“First and foremost, I would like to thank God,” Moore said in the video. “Without Him, nothing is possible. I would like to thank my parents for all the sacrifices they’ve made for my brother and I. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you to my teammates and coaches for always pushing me to my limit every day and not letting me get complacent. Thank you to my trainers, Justin Woodall and Kevin Brown for assisting in my skill development. Finally, I would like to thank all the universities that have offered me a scholarship. With all that said, home is where the heart is. Roll Tide.”
Hewitt-Trussville’s roster for the upcoming season now includes four commitments for Alabama. Pierce Quick, a five-star offensive tackle in the class of 2019, has part of Alabama’s recruiting efforts since he committed in 2017. Quarterback Paul Tyson, a 2019 prospect and the great-grandson of legendary coach Paul W. “Bear” Bryant, is also committed. 2020 wide receiver commit Dazalin Worsham is a fellow member of Moore’s class.
Moore is ranked as a four-star prospect and the No. 148 overall player in the class of 2020 according to the 247Sports Composite. He’s the No. 13 cornerback in the nation and the No. 7 recruit in the state of Alabama. Including Moore, Alabama now holds commitments from four of the top seven in-state players for 2020. Tennessee has one commitment, while the other two remain undecided.
Moore is the second defensive back commitment in the class of 2020, joining four-star prospect Javier Morton of Stone Mountain, Ga.
Moore is entering his junior season this fall. He is listed at 5-foot-11 and 171 pounds.
Alabama’s 2020 class is currently ranked second in the nation behind Miami, according to 247Sports.
