A huge prospect in the Class of 2025 has West Virginia in their final three schools, but has been pursued heavily by in-state SEC programs -- on Wednesday night, he made the interesting decision to postpone a previously announced commitment.

Nic Moore, a four-star prospect and an ESPN 300 ranked recruit, is listed as a two-way lineman. He is ranked as both the sixth-overall interior offensive line prospect and the sixth-overall defensive line prospect in the nation.

Moore plays his high school ball at Jefferson County High School in Tennessee, and the other final schools in the mix are in-state programs, with both the Vanderbilt Commodores and Tennessee Volunteers fighting to land him.

It has been expected it’d be tough to sway Moore from the Volunteers, rumors began to circulate on social media Wednesday that WVU was becoming a potential favorite to land him. It was just thirty minutes prior to the scheduled announcement that Moore postponed, citing conversation with his family and head coach.

While nothing is for certain, the decision could indicate that WVU is making some progress in swaying Moore to join the class and that Tennessee may be making a last run at what they expected to be a surefire commit just recently. Certainly, such developments could influence a prospect to want to think over their decision a bit more.

The current WVU Class of 2025 is ranked 31st overall by 247Sports, and would be bolstered heavily by a four-star prospect such as Moore.
