The Oklahoma State football program made the top 6 of four-star Union wide receiver C.J. Moore when he announced the list on Twitter on March 7.
The Oklahoma State football program has gained some considerable momentum on the recruiting trail of late. The Cowboys currently have four players committed in the 2018 recruiting class, highlighted by four-star quarterback Spencer Sanders.
Another big time recruit in the 2018 class trimmed his list down to just six teams. Tulsa, OK, product C.J. Moore announced his final six on Twitter on March 7. Those six schools included the Oregon Ducks, Ohio State Buckeyes, Ole Miss Rebels, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Mississippi State Bulldogs, and OK State.
OK State is the only in-state school that Moore has on his list. The Oklahoma Sooners were considered an original favorite to land Moore, but it seems his interest in going to Norman has declined. However, there is some real stiff competition on that top 6 list. OSU, Oregon, and Nebraska, still compete at the top level of the college football world in recruiting.
Moore is listed as a four-star wide receiver from Union High School in Tulsa. According to 247Sports, Moore ranks as 19th best receiver in the country, 92nd best player overall, and the third best player in the state of Oklahoma.
Along with Sanders, Moore would be a huge addition to the OK State offense. Using Sanders as a point of appeal in the recruiting process could be very smart for OK State head coach Mike Gundy as well.
Moore currently holds offers from 20 schools. Outside of his top six, he still has offers from programs like the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers, Texas Longhorns, Georgia Bulldogs, and Texas A&M Aggies. That’s an impressive list of schools. Considering he chose OK State in his top six means the Pokes are doing something right on his recruiting trail.
Bringing in the third best player in the state of Oklahoma could do wonders for the Cowboy football program. Moore hails from one of the best, if not the best, high school football program in the state.
Moore has incredible length at 6’3″, with a good wingspan as well. He would be a welcome add to offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich’s spread offense with the Cowboys.
