recruit757 Fab 30: Ahshawn Moore – Indian River High School #9
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
There are those who might look at our #9 athlete and question how he ranks so high when he didn’t play high school football in 2016 or 2017. Despite his absence, his rank is evidence of his skill. He demonstrates the skill that merits the ranking.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #9 senior prospect region-wide is Indian River linebacker Ahshawn Moore.

Moore has had his struggles with grades and his home life. That much has been acknowledged by Indian River head coach Glenwood Ferebee and even Moore himself. College coaches have stuck with Ahshawn, seeing his talent and believing that he can turn his circumstances around. Coach Ferebee confirmed for us over the summer that the turnaround is indeed happening. Moore is in position to start for the Braves this fall.
Ahshawn holds offers from several schools, including Virginia Tech, Marshall, Auburn, Hampton and Tennessee.
He kept himself in shape and motivated to play football during his hiatus. That illustrates his determination.
“(My teammates) look up to me. I’m a leader. Everything that I do, they do. If I come out with a tempo, they’re behind me. Everything follows behind me,” he said to recruit757 video correspondent Antowyne Shaw in July. “Thanks to Coach Brandon Trusty and Coach Dane working me out and keeping me in shape.”
