Tim Brewster has added another commitment, this time he went back to the familiar Dallas Skyline High School campus.

Mike Moore is a linebacker who visited Minnesota this week and has verbally committed to play for the Gophers.

Moore did not originally plan to commit this early on. "I really did not head up to Minnesota with the intention of committing. I knew that I liked the coaches and I had a good feeling about Minnesota, but I did not think I would love it as much as I do. I was not going to commit right away, but after seeing everything and meeting everyone I had no reason not to commit so I jumped on it and committed."

As I'm sure most of you know the Gophers have been to Skyline before and Moore is continuing this little pipeline.

When he arrives on campus, Moore will be the fifth Skyline Raider wearing the Maroon and Gold. "I am really excited to get up there and play with my guys from Skyline. I talk to Coop (Keanon Cooper) all the time. He loves Minnesota and worked on me really hard to come up. I talk with all those guys and they always have great things to say about Minnesota. They all had a big influence on my decision to come to Minnesota."

Moore currently does not have any guru-stars but he did have offers from a few other BCS schools (Kansas St, Kentucky and Iowa State. He currently plays DE but will be a LB for the Gophers.
