USC is faced with the loss of another wide receiver. This time it comes from the 2020 recruiting class. Four-star wide receiver Koy Moore announced his decommitment from USC on Sunday evening. In a statement made on his twitter account, Moore states that a strained relationship with USC during the coaching changes and the recruitment is not up to his expectations.

The junior out of Metaire, Louisiana is rated as the No. 38 wide receiver in the 2020 class and rated 188th overall per the 247 Sports composite. Moore received an offer from USC back in June of 2018 and committed in August. Moore was also recruited by former Trojans’ offensive coordinator Tee Martin. Following the Trojans’ loss to Arizona State, Martin was relieved from his play calling duties and was let go by USC following the 2018 season.
With the staff changes and USC being miles away from Louisiana, it’s understandable why Moore decommitted. The Trojans are in need to fill up their wide receiving depth following the recent transfers of Trevon Sidney, Josh Imatorbhebhe, Randal Grimes, and Bru McCoy. The good news USC will have a full year to recruit some more wide receivers for the 2020 class and will have potentially three from the 2019 recruiting class if the commitments of Kyle Ford and Puka Nacua holds up.
Moore is the second recruit from the 2020 class to decommit from USC. Four-star St. John Bosco wide receiver Kris Huton, decommitted from the Trojans back in the fall. The USC recruiting class now only consists of two recruits. Five-star quarterback Bryce Young out of Mater Dei and two star kicker Parker Lewis.
