted on his visit by running back Markus Manson from Hoover Alabama, one of only three running backs on the Gator roster. The Gators would love to add two or more running backs in this recruiting class. Moore told us he appreciated Manson as his host.

"He was good," he said, mentioning that his personal highlight of the trip was "hanging with the team and the coaches."

Moore has completed his official visits. He will think things over, talk with parents and advisors, and by Friday, he says he will be ready to make a decision.

The Gators host another Texas running back next Friday when Houston Westside's US Army All-American R.J. Jackson comes to town. By the end of the weekend, the Gators could have a recruiting class with two Texans committed to play in the UF backfield.

GATOR COUNTRY TAKE: This is a close decision. He likes both schools and sees possibilities for playing time at both places. We won't know until Friday what he is thinking for sure.
