One of the handful of prospects from Alabama who visited Clemson for its game against Boston College last weekend was Hewitt-Trussville 2020 cornerback Malachi Moore.

It marked the sophomore standout’s first experience at Clemson.

“I absolutely loved it,” Moore said. “The overall atmosphere was what stood out the most. I mean everybody was so welcoming.”

Moore (6-0, 165) spoke with area recruiter Todd Bates, cornerbacks coach Mike Reed and defensive coordinator Brent Venables while on campus.

The Tigers let him know they have their eyes on him.

“All of them said basically the same thing: like we have been looking at you and are glad to have you here and we are going to continue looking at you, and they would love to have me back up to another game,” Moore said.

Clemson isn’t the only school Moore is attracting attention from. Samford gave him his first offer in June before Oregon, UAB and East Carolina offered in July. Alabama and Auburn are showing interest along with the Tigers.

Moore is high on Clemson after getting a feel for the school and program in person.

“It would mean a lot to get an offer from a big-time school like Clemson,” he said.

Moore was joined on the visit by a couple of his teammates at Hewitt-Trussville, 2018 safety Myles Mason and 2020 wide receiver Dazalin Worsham.

The school is also home to 2019 offensive tackle Pierce Quick, who received an offer from Clemson last Friday, and 2019 quarterback Paul Tyson, who has visited Clemson a couple of times.
