Texas A&M football has a busy quarterback position in the 2023 draft class, but bringing five-star QB Dante Moore to visit College Station is tremendous.
Earlier this week, when Eli Holstein, a former Texas A&M football commitment to Alabama, there was talk of a quarterback domino falling.
The bottom line was that Alabama was out of the question for five-star QB Arch Manning. However, other dominoes are starting to fall, or at least they’re lining up, as Jaden Rashada and Dante Moore are the two five-star QBs to watch along with Arch.
Texas A&M football never saw much interest from Arch Manning. The Aggies had signed Holstein, but ever since he reopened things and later signed for Alabama, Jimbo Fisher and his crew have struggled.
Rashada was a key target and while the Aggies are trending up at least a little on his recruitment, Dante Moore could be A&M’s best opportunity to land a five-star QB in the QB class, according to On3.com’s prediction engine 2023
Dante Moore’s visit to A&M is a huge opportunity
Moore recently attended Michigan Football, the in-state program and former leader, but he followed suit by scheduling an unofficial visit to Texas A&M Football June 17-19.
Here’s what Moore told 247 Sports about the Aggies and what piqued his interest:
“The only visit currently scheduled for Dante Moore was Texas A&M as of the June 17-19 weekend. This is actually an opportunity for him to go there and learn more about the history of the program. And he told me he’s very curious about how Texas A&M signed Class #1 and he’d like to see what’s so special down there. And so A&M turns Dante Moore’s head a bit.”
NIL will be a factor for a quarterback like Moore, but I don’t think that’s what he means. He wants to win, play immediately and play for an elite program. A&M has it all, plus Jimbo Fisher has his own track record of developing NFL QBs.
What is interesting for me is that it is an unofficial visit. That opens the door for him to make an official visit to College Station, and I think it has to be for the Aggies to be a real threat.
This first visit is all about becoming a player in that recruitment, and if that mission succeeds and the Aggies bring Dante Moore back to campus, then A&M could land a five-star QB in 2023 after all.
