Kenmore's Moore holds scholarship offers from UA & KSU

Kenmore junior football player Deon’tae Moore continues to receive interest from several colleges.
Cardinals coach Ed Peltz said Monday that Moore currently holds scholarship offers from the University of Akron and Kent State University.
“He has heard from all the MAC, about half of the Big Ten and some of the SEC,” Kenmore coach Ed Peltz said.
Peltz said West Virginia, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee and Alabama are just some of the schools that have reached out to him.
“The kid gets more mail than the rest of the school,” Peltz said with a laugh. “He can use his own post office, but he is handling so well. He is so well grounded.”
Moore, a 6-foot-4 and 208-pound outside linebacker, totaled 73 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and 14 sacks last season for Kenmore. He forced five fumbles and recovered two, blocked three kicks, batted down six passes and blocked one punt.
Moore was an Associated Press Division II All-Ohio selection last season and was named the Division II Northeast Ohio Inland District Defensive Player of the Year.
Moore also competes on the Kenmore boys track and field team in the 100 meters, 400 relay, 800 relay and discus.
“My hope it that he takes his time and makes what he feels is the right decision,” Peltz said.
