Dante Moore, 5-star QB out of Detroit, announces commitment
Dante Moore drew plenty of attention on Friday as the 5-star quarterback, who is ranked the No. 4 player at his position in the country, made his commitment announcement on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
Moore is listed at 6-foot-2 1/2 and 210 pounds, and has a reported 40 offers, with LSU, Oregon, Michigan, Notre Dame and Texas A&M in the mix among his finalists. He is rated the No. 1 player in the state of Michigan, by the 247Sports Composite. Moore chose Oregon.
Moore said the most important thing is getting to a program that will develop quarterbacks. Facilities and having a program with playmakers also play a factor.
Moore said Oregon’s offensive coordinator, Kenny Dillingham, recruited him before the coach arrived at Oregon, and that relationship was a big key to his decision.
Here’s his scouting report from 247Sports:
Varsity starter since his freshman season. Has played well against top competition and in clutch situations in big games. Mature, polished, does not appear to rattle easily. Stands in against the rush and will deliver throws while taking hits. Does a nice job of reading coverages and does well throwing into windows against zone coverages. Anticipates well and gets rid of the ball quickly. Throws with good touch down the field. Can fire it in there when he needs to. Has good arm strength but would not classify the pure velocity as elite. Very consistent with ball placement and mechanics as we have seen very few wayward passes from him through three years of game and camp eval. Solid athlete who has added more mobility to his game as the years have gone on, but is not likely to be a big threat as a designed runner, but can do a little bit of that if needed. Physical traits are good, but it is his intangible traits that are elite. Works extremely hard and that total package projects him to be a multi-year college starter and someone who can be an early draft choice.
