Nebraska’s top-rated 2018 commit Joshua Moore announces de-commitment

While many Nebraska fans were ready to part ways with the Mike Riley era of Huskers football, many also knew it may have a negative impact on recruiting.

Nebraska let Riley go on Nov. 25 and has since hired UCF’s Scott Frost. Frost opted to bring his entire staff from UCF, which meant there was no spot for key recruiters to be retained from Riley’s – like wide receivers coach Keith Williams.

Sunday afternoon, the Cornhuskers felt its first negative impact of Riley – and Williams – no longer being with the Huskers.

Joshua Moore — the No. 17-ranked WR in the Class of 2018 according to 247Sports — is the first de-commitment Nebraska has had since the hiring of Frost. Moore was the Cornhuskers’ top-rated recruit in the class.

The 6-foot-1 play-making WR from Texas was ranked as the No. 85 player in his class regardless of position. Now, with Moore out of the mix, Nebraska’s top-rated recruit is No. 188-ranked Cameron Jurgens.

Jurgens is a 4-star TE. Including Jurgens — with Moore gone — the Cornhuskers now have three 4-star recruits verbally committed for 2018.
