Former UCLA quarterback Dante Moore is set to become the second transfer quarterback moving to Oregon ahead of next season.

Moore announced his commitment to Oregon on Monday in an Instagram post. The Ducks previously snagged ex-Oklahoma quarterback Dillon Gabriel.

Moore was ranked one of the top five quarterback prospects in the high school Class of 2023, and he initially committed to Oregon out of Martin Luther King Jr. Senior High in Detroit.

He wound up going to UCLA instead and played nine games as a freshman this year for the Bruins, starting five times.

Moore completed 53.5 percent of his passes (114 of 213) this past season for 1,610 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was intercepted nine times. His best outing was a 290-yard, three-touchdown effort in a Sept. 9 win over San Diego State. Moore also threw for 290 yards in a victory over Washington State on Oct. 7.

Gabriel, who has one year of eligibility remaining, is widely viewed as the favorite to replace Heisman Trophy finalist Bo Nix for the Ducks. Moore could be in line to take over the job in 2025.

No. 8 Oregon (11-2) lost the Pac-12 championship game against Washington on Dec. 1 and is headed to the Fiesta Bowl against No. 23 Liberty on Jan. 1, 2024.
