A potentially interesting route that new wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Brennan Marion, Sark, and the Longhorns could take in building out this 2023 class at wideout is pursuing a current Louisville Cardinals commit. The highly touted four-star Los Alamitos (CA) wide receiver and new Louisville commit DeAndre Moore Jr. could be a name to watch in the next few weeks for Marion and the Longhorns.

There was once a time when there was a good amount of traction between Sark and Moore. Texas was one of just a handful of schools that got an unofficial visit from Moore during the spring. Moore visited Texas unofficially for the altered version of the annual Orange-White spring football game back on April 23.

But it wasn’t too long after that when we saw Moore commit to Louisville over other top schools such as the Oklahoma Sooners, USC Trojans, and Texas. Moore committed to Louisville on May 31, sparking a really big run for head coach Scott Satterfield and the Cardinals on the recruiting trail in the few weeks since.

We’ll dig more into another blue-chip skill position commit for the Cardinals later in this list, though.

Moreover, Moore would be an excellent fit in this Sark offensive scheme, especially with Arch in the fold now. And it’s not out of the question that Texas could get some interest from Moore given that Louisville is not a traditional recruiting powerhouse in football by any means.

If there is one wideout that is currently committed elsewhere that might now have more interest in coming to Texas after landing Arch, it would likely be Moore.
