Christian Stephen Moore (b. Oct. 1, 2001) is a tough, physical finisher of a fullback prospect from Huntington Beach High School in California who also could play tight end.
Moore signed in December 2019 and enrolled early to participate in spring practices.
He played under head coach Brett Brown at Huntington Beach, where he was viewed as the 41st-best tight end (H-back) in the Class of 2020 by ESPN.
Moore hauled in 78 receptions for 800 yards and seven touchdowns for the Oilers during his prep career, and he had a career-high 36 catches as a senior, while he recorded five of his touchdowns as a junior.
He also played linebacker, carding 142 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks during his career; earned first-team all-league honors as both a junior and senior, while he was a second-team pick as a sophomore; and was named Defensive Player of the Year as a junior.
Moore’s father, Aaron, played baseball at UAB, while one of his brothers, Cory, played baseball at Illinois-Chicago. Christian plans on majoring in sociology.
“For me, personally, it was not hard at all (coming this far from home to go to school). I committed on my unofficial (visit). Once I came up here, saw everything, saw what everything’s about, I knew this is where I wanted to be,” Moore told kstatesports.com.
“That’s why I committed so early. So the decision was not hard at all for me.”
He chose K-State over interest from Boise State, Nevada and Oregon State. His primary recruiter was offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham.
