Marcus Moore becomes second Crespi player in UCLA’s 2016 class

In less than 24 hours, UCLA has secured a pair of commitments from Crespi High, located just 11 miles north of the Bruins’ campus.

The first domino was fullback Jalen Starks, who announced on Thursday night his decision to join UCLA’s 2016 class. On Friday morning, defensive end Marcus Moore followed suit.

This marks the first time that UCLA has received multiple commitments from Crespi since 2008, when they signed quarterback Kevin Prince and defensive back E.J. Woods. Tight end Joe Fauria also ended up in Westwood after originally signing with Notre Dame in 2008.

The last two Bruins to come out of Crespi were receiver Devin Lucien in 2011, and safety Tyler Foreman in 2013. They have since transferred to Arizona State and Portland State, respectively.

Listed at 6-foot-3, 234 pounds, Moore is rated as a three-star prospect by both and The latter also ranks him as the fifth-best defensive end in California.

Moore recorded 33 tackles and 3.5 sacks as a junior last fall. He also made the Los Angeles Daily News All-Area first team as an offensive lineman.
