2018 4-star WR talks "big offer for me" from LSU

2018 four-star Yoakum (Tex.) wide receiver Joshua Moore broke down his LSU offer and recruitment with Tiger Blitz.

2018 Yoakum (Tex.) wide receiver Joshua Moore and his twin brother athlete Jordan Moore both picked up LSU offers on Monday night from the Tigers and both said it's a big offer for the two of them. Joshua, who LSU is looking at as a receiver while Jordan at defensive back, grew up watching LSU.

"It was great. LSU has been my dream school ever since I was growing up watching them since I was 12. I've done a lot of research on them," the 6-2, 175-pound receiver said. "I've been wanting this offer for a long time and now I finally got it. It's a great feeling."

With the offer, there's one place you can find the Tigers in Joshua's recruitment.

"At the top."

This past year, Moore took a visit to LSU for a track meet and while he didn't make it back this summer with his brother, Moore said he was still impressed when he was on campus last.

"The campus was great. Everything you want in a program they got with the facilities being nice, the academics were nice. It was great," Moore said.

LSU wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig hasn't talked with Scout's No. 23 overall wide receiver in 2018 about LSU Football much, but the two are building a great relationship by just getting to know each other.

"He told me how much he loved my game and loved my film and everything. I love him already. We talked for a couple days and I feel like I've known him my whole life," Scout's No. 5 ranked receiver in Texas said. "He's a very cool guy to talk to and who wouldn't want to be coached like that for the next four years?"

Alabama, FSU, Texas, Texas A&M, Florida, Tennessee, Illinois and UCLA are some of the schools standing out for Moore, but that doesn't mean a good visit to LSU won't make him commit.

"They're not too far ahead to not get passed up, but they're in the lead right now," Moore said. "It'd be hard to turn down. I think I'd pull the trigger if everything checked out."

With LSU offering his brother too, that makes it even easier to list LSU at the top for Moore.

"That's real big. As of now, we want to play together, but that's not set in stone," Joshua said. "Now that if I want to commit to LSU, we don't have to worry about him waiting on an offer from LSU. That's a good thing."

Moore said he expects to get to LSU this fall for a game, but doesn't have a date set. The No. 138 player overall in 2018 will visit Houston this weekend and then trip to Oklahoma for OU vs. Ohio State.

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
