Former UCLA quarterback Dante Moore will transfer to Oregon, per Hayes Fawcett of On3 Sports. He follows Dillon Gabriel as the second high-profile QB to head to Eugene this offseason.

The Detroit product was a five-star QB prospect in last year’s recruiting class and arrived to UCLA as the potential successor to Dorian Thompson-Robinson. He got playing time right away for the Bruins and went through a true freshman season filled with growing pains and injuries. Through nine games, he threw for 1,610 yards with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Following the end of the season, he ultimately decided to enter the transfer portal after just one year in Los Angeles.

Moore’s decision to head to Eugene is interesting as he’ll most likely sit behind Gabriel during the 2024. He has three years of collegiate eligibility remaining and given the success Bo Nix just had as a Heisman Trophy finalist, he’s most likely playing the long game and banking on the development of the program paying off.
