In an age of recruiting where offers speak volumes, Moore had more than any other prospect in his class with 53. Programs such as Alabama, Ohio State, LSU, Michigan, Texas and Oklahoma were among college football’s more recognizable brands that failed to even survive Moore’s final cut.
A four-star prospect, Moore spent his offseason transferring to Florida’s IMG Academy and then recently announcing he’s transferring back to Yoakum for his senior season, crediting the distance from his family as a deciding factor. As we now know, considering Moore’s brother Jordan is committed to Texas A&M as a safety, distance from his family won’t impact his decision to once again head out of state.
As far as what Nebraska fans can expect from their latest addition, Moore recently described what he brings to the table to TexasHSFootball.com.
“[I’m] very ferocious, especially on defense,” Moore said of how he’d describe his game. “I don’t really care who’s out there in front of me. I like to talk a lot of mess. So just a very ferocious player, a very confident player. I’m a vertical threat at wide receiver, a very physical wide receiver and a physical corner. I can beat you deep with my speed, run great routes and have great hands.”
As a junior for Yoakum, Moore hauled in 27 receptions for 527 yards and eight touchdowns, along with another 324 yards and four scores on the ground.
The addition of Moore now pushes Nebraska’s 2018 haul to 11 total pledges. He’s also the highest-ranked Husker pledge to date.
Moore is ranked as the nation’s No. 62 player, No. 12 wide receiver and the No. 8 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
