DeAndre Moore Jr., WR

The most mysterious recruitment during the first signing day on Dec. 21 belonged to the talented four-star Louisville Cardinals commit and St. John Bosco wide receiver DeAndre Moore Jr. Heading into NSD1, it looked as if Moore was in a position to flip his commitment from Louisville to Texas.

Moore was originally slated to announce his signing decision at St. John Bosco on the morning of Dec. 21 at the high school’s signing day ceremony. But Moore wasn’t there with his teammates during the actual signing day ceremony at St. John Bosco.

That came about around the same time as a report that Moore was considering pushing back his decision beyond the first signing day. Thus, Moore wound up sticking with his commitment to Louisville at least through the end of the day on Dec. 21.

While it now feels like Moore is destined to stick with his commitment to Louisville for good, that isn’t the complete story behind his recruitment at this point. It still sounds like Moore is a possibility for the Longhorns at the conclusion of the first signing day.

We got a nugget from CJ Vogel of TFB Texas (donor content) on Dec. 21 that notes Moore is still someone that could land in the Longhorns 2023 class by the end of the Early Signing Period. There are technically still two days remaining in this signing period.

Considering how Texas is looking to get at least three or four wideouts in the 2023 class between portal players and high school recruits, it makes sense that wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Brennan Marion and Sark still push for Moore on NSD2 and 3.
