Four-star receiver Joshua Moore was at the Under Armour All-America camp in Orlando over the weekend and was not expected to participate in any drills because of a hurt Achilles. However, his competitive juices started flowing and he got there and even earned himself an invitation to the Under Armour All-America game for this recruiting cycle.
However, he also revealed that his top three schools have changed as well. While it was Florida State, Ohio State and Texas A&M leading in his recruitment last time, it seems that the Aggies have been replaced with a familiar foe in Alabama. That’s what he told Scout:
He also wants to get out to Tuscaloosa for a visit so he can see for himself if all the hype is warranted.
“First week of summer, I’ll go up there and visit ‘Bama. I just want to see if it’s like what everyone says it is. I’m sure they’ll have rings and trophies everywhere, but one thing about me is that I’m real big on academics. So I want to see what’s up with that and if it meets my expectations or not.”
Moore is the No. 13 receiver in the country according to 247Sports and the No. 20 recruit in the state of Florida. The crystal ball predictions give FSU a 53 percent chance of landing him with Texas following at 20 percent. Oklahoma and Texas A&M are behind that with 13 percent chances each.
He also singled out a date when he would commit and it looks like these schools will be waiting until the summer.
“I plan on committing either July 18 or at one of the All-American games,” he said. “My big brother passed away on that date, it’s actually his birthday. I’m going to dedicate that day to him.”
Here are some of his highlights:
