Moore declared for the 2018 NFL Draft last December. Among his many accolades garnered during his three seasons in College Park, he can now add Washington Metro College Player of the Year and future NFL Draft pick to the list.
The D.C. Touchdown Club will be honoring him at their April 12 banquet as the Washington Metro College Player of the Year and he is the third Terp to receive the honor behind Joe Vellano (2013) and Brad Craddock (2015).
D.J. Moore finished his Maryland football career among the best wide receivers the Terps have had come through the program. Standing at six feet, 215 pounds, the Philadelphia native came to the Terps in 2015 out of Imhotep Institute ranked as the 47th best wide receiver and 10th best player in Pennsylvania according to the 247Sports Composite.
Seeing Moore do the things he’s done for the Terps over the last three seasons is remarkable but especially with the lack of stability over his career at the quarterback position. No matter who was in there under center, Moore always made a play.
Evidence of this was very clear this season with the Terps being plagued with injuries as both Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill were lost to ACL injuries and the Terps switched back and forth between their other available quarterbacks.
Here’s how Moore’s career numbers stack up in the Maryland football record book:
- Career Receptions – No. 5 with 146 receptions
- Season Receptions – No. 1 with 80 receptions in 2017
- Season Receptions (By Class) – Leads the junior class with 80 Receptions
- Career Receiving Yards – No. 6 with 2,027 receiving yards
- Career Receiving Touchdowns – No. 4 with 17 touchdowns
- Season Receiving Touchdowns – No. 4 with eight receiving touchdowns as a junior in 2017
