DETROIT (BVM) — The quarterback position is arguably the most important on the football field. And the top prep QB in Michigan, Dante Moore, is doing his best to prove he can impact a game at any level.

Like most athletes, Moore’s athletic journey began at a young age. And when he reached high school, he was ready to prove he had what it took to be a top-tier football player. He proved he could be that type of player in his freshman year when he led Martin Luther King to an 11-3 overall record and the Division II state title game.

Many fans and opponents saw firsthand what Moore could do on the field. And another person who witnessed Moore’s greatness was King head football coach Tyron Spencer.  

“It doesn’t even matter who the receivers are,” Spencer told Sports Illustrated. “He’s just putting that ball where it needs to be; his accuracy and ball placement is phenomenal.” 

Following his sophomore year, Moore would take his play to another level during his junior season. During his junior campaign, Moore passed for 3,047 yards, 40 TD passes and only three interceptions. He also led King to a state title. Having that type of output in football can lead to significant opportunities like playing at the DI level.

Moore received a plethora of interest from numerous DI colleges. Colleges like Oregon, LSU, Florida, FSU, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Wisconsin and others. Moore had a total of 40 offers entering the summer of 2022. Nonetheless, Moore had to make a decision. And on July 8, Moore made his decision to commit to Oregon.

“The most important thing to me was, of course, going to a program that’s going to develop quarterbacks,” Moore told 247Sports. “The main thing going from high school to college is development. Another piece, of course, will be facilities to help me to reach my goals through college, injuries and anything like that.”

When Moore joins the Ducks, he’ll have the opportunity to play for one of the best up-and-coming coaches in college football: Dan Lanning. Lanning was introduced as Oregon’s 35th head football coach in December 2021. Before coming to Oregon, Lanning was the defensive coordinator at Georgia, where he helped the Bulldogs win a national championship and have the top defense in the country.

One can see there’s little to no doubt that Moore has the potential to excel at the next level. And at the age of 17, Moore is ready to capitalize on that potential. The competition at the college level will be demanding, but a great player like Moore is prepared to perform at the highest level. 

“[Moore’s a] solid athlete who has added more mobility to his game as the years have gone on, but is not likely to be a big threat as a designed runner, but can do a little bit of that if needed,” 247Sports national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu said. “[He] works extremely hard, and that total package projects him to be a multi-year college starter and someone who can be an early draft choice.”
