Joshua Moore could’ve basically picked any school in the country to spend the next 3-5 years.
The four-star Yoakum (Tex.) receiver was offered by 53 schools, several of which wanted him for track as well as football. But in the end, there was one that stood out among the rest.
On Sunday, Moore announced that he was verbally committed to Nebraska:

Nebraska fought off late surges from Texas A&M and Florida State to pick up a commitment from the versatile wideout. The Huskers also offered Moore a scholarship with the track and field team in May.
Moore is the No. 12 receiver and the No. 62 player overall in the 2018 class. He’s the No. 8 player in all of Texas, according to the 247sports composite. Moore took over Brendan Radley-Hiles’ spot as the Huskers’ top-ranked 2018 pledge.

Nebraska was Moore’s choice despite the fact that his brother, Jordan, is committed to Texas A&M. But Moore said that his brother’s school choice wouldn’t impact his decision.
Moore joined a Nebraska class that’s already had two four-star receivers in Eric Fuller and Manuel Allen. All three of them are ranked among the top 40 receivers in the 2018 class.
The pledge from Moore was the Huskers’ seventh from a four-star recruit in the 2018 class. That’s already more than the four 4-star recruits Nebraska signed in 2017.
