The Stanford Cardinal football class of 2021 took a big hit this past weekend when four-star safety Josh Moore decommitted from the Card, and instead pledged his allegiance to the USC Trojans. Moore took to Twitter to tell his story and thank Stanford.
“I want to thank Coach (David) Shaw and the rest of the Stanford family for opening their arms to my family and I. They were always supportive of me and I want to thank them for recruiting me. After a deep discussion with my family and some prayer, I have decided to decommit from Stanford University and commit to ...
THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!”
Moore is a four-star defensive back from Marist School in Atlanta, Georgia and was one of four safeties to be committed for the class of 2021.
It’s a tough blow to the class, even if there are multiple other defensive backs committed, as he was one of the higher-ranked players committed for Coach Shaw and Co. He was projected as a impact Power-5 starter and a potential Day 3 NFL draft pick by 247Sports.
Stanford still has three-star safety prospects Mitch Leigber, Jaden Slocum and Caleb Ellis for the Class of 2021.
Good luck in the future, Josh. Just not against Stanford.
