Dakorien Moore, WR

Among the biggest stars in the 2025 class early in this cycle is the elite five-star Duncanville wide receiver Dakorien Moore. The 6-foot and 180-pound DFW Metroplex native wideout is a top priority for Sark, new wide receivers coach Chris Jackson, and the Longhorns in the 2025 class.

Moore is about as good as it get in terms of this talented crop of in-state wide receiver prospects in the 2025 class. The multi-sport athlete at Duncanville High School has a lot of the tools that could make him a standout wide receiver right away in the SEC.

I got to see Moore during the 7v7 circuit twice this offseason with Grand Elite Always Open. He’s blown me away both times that I’ve gotten to see him play with his insane route tree and natural separating ability. Moore also has great hands, which is very evident on film.


As good of a prospect as Moore is, though, it sounds like Texas is just now starting to pick up the communication after the departure of former wide receivers coach/pass game coordinator Brennan Marion. Mike Roach of Horns247 reported last month (paid content) that Moore hasn’t heard as much from Texas since the departure of Marion earlier in the offseason.

It’s also worth noting that Moore hasn’t visited Texas since last summer. And while it looks like Texas is getting something in the works to get Moore for a return visit to Austin this summer, there is still a bit more effort that Jackson and the Longhorns need to put into this recruitment for the rest of the offseason.

Texas is starting to get back to the point where Moore is one of the top in-state targets in the 2025 class. I’d assume it will continue to trend that way in this recruitment throughout the summer and fall.
