The high school season is well into the playoffs for Nebraska commits and targets alike. Check Land of 10 every weekend, when we highlight the top performances from the previous Friday night.
Joshua Moore has big night in Texas playoffs
These posts have made little mention of Nebraska’s 4-star wide receiver commit Joshua Moore. Was he just saving his best for later in the season?
Moore carried the ball four times during Yoakum’s (Texas) 55-8 victory over Universal City Randolph on Friday night. He scored on three of them. In all, Moore tallied 154 yards and scored on dashes of 65, 39 and 22 yards .
“Whenever coach told me we were going to start with the wildcat, I knew I had to get things going,” Moore told Marcus Gutierrez of The Victoria Advocate. “Off film, I knew that the read-option would be the best thing to do. We ran the play, executed it well, and I was able to get in the end zone for my team.
“This is my senior year, and I want to make the best of it,” Moore added. “Every single game, I try to come out and do my best to help my team win.”
Another ridiculous Micah Parsons highlight
By now, we’ve seen what Micah Parsons can do on the offensive side of the ball, although he is a 5-star defensive end. His combination of size and speed is proving too lethal for his high school counterparts to (literally) tackle. He’s developed into an athlete seemingly like no other, and he’s making his opponents pay with ridiculous highlight catch-and-runs.
Check out what he did Saturday.

Another insane run from an insane athlete. Will he be making plays in a Huskers jersey? There’s a small chance, and we’ll know for certain when he announces his commitment Dec. 20, the first day of early-signing period.
It wasn’t all roses for Parsons, though. He left the game in the third quarter with an injury, according to social media reports, and would eventually return. Parsons also had a long touchdown run called back by a holding penalty.
Jordan Whittington does it all
Jordan Whittington, a 2019 wideout and Huskers target, had a big day in all three phases of the game. The 4-star do-it-all plays receiver, cornerback and returns kicks. He showed off in all of those areas Friday night.
There was a 29-yard interception returned for a touchdown. There were the 62 total return yards during the two punts he fielded. He hauled in 4 catches for 118 yards, with 1 of those catches going for a touchdown.
Cuero's Jordan Whittington @J_Whitt3 4-118 yards,, 1 TD receiving, 29-yard interception return, 2 punt returns for 62 yards in 67-10 win over CC West Oso.

All in a day’s work for Whittington.
