Oregon landed one of its highest-rated recruits ever on Thursday, earning a pledge from five-star wide receiver Dakorien Moore. The Duncanville, Texas, native is the top-rated receiver and the No. 5 overall class of 2025 recruit, per 247Sports. Kayvon Thibodeaux, the No. 6 overall prospect from the class of 2019, was the Ducks' previous highest-ranked commitment, according to 247Sports. ESPN also ranked Moore as the top wide receiver and the No. 3 overall prospect. Linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux was rated No. 1 by ESPN when he committed to Oregon in 2019. Moore originally pledged to LSU but backed out in May. He visited Ohio State on May 31, revisited LSU the next week and toured Texas in mid-June before looking at Oregon on June 21. Moore told 247Sports that he chose the Ducks because he wants to be "different." "I want to be a part of something legendary. I see coach (Dan) Lanning building a program that will win a national championship," he said. "I feel like (Oregon wide receivers) coach (Junior) Adams will develop me into the best wide receiver and man outside of football, and the culture is different there most of all." Moore, who is 5-foot-11, 182 pounds, has caught 130 passes for 2,653 yards and 29 touchdowns over three seasons at Duncanville High School, according to CBS Sports. Moore joins Oregon's class of 2025 that includes fellow wide receiver recruits Dallas Wilson (Tampa), Isaiah Mozee (Lee's Summit, Mo.) and Cooper Perry (Scottsdale, Ariz.). --Field Level Media
