Missouri landed another commitment Saturday when Olathe North’s Josh Moore committed to the Tigers during an official visit.
Moore originally committed to Ohio State and later switched to Kansas in October before de-committing from the Jayhawks last week.
He said on Twitter that KU was a great place, but “just not meant for me.”
Never miss a local story.
Apparently, Moore, who was a standout tight end and defensive end for the Eagles, believes Missouri is meant for him.
Moore, who was recruited by associate head coach/quarterbacks coach Andy Hill, is a 6-foot-5, 250-pound Rivals three-star recruit. He is ranked No. 6 in the state and No. 27 nationally at tight end.
However, Moore tweeted Saturday afternoon that he was switching to defense with the Tigers.
Moore is the 23rd known commitment and fourth defensive end in MU’s 2015 recruiting class. He joines Marcell Frazier from College of the Siskiyous in Weed, Calif., Tyrell Jacobs from Rummel High School in Metairie, La., and Nate Howard from Ladue High School in suburban St. Louis, who committed to the Tigers on Friday night.
Moore might have enough size to project as an interior lineman as well, depending on how defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski and Missouri’s staff choose to develop him.
