Oregon tends to win 5-star QB Dante Moore after Steve Wiltfong’s Crystal Ball pick



The Oregon Ducks are having a huge recruiting weekend for their football program with several five-star players due to hit town Friday morning. The weekend just got bigger and potentially more impactful with the news of this five-star quarterback Dante Moore will visit the ducks for an unofficial visit.

To top off last weekend’s hype, Steven Wiltfong, director of recruiting at 247 Sports, placed a crystal globe in favor of Oregon following his month-long coverage Thursday afternoon. Two weeks ago, on his Whiparound Recruiting Show, Wiltfong said the Ducks were putting themselves in the best position to secure a signing of the No. 4 quarterback.

“With reference to Dante Moore – Notre Dame has been skinny for at least the last five months – Notre Dame I think they’re trying to get back into this one,” Wiltfong said on June 14. “There’s communication, they’d still like to have him as part of their Class of 2023. But I think that recruitment has really changed, talking to the people around them, talking to Dante at the event. My opinion is that you have Oregon in the best position. I think the ducks are the ones I’m watching the most closely at the moment. Well, this is a fluid recruitment and things are subject to change. But he made his official visit to Oregon for the spring game. He’s at Texas A&M this weekend so we’ll see if the Aggies can make a difference.”

Wiltfong has a 91.3% success rate on his crystal ball predictions in the 2023 cycle. He has set a crystal ball confidence level of six out of ten for this prediction.

Moore will arrive in Eugene this weekend for an unofficial visit and spend time with the Duck coaching staff and Oregon’s other high-profile visitor list. He paid an official visit to Oregon on April 29 and will mark his second trip to Eugene.

Other visitors this weekend include five-star rim Matayo Uigalelei, five-star running back Richard Youngand four-star rim prospect Jayden Wayne.

Moore is one of the highest-scoring candidates the Ducks have ever chased in college football’s recruit-ranking era. Should Wiltfong’s prediction come true, Moore would become Oregon’s highest-rated quarterback in program history and the fifth-highest-rated player ever to end up with the Ducks. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Justin Flowe, Haloti Ngata and Jonathan Stewart are the only ducks ranked higher than Moore to sign with the scheme.
