Quentin Moore is a big kid at 6'6" and heading to 250 lbs. The Inglemoor High School (WA) tight end just landed an equally big offer for himself which will move him way up the recruiting charts. Riding a wave of 7 on 7 performances, Moore has moved up enough to gain an offer from Nevada. That made him a D-1 recruit right out of the gate. His size and speed only make him an even hotter prospect.
Then this happened:

Quentin landed an offer from big-time D1 school Louisville of the ACC Conference. That is a great offer from one of the Nation's most powerful leagues. No doubt the Pac 12 schools are all waking up to the fact that they have some catching up to do now. We look for offers to come in buckets now that the ice has been broken.
Right now 247 Sports / Scout have him as a Zero Star athlete and Rivals does not even have him listed. That will all change as he moves up to a 3 or 4 Star in the coming weeks. This, once again, is a reminder to you all that Stars do not create offers, talent does that. Focus on the talent and the Stars will follow.
"Stop sleeping on him," said Tracy Ford of FSP who trains Moore in the offseason. Ford has a wide reach and perhaps as many or more college coaches in his Rolodex than anyone else in the Pacific NW. No doubt he helped this offer along and he has lauded high praise on Moore.
7 on 7 aside we looked at Quentin's film from his Junior campaign and it is very legit. We see great hands and strength. His speed is also obvious and he has a great stride length which makes him hard to bring down or catch. Beyond that and perhaps his best asset is his ability to move in space and create situations where his QB's can connect. His routes are clean and at times he simply is right where he needs to be.
His upside appears to be huge as it is clear in watching him that he is just learning how to dominate opponents. There are very few of any corners or safeties who can cover a guy like this and the linebackers out there will not be able to hang with him past 10 or 15 yards.
Based upon all of this and the years of analysis we have done on top tight ends we believe Quentin Moore to be in a class of his own right now and the Louisville staff is to be commended for paying attention to a NW kid and reacting to what they see with such a nice offer!
Quentin Moore's 2018 Season Film is right here- have a look and best wishes to Quentin as recruiting 2019 moves ahead.
