Redshirt freshman Alonzo Moore adds explosiveness and play-making ability to a Nebraska receiving corps that is already among the deepest and most experienced in the nation. The 6-2, 185-pound Moore came to Nebraska with the ability to play multiple positions, but the Husker coaching staff quickly recognized his potential at receiver. Moore has made the most of his year in the Husker strength and conditioning program, adding more than 15 pounds of muscle.
In addition to looking to get into the receiving rotation this fall, Moore could also use his explosiveness to help in the Husker return game.
Alonzo Moore redshirted his first season at Nebraska.
Before Nebraska (Winnfield HS)
Moore was an explosive athlete with the ability to contribute at multiple positions, and is expected to begin his career in the secondary. The 6-2, 170-pounder 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.
Moore is the son of Janice Moore, and was born on Nov. 10, 1992.
