One of the more underrated quarterbacks in the state over the past couple of seasons has been Bellarmine Prep’s Christian Moore, but earlier this week, he made the decision to commit to Central Washington and he couldn’t be happier.
Moore announced his decision to commit to Central Washington earlier this week on his Twitter page.
I am truly blessed to announce I have committed to Central Washington University. Go Wildcats ???????????? All glory to God. pic.twitter.com/cHs14U9Dro

“I called coach (Ian) Shoemaker and he and the staff were in a meeting, but when he answered, I told him that I wanted to be a Wildcat and he was really excited,” Moore told Northwest Elite Index. “He set the phone down and put me on speaker and he said that I had just committed and all of the coaches were really excited.”
Moore has yet to take his official visit to Ellensburg, but that will change the first weekend of January.
“I did get over there in the spring, but I loved everthing about it,” Moore said. “I asked myself after the visit if I could see myself there for four years and I just felt comfortable there.
“The coaches were great and the offense they run there fits me perfectly, but most of all, they just graduated their senior quarterback, so the spot is open to compete for and that was a big thing too.
“I’m excited to be part o the program over there.”
Moore chose Central Washington over an offer from San Diego as well as offers from Linfield and College of the Redlands.
As a senior this season, Moore completed 70% of his passes for nearly 2,000 yards with 17 touchdowns and four interceptions, leading his team to a 7-4 record.
At 6’5, 220 pounds, Moore has the size to stand tall in the pocket, but he’s also a very good athlete with the ability to escape trouble and keep plays alive with his legs.
