PROVO, Utah – BYU football defensive back Malik Moore has become one of the most improved players this season.
In his fourth year at BYU, the San Diego native secured a safe starting spot at the start of the season. He’s carried that success into games, where he has three interceptions in BYU’s first eight contests this year.
Moore would be the first to tell you it could have been five steals had he caught the extra two drops against the Crimson Cougs over the weekend. But his three picks put him ahead of BYU’s interception this season.
With this type of success and the name, image and likeness offered to college athletes these days, it is time for Moore to capitalize on it.

After notching one of his three interceptions this season in the win over Washington State last Saturday, Moore, who has never been shy about his appreciation of a good meal, was asked about BYUtv s ‘he was going to get a post-game pizza.
Malik Moore wants Wingstop sponsorship
“I don’t smell the pizza; I feel like a Wingstop today, ”Moore said during the BYUtv postgame. “I need Wingstop to sponsor me or something. Hey, if you’re all watching this Wingstop, please hit your boy. I want it! I go there every time.
The power of social media is returning. Wingstop responded to Moore’s Twitter inquiry, “we’re definitely looking at this (eyeball emoji).”
we are definitely looking at this

Oh man, Wingstop even added the BYU eyeball emoji. You might as well shut it down and start writing those checks for Moore.
Wingstop has 10 locations in Utah, including one in Provo near the BYU campus on University Parkway.
But if Wingstop doesn’t pass, junior security won’t go up against some hamburger sponsors either.
” I go there every day [to Five Guys], ask your Orem employees near the Cinemark shopping center. I promise you, ”Moore said.
