One of the top in-state priorities for Texas football in the 2025 class is the elite five-star Duncanville wide receiver, and LSU Tigers commit Dakorien Moore. The No. 2 wide receiver recruit in the nation in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite and On3 Industry Ranking still has plenty of communication with Texas’ staff despite committing to LSU a couple of months ago.
When discussing the Moore recruitment, we’ve mentioned that head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns are treating him as an uncommitted prospect. There is a long way to go in this recruitment as the Longhorns are not throwing in the towel anytime soon.
Moore visited Texas unofficially on Sep. 16 to see the Longhorns beat the Wyoming Cowboys at home at DKR by a score of 31-10. On3 reported on Oct. 15 (paid content) that Moore is “expected” to make a return visit to Austin for a gameday at DKR before the end of the 2023 regular season.
Texas football reportedly making things interesting with 5-Star LSU WR commit Dakorien Moore
This report also mentioned that Sark and special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Jeff Banks visited Duncanville High School to see Moore and a handful of other Texas commits beat up on Waxahachie 44-10 on Oct. 12.
If Sark and Banks took time during Texas’ bye week to specifically see Moore, along with five-star edge rusher commit Colin Simmons and four-star defensive lineman Alex January, that shows how much they are prioritizing his recruitment this fall.
Texas and LSU remain the top two schools in Moore’s recruitment
Texas and LSU are reportedly the top two schools “jockeying for position” in this recruitment this fall. The Longhorns are doing a nice job of “chipping away” at Moore’s commitment to LSU with a couple of successful unofficial visits since the summer and consistent communication from the staff.
Sark, Banks, and wide receivers coach Chris Jackson are all heavily involved in this recruitment.
