One of the recruitments that Texas football fans are watching for the 2023 class on the first National Signing Day of the cycle concerns the highly touted four-star Louisville Cardinals wide receiver commit and St. John Bosco product DeAndre Moore Jr. Texas is one of the top schools in the running to sign Moore on the first signing day of the cycle on Dec. 21.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian, wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Brennan Marion, and the Longhorns put the full-court press on Moore to flip his commitment from Louisville for the last few months. And it looked like the Longhorns were in a very favorable position to flip and ultimately sign Moore on NSD1 when he announces at St. John Bosco on the morning of Dec. 21.

Yet, this recruitment doesn’t look to be done with all of the craziness quite yet. It looks like Louisville could still be in the running to maintain Moore’s commitment as of the morning of the first signing day.

More curveballs coming up in the recruitment of 4-Star Texas football WR target DeAndre Moore Jr.

An update on Moore’s recruitment from 247Sports national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins on Dec. 21 (paid content) indicates that the blue-chip California wideout could stick with Louisville on signing day. But Biggins did note that Moore could delay signing his National Letter of Intent if he does stick with the Cardinals.

Moreover, there were some twists and turns in this recruitment that weren’t anticipated ahead of the first signing day.

Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports summed up where we’re at in this recruitment pretty well by saying that “people in Louisville think they will sign Moore while people in Texas think they will sign him”.

We will continue to monitor the recruitment of Moore as the scheduled announcement ceremony for him approaches on Dec. 21. He is scheduled to announce at St. John Bosco at 11 a.m. CT.

Moore is the biggest remaining wide receiver recruit for the Longhorns 2023 class. He was in Austin for an unofficial visit last weekend, which was the last trip he took before the first signing day on Dec. 21.
