The University of Tulsa picked up its first Class of 2017 commitment from a player outside Oklahoma and Texas on Tuesday night.

Wide receiver Josh Moore of Prattville, Alabama, confirmed to the Tulsa World his commitment to the Hurricane. A two-star athlete, Moore is listed at 5 feet, 10 inches and 164 pounds.

Originally from Alabama, Moore spent the spring semester at Lubbock (Texas) Cooper before returning to Prattville for his senior season. He caught a pair of touchdown passes in his team's season opener last week.

Last year, Moore played quarterback at Prattville, accounting for more than 1,500 yards and scoring 10 touchdowns.

Moore has offers from more than 10 schools including Cincinnati, Tulane, Arkansas State and Troy. He is the third receiver to commit to TU for the Class of 2017, joining Keylon Stokes of Manvel, Texas, and Malik Jackson of Taylor, Texas.

For the class, the Hurricane has 14 verbal commitments, which are non-binding. Recruits can sign letters of intent beginning in February.
