After a slight delay, offensive tackle Ernest Moore has joined the Warriors.
Moore needed to complete two summer classes at City College of San Francisco to earn an associate’s degree and finalize his transfer to UH.
Moore has gone through the orientation phase — no-padded practices — and is expected to be cleared for full participation as early as tomorrow. He said he has kept up by studying the playbook and going through tutorial sessions on the run-and-shoot offense.
Moore did not begin to play football until his senior year at Washington High in San Francisco. Since then, Moore has added 55 pounds to his 6-foot-8 frame, and now weighs about 315.
Coach Nick Rolovich said Moore does not have “a lot of football history. But there’s a frame and athleticism that most people would want.”
Plus, Moore is a CCSF alumnus, just like Rolovich. “He’s a Ram,” Rolovich said. “I trust those guys when they coach ’em. I’m getting an honest opinion, and I get an honest assessment if they’re going to be contributors.”
Rolovich acknowledged the junior-college path is not an easy one.
“IF you can survive at City,” Rolovich said, “you can survive anywhere.”
