The Washington Huskies got a huge addition to their receiving room this week when the nation’s No. 1 junior-college tight end prospect committed to return to Seattle. Quentin Moore, the former Kenmore Inglemoor tight end plays for Independence Community College, the program featured on the past two seasons of Netflix’ Last Chance U.

Moore will sign in December and enroll in January and have two years to play for the Huskies following. He told 247Sports that there wasn’t just one specific reason why he chose Washington, but rather a handful of reasons.

“There is no one reason why I picked Washington, it was everything Washington had to offer that sold me,” Moore said. “I am really close with coach (Derham) Cato so that just made it that much easier to choose.”

It makes sense, to be honest, having that close relationship with your position coach but also being from the area. He also told 247Sports that his mother is extremely happy for him to be close by.

He not only ranks as the top tight end prospect but he is a top-10 overall player in the JUCO ranks for this recruiting class, cracking it right at the No. 10 spot for all JUCO players.

His dad, Mark Moore, played for Oklahoma State back in the 80’s and played for the Seattle Seahawks in 1987 as well.

He was a three-star prospect out of high school and graduated in 2019 but was unable to make the cut academically, and had to go to Independence CC.

Still, Moore is returning after lettering at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, Washington and brings with him a big frame for the Huskies to get the ball to next season at 6’5, 240.
