After recovering from a high ankle sprain as a senior and switching positions from wide receiver to safety for the final month of the season Jordan Moore a 6-foot-2, 195-pounder from Lithonia, Ga., became one of the top targets in the Southeast.
Moore narrowed it down to a final two of Auburn and TCU and in a shocking turn of events he selected the Horned Frogs over the Tigers on Fox Sports South’s recruiting show featuring recruiting National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons.
“I chose TCU because I felt like it was the place God was leading me towards,” Moore explained. “Also I feel that coach (Gary) Paterson and I have the same dreams of becoming champions.”
“With that being said I want to thank all of the coaches around the nation for affording me a plethora of opportunities to maximize my talents at the next level.”
“Lastly, I want to thank God for blessing me with a family like mine to drive m on the path of success,” Moore continued about his decision.
In addition to offers from TCU and Auburn, Moore also pulled down scholarships from Ohio State, Michigan State, North Carolina, Penn State and Mississippi.
“As I close I would like to say GO HORNED FROGS!!!!!!!”
Moore is also a track stand-out, one of the best in the country. He has posted a time of 7.28 seconds in the 55-meter hurdles, which is the fastest in the nation this season for a high school athlete in that event. He said his goal is to break the indoor record for high school athletes of 7.08 seconds.
