Justin's Recruiting Bites|Recruit Rankings
Deon Moore should see his recruitment reach new heights in the future after earning his first offer from UAB last month.
Moore is a sophomore at Center Point High School in Alabama. He plays on both sides of the football for the Eagles, splitting time at wide receiver and defensive back.
The 2025 recruit said he was in disbelief when the Blazers offered him.
“It felt unreal it actually happened,” said Moore. “I was just grateful they believed in me enough to offer me. Hopefully, it is many more to come.”
There are other schools showing interest in Moore, including Mississippi State. This spring and summer could be big for him as he will have an opportunity to show some growth heading into his junior season. The Center Point product is projected to be a highly recruited prospect, based on his length and playmaking ability.
At 6-foot and 170 pounds, Moore is a lengthy prospect, who has a nose for the football. He feels his ‘balls skill and intelligence on the field’ combined with his position versatility are among his biggest strengths.
Moore’s length and ball skills are what college coaches are searching for at the cornerback position, which is what position Moore will most likely play at the next level. The 2025 recruit is looking to improve his physical presence in the future.
“I think I need to improve on me being more physical as a defensive back and learning how to use my length to my advantage,” said Moore. I also want to become more of a vocal leader to my team and teammates.”
