College career[edit]

At USC, Moore served as a backup defensive end as a true freshman and sophomore. In 2007, he did a solid job while starting at defensive end, recording 35 tackles, including 3.5 for losses of 29 yards (with 2 sacks for 20 yards), plus 2 interceptions that he returned 38 yards (19.0 avg.), 5 deflections, 1 forced fumble and 1 fumble recovery.

In 2008 Moore had arthroscopic surgery on his knee prior to 2008 spring practice, which limited him in spring drills. He started at defensive end alongside Everson Griffen.
