You can’t search YouTube and find endless amounts of on-the-field footage of him. You can talk to a lot of recruiting “experts”, and not even they can tell you much about him. Still, nevertheless, Arlington, Virginia safety Kamrin Moore committed to the Boston College Eagles recently, and has created a bit if buzz since then.
Moore isn’t heavily-hyped, nor is he even rated according to any of the recruiting website’s criteria. However, he attended the Boston College camp over the weekend, and when workouts were through, he left proclaiming his intentions to attend the Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts institution after an offer was made available to him.
The 6-1, 190-pound defensive back opened up a lot of eyes among the Eagles’ coaching staff, thus warranting the offer before he left. Moore impressed the coaches with his physicality, and impressive feet movement. What really may have been the deciding factor for offering the young man may have been his coverage skills. While it’s tough to find a safety that can be effective in cornerback-like one-on-one coverage, Moore was more than passable. And, as with all skilled safeties throughout the years, he loves to make that big hit when he closes on a ball-carrier.
According to Heights247, the Boston College recruiting site who was in attendance to take in the camp, Moore may need a little bit of work on his conditioning. They had some concerns with his top-end speed, however that’s something that can develop over time in a BCS-level strength and conditioning program.
This is merely one of those cases where traditional star ratings may not factor in to a recruit’s success. New head coach Steve Addazio has an impressive track record throughout his career in overseeing the development of exceptional talent. For as unknown as Moore was coming into the camp, Addazio and crew had to be somewhat blown away to offer a young man that is virtually unknown.
Soon though, we may all know who he is.
