Joshua Moore has the ability to go to nearly any school in the country.
The four star wide receiver from Texas recently received a scholarship offer from West Virginia, so the Mountaineers are clearly in play for his future services.
Moore has upwards of 20 offers, currently, and that list will grow throughout the summer. On 247sports, Florida State, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA are seen as the frontrunners with Moore’s interest tabbed as “warm.”
The site predicts that Moore will end up at the flagship university of his home state of Texas. Moore very well could be part of the Longhorns great history of producing quality football players.
Moore could go to Texas (or Oklahoma) and do very well for himself. For a unique college experience and a chance to prove himself even more, Moore could enroll at another Big 12 school. That, of course, would be West Virginia.
WVU has had a recent history of featuring some dynamic offensive players, including Kevin White, Tavon Austin and Mario Alford.
Currently, the Mountaineers might boast the top corp of receivers in the Big 12. Shelton Gibson, Daikiel Shorts, Ka’Raun White and Jovon Durante are all top playmakers for the Mountaineers, without a clear-cut favorite as to who quarterback Skyler Howard will look for the most in 2016.
Moor is already a No. 1 target and he stands out with his sure hands and fleet feet. Moore isn’t the most physically commanding prospect, even at wide receiver. He stands at 6-foot and checks in at 180-pounds. He sure is in great shape for a rising senior at a solid school, Yoakum High School.
He is a dominant high school player in one of the best spots in the country for prep football. It’s good to see the Mountaineers continue to delve into Texas for its future.
Recent graduate Jordan Thompson, another wide receiver, called Texas home, as well. Moore could be coming in, shortly after Thompson wrapped up his solid collegiate career.
This Texas to WVU pipeline likely would not be in play as consistent as it has been recently if not for the Mountaineers’ journey into the Big 12 Conference.
Moore, and other top prospects from the Longhorn State, certainly know about the Mountaineers and connect them to other schools in the region. WVU stands out and has the ability to attract unique talent for the sheer fact that the Mountaineers are associated with schools which have been ingrained in the Big 12 for quite some time.
The Mountaineers remain the new kids on the block, but an established reputation of developing receiver talent has allowed for more pathways to Morgantown.
