A sophomore at Naples High School in Florida, Devin Moore has been receiving a lot of interest lately from Power 5 schools. At 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, Moore has been shutting down opposing offenses like there is no tomorrow
He is looking forward to another great year as Naples tries to avenge their regional semifinals loss to the eventual 6A state champions from Miami Central. We got up with Moore to ask him some football questions and some questions about himself.
Devin Moore (DB) 6-2 / 180 lbs. / Naples High School
1. Heading into your junior year what is your No. 1 goal?
My goal is to be a better leader, not only for my team or the youth, but for everyone.
2. If you had to compare your style to a NFL/college cornerback, who would be the closest to your style?
My style is comparable to Jalen Ramsey or Derek Stingley — a lot of press and man.
3. What major/degree are you hoping to purse in college?
I want to major in sales and marketing.
4. What schools have you visited?
Miami, Florida, Georgia, (South Florida), and Florida State.
5. Favorite football memory?
This past season when I scored my first high school touchdown on a pick-6 in the second game of the season.
6. What is your favorite celebration after an interception, pass break-up, or huge stop?
I don’t really have one, but I have a deep celebration list that’s coming out this upcoming year though.
7. How many offers do you have to play college ball (all levels)? List your first-ever offer and your latest offer? Also which Division I school offer surprised you the most?
I have 16 DI offers. NC State was my first and Nebraska was my latest. My most surprising is honestly all of them; very blessed to be in this position.

8. Would you be willing to change positions if a coach asked you?
For sure; that’s what I had to do my first two years of high school due to limited depth in the back end.
9. Do you plan on enrolling early when it is time to attend college?
I’m leaning towards yes, but it isn’t set in stone yet.

I’m originally a cornerback but had to play free safety my first two years of high school.

I would love to work my way into real estate after everything is said and done.

1-on-1’s by far.

The most shocking is that I have a chance to play college football — something many don’t have the chance to be able to do.

16. What are some of your hobbies besides football?
I like watching film, reading books about investing, and playing 2K from time to time
17. What is a fact about you that most do not know?

My parents will definitely influence my decision, but they will leave the decision itself up to me.
