KHere’s the latest on elite quarterbacks such as Dante Moore, Arch Manning, Jaden Rashada, and Eli Holstein in the 2023 college football recruiting class.
Things are really starting to pick up when it comes to the 2023 college football recruiting class, as players are taking more visits and more are starting to announce commitments.
This is also true of quarterbacks in the 2023 college football recruiting class. We broke it down recently, but there’s only a handful of top-25 rated signal-callers still uncommitted and that number shrunk by three in the past week thanks to a slew of commitments.
18 of the top 25 according to the 247 sports composite rankings are now committed. Ole Miss added Marcel Reed, while Arkansas was able to win the commitment of Malachi Singleton, the No. 24 quarterback in the class. Pittsburgh also found its guy over the weekend as four-star QB Kenny Minchey announced his pledge to the Panthers.
Yet when you look at the top 10 quarterbacks in the 2023 college football recruiting class, five of the top guys are still available and that’s where this update will focus starting with five-star quarterback Dante Moore.
Dante Moore contenders: Notre Dame football, Oregon, LSU, and Michigan
Last month, Notre Dame football was in a really good position for Moore and according to the On3.com prediciton machine, had nearly a 90-percent chance of winning his commitment. There was even talk of a spring commitment on his visit to South Bend.
Unfortunately, for the Irish, that didn’t happen and since then, Notre Dame football’s chances have been dropping according to On3.com, which now gives the Irish a 49-percent chance of winning this recruitment after surges from LSU and Oregon.
Moore visited LSU a couple of weeks ago and Joe Burrow even met with the five-star quarterback. Then, Moore was in Oregon this past weekend for an official visit and he came out of that saying Oregon was near the top of his list.
Dante has played his recruitment close to the vest and right now, it’s hard to say who the leader is, although If I had to guess I would say Oregon or Notre Dame. LSU is at 24 percent according to the prediction machine while Oregon is at 13.
Oregon has a new head coach in Dan Lanning and one thing that’s important to Moore is having the chance to play early. At Oregon, that might happen easier than it would at Notre Dame, Michigan, or even LSU.
The Ducks also have some of the best facilities in college football and recruit at an elite level. Moore probably believes he can compete for a national championship there and start right away.
Notre Dame football has been selling him that same opportunity, but it seems like Oregon made some real progress this weekend. However, Dante Moore also doesn’t sound like he’s making a decision soon, so there is still plenty of time, even for Michigan to get more into the mix.
As far as Oregon, Moore isn’t the only top-10 prospect they are heavily in the mix for.
