The top prospect changed his mind after first committing to Oregon
After first committing to Oregon, QB prospect Dante Moore has now decided he’ll play for the UCLA Bruins according to ESPN.
Moore is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback from Detroit high school Martin Luther King High School.
Moore told ESPN: “I went on a visit to UCLA. I talked to God and my people and really within myself. I knew that UCLA was the right move for me.”
He also indicated that a big factor in moving from Oregon to UCLA was due to former Oregon offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham taking a head-coaching position at Arizona State.
In regard to Oregon, Moore said: “It's a spot that I truly love still. No love lost at all. I appreciate them recruiting me and taking my commitment and understanding my position.”
Another reason Moore is deciding to move to UCLA is the fact that they’ll be playing in the Big Ten starting in 2024.
He continued: “The TV time and exposure is going to be great for me to market myself as being a quarterback and being an athlete at this point.”
Moore will be under head coach Chip Kelly, the former NFL head coach with a tenured history.
Of working with Kelly, Moore said: “Coach Kelly, him being in the game for so long and being in the NFL and being in college and recruiting young kids, he told us not to rush anything.
“Coach Kelly is a funny guy, very intelligent. He knows a lot about the body and how quarterbacks work and has a program that helps benefit the player. ... I know Coach Kelly is a great mentor and a person I can trust my years being in college.”
