2013 Depth Chart Mizzou is stacked with long receivers in 2013, but Moore might find a place if he shows decent polish and top-end speed.
2014 Depth Chart The departures of Marcus Lucas and L'Damian Washington will open up the depth chart a bit for youngsters who don't see many targets in 2013.

"I feel it's the best fit for me," Moore said. "I feel good about it. I feel like I can do big things there and help contribute in their quest for a national title."

Moore said he called his recruiting coach, Craig Kuligowski, to deliver the news.

"Coach Kul" didn't hide his excitement.

"He was happy, real happy," Moore said. "He kept telling me he was jumping around, and how excited he was."

Moore is a tough receiver to get a feel for. He has very good size, height, long arms and is very smooth for a bigger target. At this level he has been used as a short and deep target with very little route variety to intermediate levels outside of the 18 yard comeback route to the sideline. Drives off the ball with a long, smooth stride. […] However, Moore can be perplexing because he does not come off the ball with much surge or sense of urgency, yet after the catch he gives you just that. His wiggle and elusiveness is very surprising and while he is not a burner, he is quick and shifty with the ball in his hands and can make the first defender miss.
