Oregon earns commitment from rising 2023 edge rusher out of California
All Jaeden Moore does is get after the quarterback, and he’ll do so at the college level in Eugene.
The rising edge rusher from Visalia (Calif.) Central Valley Christian announced his commitment to Oregon on Wednesday. Moore chose the Ducks over Washington, Cal, and Arizona, among others.

A 6-foot-4, 230-pound edge prospect, Moore rates as a 3-star in the industry-generated 247 Composite. He’s the 53rd-ranked player at his position and the 48th-ranked recruit from the state of California.
Oregon made up ground here. The Ducks didn’t offer Moore until June—while he was in Seattle for an official visit to Washington. He took an official to Arizona and then to Cal to close out the month of June. In late July, he was in for an unofficial visit during the Ducks’ Saturday Night Live event.
Moore is one of the more versatile players in the region, and his production as a junior last fall was remarkable on both sides of the football. As a tight end, he hauled in 60 receptions for 975 yards and 13 touchdowns in 16 games. On defense, he racked up 155 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, 17 sacks, four blocked kicks, and three forced fumbles.
His verbal pledge brings the Ducks’ class to 16 known commits in the 2023 cycle. You can view Moore’s highlight tape below, via Hudl:
