Texas Tech got a huge boost in their offensive backfield last night when Mississippi's top junior college tailback committed to the Red Raiders.

Moore helped East MS CC get off to a 8-0 start and a number two nationally ranking. He as also a part of a team that rode a twenty two game winning streak and helped them to a national championship his freshman season.

This past season Moore rushed for 902 yards and 11 TD's on only 147 carries. His freshman season he had an even bigger impact with over 1, 300 yards rushing and 7 TD's.

The 5' 11", 185-pound tailback likes to run between the tackles and once he gets to the next line of defense he has the ability to make you miss and take it the distance.

The Bastrop, LA product should provide the Raiders with an immediate boost in the offensive backfield and is fit for the spread offense.

Coach Art Kaufman was responsible for Moore's recruitment.
