Receiver Alonzo Moore was a regular part of the Huskers’ receiving rotation throughout the 2014 season and is hopeful of having a bigger impact in 2015. The 6-2, 195-pound Moore has excellent speed and elusiveness, making him a threat in the return game as well as the passing game.
Moore played in 11 games and made seven starts in 2014, but battled nagging injuries late in the season that limited his impact. Moore’s 10 receptions ranked fifth on the team, and the Louisiana native was also a regular in the kickoff return game.
2014 (Sophomore) Moore played in the first 11 games of the season, before missing the finale at Iowa and the Holiday Bowl because of injury. Moore started seven of the first eight games and had 10 receptions for 136 yards. He also had three kickoff returns for 53 yards.
Moore caught three passes for 26 yards against Miami and had two receptions against Rutgers. He had a season-long 43-yard reception at Michigan State, keeping the Huskers’ comeback hopes alive late in the fourth quarter.
2012 (Redshirt) Moore redshirted in his first season in the program in 2012.
Before Nebraska (Winnfield HS) Moore saw action at quarterback, running back and receiver for Winnfield (La.) High School, helping his team to a 14-1 record and a trip to the Class 2A state championship game in 2011.

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’s play helped Winnfield to an 8-5 record and a trip to the state quarterfinals.
Moore spent the majority of his time at quarterback in his first two years on varsity. 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, while Rivals.com listed him as the No. 22 "athlete". Both services ranked Moore among the top 20 overall prospects in Louisiana.
Moore was also an outstanding basketball player and averaged better than 20 points per game during his junior season. During the spring, Moore competed for the track and field team, capturing a gold medal in the Class 2A high jump with a clearance of 6-5 as a senior, while adding a silver medal in the triple jump and a seventh-place finish in the long jump. Moore also visited Mississippi State and Louisiana Tech, in addition to offers from Minnesota, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Ole Miss.
