Texas A&M defensive back commit Jordan Moore being pushed to flip by LSU, others

2018 four-star Yoakum defensive back Jordan Moore recapped his visit to LSU and how a flip from Texas A&M could happen.

2018 Yoakum (Tex.) defensive back Jordan Moore has been committed to Texas A&M since last December, but as summer approaches, he's looking to shut his recruitment down for good. The four-star defensive back took a visit to LSU last month and came away impressed.

"It was good. I loved it actually," Moore told Scout. "It's the first time I got to see them face to face and talk to them. They told me that they really wanted me and I'm a really high target from them.

The Texas defensive back said that while you can pick up a lot of offers, having one from LSU shows you've really arrived as a defensive back.

"Getting an offer from LSU is big. Any DB can get an offer, but not getting an LSU offer means they can't say they're at the top like they want to be," Moore said. "Getting an offer really shows me that I'm one of the best DBs in the nation and I feel honored to have that."

The Scout 300 prospect talked with Corey Raymond and Ed Orgeron on Friday when he wasn't able to make the trip over to Baton Rouge ahead of the Pylon 7-on-7 Tournament, but said that he talks with Raymond and lead player personnel analyst Brian Squegila almost every day.

"I talk to coach Raymond a lot. Me and coach Raymond and coach Squigs (Brian Squegila) talk almost everyday," Moore said. "He messages me a Bible scripture every morning and a little message after that. Me and coach Raymond just talk every other night, keeping in touch and trying to build that relationship."

The 5-11, 170-pound defensive back plans to shut his recruitment down fully by the end of May, wanting to give other schools a shot to flip from from his pledge to the Aggies over the next month or so.

"I'm still solid to Texas A&M, but at the same time, I want to give every school a chance to show me why I need to change and give A&M a chance to show me why I chose that school," Moore said. "It's like home to me because a lot of family went there and I just want to see them progress and win.

"It's going to be tough for me to be flipped, but at the same time, anything can happen."

Alabama, Florida, TCU, Texas and USC are the other schools in hot pursuit of Moore for him to flip. Moore plans to get over to LSU in a few weeks when his brother, four-star IMG Academy wide receiver Joshua Moore is back home, who will decide this summer and has LSU in the mix.
