The senior has committed to Greg Schiano's Scarlet Knights and will soon start practicing with the team.

Moore broke the news on Twitter, saying, "I want to thank Coach Schiano and the Rutgers staff for believing me and giving me a chance. I won't disappoint."

His scholarship will not start at the beginning of freshman practice and he won't be eligible to play in a game until after the 2021 season, reported

During Senior Night in November, it was announced that Moore had three scholarship offers, including one from the University of Massachusetts.

Although he played mostly wide receiver and defensive end for the Zebras, several experts say he projects as a tight end in college because of his size and athleticism - he's also a star on the basketball team.

According to, Moore is the 17th high school prospect to commit to the Rutgers and the 11th New Jersey prospect to join this recruiting class, which is the first for Schiano since he returned for a second stint as coach in December
