Nebraska commit Joshua Moore has shown why he’s one of the highest-rated members of the Huskers’
2018 recruiting class all season, and his playoff performances have only reinforced that fact.
During his Yoakum (Texas) team’s 3A Regional Finals victory over Goliad, 40-7, on Saturday night, the 4-star wide
receiver’s big-play ability was on full display through the air — and with his arm.
Moore hauled in a 29-yard pass over three defenders in the waning seconds of the first half, giving Yoakum a 33-7 lead
heading into halftime. He later threw for a touchdown, connecting with his twin brother Jordan Moore on a 19-yard completion
for the final score of the game.
“I threw an interception earlier when we called that play,” Moore
told the Victoria Advocate. “When we called it again, I knew that I had to make that play. Jordan is my brother
and it always feels good to get him the ball.”
For good measure, Moore added 56 rushing yards. Jordan Moore, a Texas A&M commit, rushed for 270 yards and scored 3
Yoakum moves on to face Rockdale in the 3A semifinals this weekend.
Since Nebraska has changed coaches, Moore has been silent and is not conducting media interviews. At this time, he’s
still committed to the Huskers, but his relationships with Mike Riley and Keith Williams on the former staff were instrumental
in bringing him to Lincoln.
Moore is someone to keep a close eye on as the early signing period is a little more than a week away.
