Dan Moore, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound, defensive linemen, from Joliet (Ill.) Junior College, gave his verbal commitment to Wisconsin on Friday. Moore, according to his coaches is a late bloomer with a huge upside. He’ll be battling for a starting position next spring for the Badgers.
is a guy who really turned it up a notch and became one of our best players and leaders,” said Joliet Junior College coach Tom Minnick.
“Dan plays with high intensity, he has an outstanding motor and he has great quickness. He could play defensive end or defensive tackle but I see him being an inside guy for
. He’s probably a little too stiff to play defensive end in the Big Ten.
“Wisconsin is definitely getting a good football player. Dan (Moore) will give 110% on every play and he plays sideline-to-sideline. I don’t see any reason why he won’t compete right away for a starting job next spring.”
Wolves defensive coordinator Jason DeWolf worked closely with Moore and he had this to say about the future Badger.
“Dan played defensive end for us and he’ll play defensive tackle for Wisconsin.” Coach DeWolf said. “Dan really worked hard in the weight-room last summer, he put on a lot of good weight and his strength and quickness improved from his freshman year.
“Wisconsin is getting our team captain and motivational leader. Dan had a great season. He had six sacks and was named all-conference. When you talk about players who have lived up to their potential; that’s Dan Moore.”
Check back with Badger Nation on Tuesday as we’ll have feature story with pictures of defensive tackle Dan Moore.
