DeAndre Moore Jr., WR

There is no more important wide receiver recruit heading into the first signing day for Sark, wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator, and the Longhorns in the 2023 class than the talented four-star Louisville Cardinals commit/St. John Bosco product DeAndre Moore Jr.

Texas has poured a lot of effort and energy into the recruitment of Moore in the last couple of months. The efforts on the recruiting trail with Moore came to a head over the weekend when he made the surprise visit to Austin.

I won’t say that Moore’s unofficial trip to Austin last weekend sealed the deal for Texas ahead of his signing day decision on Dec. 21. But it is surely a really positive sign that Texas was able to get Moore to campus instead of the Georgia Bulldogs.

A report from Mike Roach of Horns247 on Dec. 20 (paid content) indicates that Sark, Marion, and this Texas staff feel like they did more than enough coming out of the unofficial visit last weekend to ultimately flip Moore’s commitment from Louisville.

None of the buzz we’re hearing regarding Moore’s recruitment comes anything close to favoring Georgia.

In fact, Louisville might even be in second place right now among the top schools in the race to sign Moore. Combine that with the word we heard on Dec. 20 that Texas is essentially the heavy favorite to sign Moore on Dec. 21, and we feel very confident that the blue-chip California wideout will ultimately wind up on the Forty Acres.
