LB Skai Moore (6-3 210) of Fort Lauderdale committed to Rutgers in early December, but USC offered him Saturday and he plans to set an official visit with the Gamecocks.

"I talked to coach (Grady) Brown last Saturday and he offered," Moore said. "He said there is a spot open for me for linebacker and I have a good opportunity to fight for a spot as a freshman. After watching the game (Tuesday, I saw how their defensive plays and it kind of intrigued me a little. I'm going to call coach Brown (Thursday) and hopefully schedule for me to get up there."

Moore has taken an official visit to Vanderbilt and is still talking with the Commodores. He is scheduled to visit Rutgers January 26th.

"My commitment is pretty strong but my coach wants me to keep my options open a little bit to make sure it's the right fit for me," he said.

This season Moore had 105 tackles with 6.5 sacks, 4 interceptions returning two for touchdowns, forced two fumbles and and broke up six passes.
