Trying to capitalize on some of its momentum on the field, the University of Louisville football staff has offered a scholarship to one of the elite wide receivers nationally in the Class of 2018.
Yoakum, Tex., four-star wide receiver Joshua Moore - who landed offers last week from LSU and Ohio State - has landed an offer from the Cardinals' staff. He now has a total of 32 offers.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Moore is ranked as the No. 138 player in the country by Scout.com and checks in at No. 23 among wide receivers. He's the No. 5 wide receiver in the Midlands region.
Scout's Midlands recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks' eval of Joshua Moore:
"Joshua Moore is a versatile receiver prospect who excels at the "small-school" level of Texas high school football as a receiver, quarterback, defensive back, and special teams standout. Moore possesses a good frame for the receiver position with the requisite height to gain good bulk as he matures. He shows impressive burst with the ball in his hands, whether in the screen game or as a wildcat quarterback. Moore is a field-stretching vertical threat when lined up wide. He also flashes the ability to win balls over smaller defenders. He'll need to add weight and strength to compete against larger defensive backs in college, both as a pass-catcher and as a perimeter blocker, but the tools are there for Moore to be an impact receiver at the Power Five conference level." -- Gabe Brooks
