Ever since his arrival in Austin, Tom Herman has been hot on the recruiting trail looking both inside and outside of Texas for the best talent. On Sunday, the Longhorns added a big-time commitment from one of the top receivers in the 2018 class.
Four-star receiver Rondale Moore (Trinity) of Kentucky announced his commitment to the Longhorns on Sunday. He was in Austin last weekend on an unofficial visit.
Moore had over 30 offers and chose Texas over the likes of Kentucky, Ohio State, Penn State, and Alabama among others. Per 247 Sports, Ohio State and Purdue were considered the two favorites but after an unofficial visit to Austin last weekend, the momentum shifted in favor of the Longhorns.
Originally from New Albany, Indiana, the 5-7 receiver may be one of the fastest receivers in the country and considered by some to be the top slot receiver in the country for the Class of 2018. Per 247 Sports, he is the top-ranked receiver in Kentucky.
Due to transfer rules, Moore saw limited action but he was simply electrifying when he had the ball in his hands. He finished with 20 catches for 464 yards and nine touchdowns.
Moore becomes commit No. 12 for Texas in the Class of 2018 and is now ranked as the No. 4 recruiting class in the country, according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings.
Moore is also committed to the U.S. Army All-American Game, which will be played in January in San Antonio.
