Virginia Football Recruiting: Chris Moore signs with UVa

Moore will help bolster the Virginia secondary

Name: Chris Moore

High School: Broad Run (Ashburn VA)

Height/Weight: 6-2, 185 pounds

Ranking: Rivals 2*, 247, 247 3*, ESPN 3*

Additional Offers: Boston College, Charlotte, East Carolina, Navy

The Skinny:

Are you noticing a theme here of big and physical defensive backs?

Well Moore is the biggest of the bunch. Standing 6-feet-2 and weighing close to 200 pounds, Moore is being recruited as a cornerback/safety hybrid position. Moore primarily lined up at cornerback at Broad Run, but he has experience playing all four positions in the secondary, and his size my warrant a move to safety.

As seen on the film above, Moore plays the ball extremely well. Moore does a nice job of telegraphing where the ball is going to go, and does a job of reacting quickly. His  6-2 frame allows him to cover a lot of ground and rotate between zone and man coverage seamlessly. Oh yeah, did we mention that he was physical?

While Moore posses the physical tools needed to play defensive back in college, the NOVA native could still use work on his lateral quickness and overall flexibility. The improvements needed in his game combined with the possible position change will likely lead to a redshirt season in 2016.
