DeAndre Moore Jr. commits to Texas Longhorns; nation's No. 16 receiver flips from Louisville

After a lengthy Louisville commitment, Moore has officially flipped to the University of Texas.

St. John Bosco-Bellflower, Calif. wide receiver DeAndre Moore Jr. flipped his commitment from the Louisville Cardinals to the Texas Longhorns on Thursday. 

Moore had been committed to Louisville since May, but a weekend visit to Texas sealed the deal for the Longhorns. 

Moore was national champion St. John Bosco's top receiving threat, especially late in the year, with virtually one TD reception per game while averaging more than 22.0 yards per catch. In St. John Bosco's 24-22 Division 1 CIF Southern Section championship win over Mater Dei Santa Ana-Calif., Moore caught a 72-yard touchdown pass. He has elite sprinting speed (Moore also ran track in high school), which he put on full display in the championship game. Moore ended his senior season with nine touchdown receptions. 

The addition of Moore, who signed on Thursday, gives Texas another key offensive weapon to pair with 5-star quarterback Arch Manning,'s No. 1 overall recruit in the 2023 cycle. Moore is the third ranked receiver in Texas' 2023 class behind Johntay Cook II and Ryan Niblett.
