A one-time target of Charlie Strong is now a Tom Herman target.

One day after decommitting from the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Texas Longhorns extended an offer to Yoakum wide receiver Joshua Moore for a second time:

The 6’1, 170-pounder was once a top target of the former coaching staff, but when head coach Tom Herman arrived, he declined to make Moore a priority, instead choosing to target other wide receivers like Al’vonte Woodard and Brennan Eagles.

With Schertz Clemens wide receiver Tommy Bush trending towards Michigan State and Terrace Marshall still a longshot, it appears that Herman and his staff are now circling back on Moore now that his recruitment is wide open once again.

However, even though Moore grew up a fan of the Longhorns, it could be difficult to pull him away from the Aggies — new head coach Jimbo Fisher recruited Moore while he was in Tallahassee and the industry consensus in the immediate aftermath of his decommitment from the Cornhuskers was that he would end up in College Station. Moore’s twin brother, Jordan, who plays safety, is also committed to Texas A&M.

As a senior, Moore had 432 yards and five touchdowns rushing and 362 yards and seven touchdowns receiving. A consensus four-star prospect, he’s ranked as the No. 85 player nationally, the No. 17 wide receiver, and the No. 9 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
