2016 Outlook
Senior Alonzo Moore is a key part of a receiving corps that should be among the nation’s best in 2016. Moore is one of five returning receivers who have made extensive contributions during their Nebraska career, including fellow fifth-year seniors Brandon Reilly and Jordan Westerkamp.

The 6-2, 195-pound Moore had a strong junior season and showed his ability as a big-play threat for the Huskers, grabbing seven catches of at least 20 yards. Moore was one of six Huskers with at least 24 receptions in 2015 and his six touchdown receptions ranked second on the team, as did his average of 16.5 yards per reception.

Moore also became involved in the running game, regularly carrying the ball on end-around plays. The speedy Moore also has contributed on kickoff returns throughout his career and could factor into that role again in 2016.

Moore is on track to earn his degree in sociology in December of 2016.

2015 (Junior)
Moore helped Nebraska feature one of the Big Ten’s top passing offenses. He played in 12 games with five starts, while missing the Purdue game with an injury. Moore tied for fourth on the team with 24 receptions for 395 yards and six touchdowns. He added 106 rushing yards on 14 carries.

Moore opened the year with a flourish, catching three passes for 48 yards and a touchdown against BYU. He had a career-high five receptions, including a touchdown, against South Alabama. He also combined to rush for 43 yards in the two games, including a season-long 19-yard run against the Jaguars.

Moore had three catches for 65 yards against Michigan State, including a 43-yard third-quarter catch to set up a touchdown. A week later, he had a career-long 44-yard touchdown reception in a victory at Rutgers.

Before Nebraska (Winnfield HS)

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 spent the majority of his time at quarterback in his first two years. 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. Moore was also an outstanding basketball player and averaged better than 20 points per game during his junior season. During the spring, Moore captured a gold medal in the Class 2A high jump with a jump of 6-5, while adding a silver medal in the triple jump and a seventh-place finish in the long jump.
