Signing and placing

From the Moore Commits post above:

Moore has had an interesting recruitment. He committed to Ohio State over the summer, but it appears that Moore and the Buckeyes agreed to part ways in October. (He has been considered a qualification risk, and there's a chance that Ohio State preferred to go with someone they knew would qualify instead.) He quickly committed to Kansas but later admitted that was partially because his high school coach pushed him in that direction. He is no longer committed to the Jayhawks, and he is once again giving Mizzou a look.

Moore is a strong athlete for his size and is an accomplished basketball player as well. He would be a good get, though there's reason to believe he might end up being a sign-and-place guy, like fellow 2015 recruit Chase Abbington, who signed with Mizzou in 2013 and will do so again on Wednesday.

Future Buckeye tight end Josh Moore has become future Mizzou defensive lineman Josh Moore. We'll take that.

Moore is all sorts of intriguing, whether he's here in the fall or comes in two years. He boasts a strong level of overall athleticism on a 250-pound frame, but he hints at athletic upside he hasn't yet reached. His recruitment was strange, but he ended up signing with the right team.
