"Rahim has been a starter since the day he arrived at UCLA," said head coach Rick Neuheisel. "He has been a key performer in our secondary throughout his career and he never missed a start. It was a thrill to watch him lead the nation with 10 interceptions in 2009. We certainly thank him for all of his contributions to the program and support his decision to take the next step in his career." Moore earned first-team All-America honors from Sporting News and third-team acclaim from AP in 2010. Moore was one of 10 Thorpe Award semifinalists and a Phil Steele Mid-Season All-American and was named to the Nagurski Trophy, Lott Trophy, Bednarik Award and Thorpe Award pre-season watch lists after an honor-filled `09 season. In 2010, he was one of just three All-Pac-10 first-team performers to repeat from 2009. Moore, who started all 12 games, was third on the squad with 77 tackles and 17th (tied) in the Pac-10 (6.42 average). His 14 career interceptions rank No. 4 (tied) on the all-time UCLA list. Moore started all 13 games in 2009 and was selected first-team All-America by Scout.com and second-team by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, AP, Rivals.com and Si.com. He was named first-team All-Pac-10 by the league's coaches. Sporting News selected him the Pac-10 Defensive MVP. - UCLA football

    Moore is our #1 junior FS prospect and is most likely going to be the #1 FS prospect overall. He is 6-1, 196 and has good speed for the position (4.50e). He can also play SS and CB, so his versatility is a plus. His play is similar to that of Nate Allen of the Eagles.
