Instead of making a decision on National Signing Day, Yoakum wide receiver and key Texas Longhorns target Joshua Moore will commit on Sunday at 1 p.m. CT:
The 6’1, 170-pounder was set to take an official visit to his other finalist, the Oregon Ducks, this weekend, but opted to cancel the trip. Two weeks ago, Moore was on campus in Austin:
And, last week, Longhorns head coach Tom Herman has his in-home visit with Moore, which could help explain the decision to announce on Sunday instead of on Wednesday.
Connecting all the dots, there’s a strong chance that Moore has already made up his mind about attending his mother’s alma mater, Texas. Especially since he didn’t make it out to Eugene.
As recently as seven weeks ago, the Longhorns weren’t even in the mix for Moore, who was a longtime Cornhuskers pledge. But after Texas re-offered Moore in mid-December and it became clear early this month that Texas A&M was not a major factor in his recruitment despite his twin brother’s pledge to the Aggies, Herman’s program made a big move.
Past Oregon, it seems, which offered Moore in December and picked up several Crystal Ball predictions before the consensus four-star prospect started to trend towards Texas prior to his official visit.
In recent weeks, all of the Crystal Ball picks favored the Longhorns and the home-state program now holds a massive lead.
Moore is ranked as the No. 96 prospect nationally, the No. 19 wide receiver, and the No. 10 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
