Texas Football Recruiting: Elite WR commits to Texas for business reasons

Texas Football has landed another four-star recruit in the 2018 college football recruiting class.

Wide Receiver Rondale Moore out of Louisville, Kentucky, committed to Texas Football, making him the 13th player who committed to Texas in the 2018 class. (11 have remained after 2 de-committed.)

Rondale Moore wants to be more than just a wide receiver, though. Moore said in a local TV interview that there was a major academic reason why he selected the Longhorns.

Moore said the world-famous McCombs Business School at the University of Texas helped sell him on Texas.

On the football field, Moore said that he also feels like he will fit great in the Texas offense under Tom Herman (and presumably offensive coordinator Tim Beck).


Rondale Moore Brings Exceptional Speed

Moore is the second WR to commit to the Longhorns in the 2018 class. But, he is the first WR to stick with the Horns.

Justin Watkins, a WR from Florida who was the first 2018 recruit, announced on Sunday that he is de-committing from Texas. That made it even more important that Tom Herman found a WR for the 2018 class.

Moore is undersized at about 5’9″ and 175 pounds, but he makes up for it with blazing open field speed.

This big-time WR recruit from outside of Texas can catch the ball in the open field, elude defenders, and take it to the endzone.

Moore was also considering his hometown school, the Louisville Cardinals, but the Trinity High School (Kentucky) product decided to travel south to Texas to play for Tom Herman.

We expect to see Moore’s speed at DKR Memorial Stadium in the 2018 season. It will be a crowded WR field when Moore joins the Longhorns, but Texas Football needs additional speed to compete in the Big 12 conference against other high-flying offenses.
