Speaking of top targets at positions of need in the Longhorns 2023 class this fall, the highly touted four-star Louisville Cardinals commit and St. John Bosco product DeAndre Moore Jr. is probably the top priority at wide receiver at the moment.

A report from Mike Roach of Horns247 this week (paid content) indicates that the final domino that could fall for Louisville that could cause Moore to open up his recruitment would be a possible Scott Satterfield firing this fall. Satterfield is sitting on one of the hottest seats of any Power Five head coach in college football.

The two schools that Moore is being recruited by the most this fall is Texas and Georgia. He is scheduled to be on campus in Athens for a visit to Georgia this weekend. He will be in attendance for the massive game between Georgia and the newly No. 1 ranked Tennessee Volunteers on Nov. 5.

There will be a lot of eyes on that game, and it is bound to have a sizable impact on Georgia’s pursuit in the Moore recruitment.

If I had to gauge the Moore recruitment at the moment, I’d probably say that Georgia has more momentum than Texas. But that could still change in a hurry in the next couple of weeks.

The good news is that it looks like Texas and Georgia appear to be the top two schools right now in the race to land a commitment from Moore.

Texas also has one other wide receiver recruit on flip watch in November.

Wide receiver recruiting is looking to boil down to two targets in the 2023 class at this point. Moore and four-star Notre Dame Fighting Irish commit/Austin Westlake product Jaden Greathouse are probably the best two options for the Longhorns in the 2023 class ahead of signing day.

It’s worth noting that both Moore and Greathouse are expected to be on campus next weekend when Texas hosts TCU in primetime at DKR. Moore’s visit is expected to be official, while Greathouse’s will be unofficial.

At the moment, Texas has more momentum in the Greathouse recruitment than it does Moore. But I also think that the momentum could swing faster in the Moore recruitment than it will with Greathouse.

Beat TCU and win at least three games to round out the season, and Texas should be in a good spot to flip Moore’s commitment from Louisville over Georgia.
