In a weird way, it’s almost as if WSU and the Oklahoma State Cowboys are trading tall wide receivers. C.J. Moore, a former four-star prospect and once the fifth-best high school player in Oklahoma, announced his commitment to the Washington State Cougars today on Twitter:
Tell me MY GOD ain’t real‼️ ID LIKED TO ANNOUNCE THAT I AM COMMITTED TO WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY ‼️‼️ #GoCougs This one for you momma @CoachMinikwu @CoachTalto2 @Coach__Foster @CoachBuhler @NickRolovich @CoachDreAllen26 pic.twitter.com/Hqa1PeeACe— CJ Moore-Sandles (@daddydimes35) October 16, 2020
Moore, who checks in at 6-foot-5 and 175 pounds, had minimal playing time last season as a redshirt freshman, though he did score two touchdowns in his four catches. He transferred to Iowa Central Community College, a school that is apparently waiting to play its season in the spring.
Moore’s offer list coming out of high school was impressive, and according to 247sports, his top six included the Mississippi St. Bulldogs, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Ohio State Buckeyes, Mississippi Rebels and Oregon Ducks. He obviously chose Oklahoma State before finding his way to Pullman. Whether he joins the team in time for spring football in 2021 or next fall is to be determined.
Here’s what he looked like in high school:
And here are some cut ups from fall practices in Iowa this year:
Moore is WSU’s 18th commit in the 2021 class and the fourth wide receiver. Three of them — Moore, Tsion Nunnally, and Joseph Manjack — are listed at 6-2 or taller. You can check out the whole class here:
