Denzel Moore, a linebacker/defensive end from Collins Hill High School in Georgia in the Class of 2023, posted on his Instagram Monday afternoon that he has de-committed from Indiana and re-opened his recruitment.
In the post, Moore thanked the Indiana staff for the opportunity but said he wanted to make sure he and his family explored every option available to him.
“My recruitment is back open,” the post said.
Moore did not immediately return a phone call from the Daily Hoosier for further comment.
Moore, listed at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, is listed as a three-star prospect by 247Sports.com and the No. 26 weakside defensive end in the Class of 2023. Moore’s ranking was expected to rise and he already has a huge offer list that also includes Arizona, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami (Fla.) Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Virginia from the Power 5 conferences according to 247Sports.com.
Moore originally committed to Indiana on March 24. He had maintained a relationship with defensive coordinator Charlton Warren from Warren’s time recruiting him as a defensive backs coach at Georgia. Moore said he expected to be used on the line of scrimmage to rush the quarterback. He was Indiana’s first commit in the 2023 class.
Indiana now has just one class of 2023 commit, running back coach Deland McCullough’s son Daeh. To find more information on IU’s 2021 through 2023 commitments, GO HERE.
