How he fits:

Moore has played at center and guard during his high school days, and the usual progression of Limegrover hogs with a similar prep track is to start them out at guard before seeing if they can handle center responsibilities. Tyler will likely follow that same route, though he'll at least get an additional spring practice in before the coaches decide where to slot him. If he can snap the ball without sacrificing first step quickness, power and leverage, center would be an ideal long term fit for the offense as a powerful combo blocker.

Chances to play in 2015:

I want to say zero but center is up in the air after 2015. Since he's already on campus (and he's already huge), Moore could be in a position to earn some PT at center this year while Limegrover grooms him for a future starting role if that's the direction they decide to go.
