Wide receiver Joshua Moore announced his de-commitment from Nebraska on Sunday. Moore is a 4-star wide receiver and a top 100 overall recruit in the 2018 class according to the 247Sports composite.
The Huskers’ loss could potentially be Arkansas’ gain. The Razorbacks’ new coaching staff extended an offer to Moore and his twin brother, Jordan, on Monday.
Following the offer, Joshua Moore told SEC Country he is planning to take an official visit to Arkansas as he evaluates his options going forward. He and his brother, a 4-star safety, attend Yoakum (Texas) High School. They are teammates of 3-star offensive lineman Silas Robinson, who committed to Arkansas on Sunday morning.
Jordan Moore is committed to Texas A&M. His level of interest in Arkansas is unknown at this time.
Arkansas wide receivers coach Justin Stepp was at Yoakum’s playoff game in Austin, Texas, last Saturday. Yoakum will play in Texas’ Class 3A D-I semifinals this Friday.
The Razorbacks’ previous staff under Bret Bielema recruited Joshua Moore, though didn’t gain much traction in landing his commitment.
The idea of playing in Morris’ offense is typically a major draw for wide receiver recruits. While head coach at SMU during the 2017 season, Morris had two wide receivers catch passes for more than 1,000 yards. One of those — Trey Quinn — was a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award. Stepp was also Morris’ wide receivers coach with the Mustangs.
