LSU has landed another commitment for the 2020 class, this time going into New Orleans to pull four-star wide receiver Koy Moore.
Moore announced the decision on live television from his birthday party on Saturday night, putting an end to his recruitment process after double-digit schools came calling with a scholarship offer.
At 6-foot-0.5, 175 pounds, Moore has put in a strong offseason with big showings during both 7-on-7 competitions and team camps. Moore impressed LSU’s staff at the team’s annual Elite Camp in June, where he worked out for a handful of coaches, including wide receivers coach Mickey Joseph and passing game coordinator Joe Brady. He then led The Opening in total receptions across the week of competition in Dallas, Texas this summer.
Moore’s verbal pledge gives the Tigers 23 total commitments for the 2020 class, which jumped LSU ahead of Ohio State for the No. 3 spot in the 247Sports Team Rankings.
He joins an LSU class that now has four wide receiver commitments, which can be argued as the best haul at the position in the country. The four-star prospect joins three other commitments who all rank inside the top seven nationally at the position. The 247Sports Composite ranks Rakim Jarrett as the No. 3 wide receiver in the country, Jermaine Burton the No. 6 wide receiver and Kayshon Boutte the No. 7 wide receiver.
Moore is ranked by the 247Sports Composite as the No. 253 overall prospect in the 2020 class, and he checks in as a Top 10 prospect in Louisiana this cycle.
LSU’s wide receiver haul was expected to reach between three and four prospects in the class, and the addition of Moore likely means the Tigers have wrapped up recruiting the position with a handful of spots still remaining to fill before National Signing Day.
Moore was once committed to Southern Cal, but he opened his recruitment back up this offseason to explore all options. With the four-star prospect now on board with LSU, Moore said his recruitment has now come to an end as he turns the focus to his senior season at Rummel.
Moore’s commitment gives the Tigers another Rummel graduate, with senior cornerback Kristian Fulton and sophomore wide receiver JaMarr Chase having both played for the Raiders in high school.
