Four-star athlete Jordan Moore is ready to commit more than a year out from 2018 National Signing Day. The Campus Insiders staff projects where he will land.


Four-star athlete Jordan Moore will announce his college commitment on Christmas Eve at 5 p.m. Hailing from Yoakum, Texas, Moore has a top 10 that includes Florida State, Houston, Louisville, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M. Prior to the announcement, the Campus Insiders editorial team debated what program will land the nation’s No. 4 ATH in the 2018 class.

Jeff Bartl

Moore is the definition of versatility. Anyone can play in all three phases of the game, but that alone doesn’t make a player versatile. What separates Moore from the pretenders is that he excels at running back, defensive back and as a return in special teams. There’s a reason top schools have been on him for so long.

It seems that Kevin Sumlin and his staff have made the most in-roads during Moore’s recruitment, unless of course he’s enamored by the Tom Herman hire at Texas. My guess is that Moore will choose Texas A&M, but given that he’s in the 2018 class, I wouldn’t be surprised if he flips prior to signing a long while from now. Flips are common these days among top players, especially those who commit too early. That might not be the case with Moore, but it’s always a possibility.

Jonathan Bass

There’s a notion that recruits in the 2018 cycle will commit to a school primarily based on relationships with coaches. That a program with steady leadership has the inside track over one who has dealt with turnover. If you subscribe to such thinking, then Texas A&M is the pick here. Double down on that when considering Moore visited College Station twice this past season – for the UCLA and Tennessee games.

And while that theory based on consistency is logical, I just can’t go against Tom Herman and the Longhorns here. Call it recency effect, but Texas is absolutely scorching on the recruiting trail right now – locking up two players on Friday night alone. Herman was also recruiting at such a high clip while with Houston, that he’s likely the main reason for Houston being in Moore’s top schools list. Todd Orlando is now in place at defensive coordinator, which is stabilizing for an athlete projected to play either in the defensive secondary (Orlando’s area) or scatback (Herman’s side of the ball).

Granted, there is a lot of time for Moore to commit and decommit, evaluate and reevaluate, before officially signing on the dotted line, but at this moment I’m leaning toward Texas.

Dave Miller

The home-state Texas A&M Aggies and Texas Longhorns are the odds-on favorites to land the 2018 recruit’s services. He has a ton of versatility, playing on both sides of the ball for Yoakum High School, and he’s one of the top athletes in the Lone Star State. Houston has been in the mix as well, but the loss of Tom Herman hurts. However, the Cougars’ loss will be the Longhorns’ gain, as Herman’s arrival in Austin means that Moore will decide to play for the Big 12 school.
