You never know how things are going to go when a recruit goes through the junior college process, but Tramonda Moore found his answer.
A one-time major target for Oklahoma out of OKC John Marshall for the 2016 class is going to have to wait two years, but he’ll be a Sooner.
Moore, a top-ranked junior college offensive guard, was offered by OU earlier Sunday afternoon and committed later in the evening.
Moore seemed like a shoo-in for OU’s 2016 class, but there were academic concerns throughout his recruitment and it became clear he wasn’t going to be able to qualify. He was a Scout 300 prospect back then.
Instead of being discouraged, Moore has fought hard in the classroom and on the field and everything has Moore on track to be ready for the 2018 class and have three years to play two seasons’ worth of eligibility.
Moore is the former high school teammate of OU freshman defensive back Justin Broiles, and the two have remained great friends even after leaving John Marshall.
Moore is OU’s 10th commitment for the 2018 class and the first to come from the junior college ranks. With his relationship already forged with offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh, little time was needed for Moore to make his call.
