2014 Outlook
Sophomore receiver Alonzo Moore showed flashes of his potential as a playmaker for Nebraska in the 2013 season. A Louisiana native, Moore earned his way into the Huskers’ receiving rotation and was one of Nebraska’s primary kickoff return specialists.

The 6-2, 195-pound speedster hopes to find playing time in a receiving corps that returns seven of its top eight players from last season. Moore underwent offseason shoulder surgery that kept him out of spring ball, but he is expected to be at full speed for the start of fall practice.

2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Moore played in 10 games, making starts against Illinois and Minnesota. He finished with six receptions for 75 yards. He also had five kickoff returns for an average of 23.2 yards per return. Moore had his best day against Northwestern, grabbing four receptions for 43 yards to help fill in after injuries to Kenny Bell and Jamal Turner. Moore also had a 19-yard catch against South Dakota State and added a catch at Minnesota. He had three kickoff returns for 71 yards at Minnesota and two returns for 45 yards against Northwestern.

2012 (Redshirt)
Moore redshirted in his first season in the program in 2012.

Before Nebraska (Winnfield HS)
Moore saw action at quarterback, running back and receiver for Winnfield (La.) High School, helping his team to a 14-1 record and a trip to the Class 2A state championship game in 2011. Moore rushed for 1,473 yards and 22 touchdowns on 156 carries, while throwing for another 442 yards and a touchdown. Moore was a first-team all-state pick and was chosen as the Class 2A Offensive Player of the Year. Moore totaled 26 touchdowns as a senior, including three on returns.

As a junior, Moore earned all-district honors and honorable-mention all-state accolades, while primarily playing receiver. He caught 49 passes for 1,246 yards and 17 touchdowns for Coach Andy Pyles’ team, while also rushing 53 times for 591 yards and nine scores. Moore’s play helped Winnfield to an 8-5 record and a trip to the state quarterfinals.

Moore spent the majority of his time at quarterback in his first two years on varsity. As a sophomore in 2009, he accounted for more than 2,100 total yards to help Winnfield to an 8-4 record. Moore was ranked among the top 50 receivers in the nation by 247 Sports, while Rivals.com listed him as the No. 22 "athlete". Both services ranked Moore among the top 20 overall prospects in Louisiana.

Moore was also an outstanding basketball player and averaged better than 20 points per game during his junior season. During the spring, Moore competed for the track and field team, capturing a gold medal in the Class 2A high jump with a clearance of 6-5 as a senior, while adding a silver medal in the triple jump and a seventh-place finish in the long jump. Moore also visited Mississippi State and Louisiana Tech, in addition to offers from Minnesota, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Ole Miss.
