 Elijah Moore, Mississippi, Player News

  11/21/20 - WR Elijah MooreJr/2022, Mississippi, 5-09, 185 (DS#5 WR) + More +

  Corral and Moore have put together back-to-back games so impressive, with stats so eye-popping, that hyperbole doesn't even work anymore. Corral has completed 59 of his last 66 pass attempts, good for an 89.4% completion percentage. He has 925 yards and 10 touchdowns with no interceptions in that span. Phrased another way, Corral has three more touchdowns than incompletions in the last two games. Moore has been Corral's favorite target. The junior has 27 catches for 463 yards and five touchdowns in that same time span. That includes Saturday night, when he caught 13 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns. But the 91-yard score was much more impressive than numbers on a stat sheet. South Carolina cornerback Jaycee Horn is one of the best in the country. He'd been lined up against Moore all day. Ole Miss was so concerned about Horn's potential to lock down Moore, the game plan actually called for Moore to line up out of position at running back just to confuse defenses - where Moore ran six times and gained 45 yards moonlighting as a running back. - The Clarion Ledger

  The current Ole Miss receiver most likely to follow after Metcalf and Brown is junior Elijah Moore. A native Floridian rather than Mississippian, Moore has put up video game numbers for Ole Miss this season. Moore leads all Power 5 receivers in receptions (61), receiving yards (829), catches per game (10.1) and yards per game (138.2). He's on pace to break Brown's Ole Miss single-season receiving records in a pandemic-shortened season and could break the NCAA record for catches per game. Moore was a freshman when Metcalf and Brown were juniors. He's taking the lessons he learned from them and translating those lessons to the receivers younger than him. "I just feel like it's the competitive aspect whenever you get on the field," Moore said. "Even after practice with these guys, we're really competing every day. Day-in and day-out it's a competition. Competing against the best is going to bring out the best in you."

Recruiting rankings seem to indicate Metcalf and Brown weren't outliers. Six of the 11 highest rated Mississippi high school players in the 247Sports composite rankings for the Class of 2021 are receivers. Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin says he doesn't use Brown and Metcalf directly as recruiting tools. He likes to sell recruits on players he coached, not players from previous regimes at his new school. That said, he said he knows having Brown and Metcalf as examples of in-state recruits turning Ole Miss tenures into ascendant NFL careers will help attract the best prospects Mississippi has to offer. "Maybe there's a little bit more when you're recruiting an in-state player," Kiffin said. "Here's a great player that stayed home. It just gives them an example of 'Hey, you don't have to go to Georgia or Alabama or LSU. You can stay right here.' It's been done before." - The Clarion Ledger

  Wide receiver Elijah Moore didn't have Ole Miss records on his mind. He wanted to set Lane Kiffin records. Moore went into halftime of Ole Miss' 54-21 win over Vanderbilt with 12 catches for 223 yards and three touchdowns. That's not a misprint. The junior outgained Vanderbilt by 29 yards on his own in the first two quarters. So coming out of halftime, Moore knew he was poised to slice through the school record books. But his sights were less on Ole Miss' history, and more on the award-winning receivers in his head coach's past. "He asked me at the start of the third quarter 'What's the most you've ever had from a wide receiver?" Kiffin said. "I think he wanted to break the record I'd been around. I told him I think [former USC receiver] Marqise Lee against Arizona had 340 in a game we actually lost. He thought he was really good. He had 220 at the half so he had a long ways to go."

Moore didn't get to Lee's 345-yard mark to break the Kiffin record. But he broke or matched a slew of Ole Miss records. He caught 14 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns. The performance broke the Ole Miss single-game record for receiving yards and matched the school records for receiving touchdowns and receptions. And he did all that despite making his last catch with more than 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter. "Records are meant to be broken," Moore said. "But the overall goal is just to win. So as long as we got that through, that's the most important thing." - The Clarion Ledger

  It was a record Saturday for Mississippi quarterback Matt Corral and wide receiver Elijah Moore. Corral threw for 412 yards and six touchdowns, Moore had 14 catches for 238 yards and the Rebels beat Vanderbilt 54-21 to snap a three-game losing streak. It was the second consecutive win for Ole Miss (2-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) over Vanderbilt (0-4, 0-4). The Rebels won 31-6 last season. Vanderbilt had not played since Oct. 10 and had several players dealing with COVID-19. Corral completed 19 consecutive passes, breaking Eli Manning's program record of 18 straight against Murray State in his debut his sophomore season. Corral's six touchdown passes also tied Manning's record for touchdown passes in a game set against Arkansas in 2001. Corral set the school record for touchdown passes in regulation since five of Manning's passes came in overtime. - Mississippi/AP College Football

  Rebels quarterback Matt Corral hit receiver Elijah Moore with a 3-yard touchdown pass in overtime and Luke Logan's extra point pushed Mississippi past Kentucky 42-41 on Saturday night. Running back Chris Rodriguez's 1-yard run for Kentucky with 2:04 remaining eventually forced OT, and quarterback Terry Wilson's 10-yard rushing touchdown gave the Wildcats the initial lead. But Matt Ruffolo missed the extra point, opening the door for the Rebels (1-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) to rally again for the win. Five-yard runs by Corral and John Rhys Plumlee were followed by a defensive pass interference penalty on Kentucky defensive back Kelvin Joseph in the end zone.

Corral hit Moore two plays later, and Logan easily converted the PAT to give Lane Kiffin his first win with the Rebels and spark a wild celebration. The Rebels trailed 28-14 early in the third quarter before Corral, who threw four touchdowns, tossed scoring passes of 24 and 16 yards to Jonathan Mingo to tie the game early in the fourth quarter. The drives covered 75 and 54 yards and just 2:54 combined. After taking over on downs, Ole Miss used just 47 seconds to go 53 yards and go ahead on Snoop Conner's 1-yard touchdown run with 8:23 remaining. Corral passed for 320 yards and four touchdowns, including two to Jonathan Mingo and another to Kenny Yeboah. Conner rushed for a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, and Jerrion Ealy scored the game's first score. - Mississippi/AP College Football

  You might remember the 5-foot-9, 185-pound Moore from last year's Egg Bowl. He hopes you don't. Against archrival Mississippi State, Moore caught a touchdown pass with four seconds left to pull the Rebels to within 21-20 of MSU. Problem was Moore celebrated by imitating a Bulldog urinating, a jab at the opposing Bulldogs. The ensuing unsportsmanlike conduct penalty pushed the extra point back 15 yards for Luke Logan, whose kick sailed wide right. MSU won 21-20. "Elijah is a fine young man who lost control of his emotions in the moment," said Ole Miss in a statement the next day. Moore also apologized. - Herald Leader

  Lane Kiffin wants Elijah Moore to break records. "I thought Elijah was really special from looking at film last year and getting to work with him," Kiffin said. "When I first met him I told him 'Hey, you've got to work harder than anyone in the country because you're going to shatter the school record for most catches in a year." Moore is well on his way to set the records Kiffin wants him to. The junior receiver caught 10 passes for 227 yards in Ole Miss' 51-35 loss against No. 6 Florida Saturday. He finished six yards shy of tying A.J. Brown's record for most receiving yards in a single game in Ole Miss history and had another huge play taken off the board too. He caught a slip pass and ran 22 yards after the catch for a touchdown but that play was taken off the board because of a holding penalty.

Kiffin's confidence in Moore's ability to shatter records relates to what he was able to do with Cooper and others. Kiffin coached Cooper to Alabama's single-season receptions and receiving yards records and did the same for pass-catcher Marqise Lee at USC. "As you saw today, had we had a full 12 games I think he would've done that," Kiffin said of Moore. "It'll be a lot harder obviously with 10 conference games and no non-conference games." When asked about Kiffin's expectations on him, Moore said he doesn't care about individual records. His team lost. That's all that matters. No matter how well the offense played, that wasn't good enough. But that's not necessarily true. This performance was a stark departure from the way Ole Miss' offense operated in 2019. Last year's Rebels were as run-first as any team in the SEC. They finished with the No. 9 rushing offense in the country and the No. 102 passing offense. They only passed for more than 250 yards as a team in one game, and that came in a losing effort. - The Clarion Ledger

  Matt Corral looked good passing all game, especially when targeting wide receiver Elijah Moore. Moore caught 10 passes for 227 yards on 12 targets and had a touchdown taken off the board because of a holding penalty. Moore finished six yards short of setting the Ole Miss record for receiving yards in a game. Senior receiver Dontario Drummond also had a big day, catching two touchdowns and throwing for a 45-yard completion on a gadget play in the first quarter. Corral finished with 395 passing yards and three touchdowns. If you adjust for sacks, he ran for 81 yards on nine scrambles.

Moore was the go-to target in Ole Miss' offense in 2019. Among returning SEC receivers, only Alabama's DeVonta Smith caught more first downs last year than Moore's 37. Moore is hardly a deep threat. Only eight of his 67 catches last season went for 25 or more yards. But he thrives in small spaces and is an excellent route runner. Ole Miss used Moore as an extension of the running game last year with 48 of his catches and 617 of his yards coming on first and second down. - The Clarion Ledger

  Junior receiver Elijah Moore spoke to the media on Friday for the first time since his excessive celebration penalty at the end of the Egg Bowl effectively cost Ole Miss a chance to tie or win the game. Based on the way he talked about the incident, Moore seems like he's moved past the criticism and attention he drew. "I just tried to flip the page," Moore said. "I've got a new coach. That's a blessing. I'm just trying to be positive and leave the past in the past and be a better player overall. Just learn from my lessons. It's been motivating. Being a young man, you know everyone makes mistakes. I don't really use them as losses. I take them as a lesson. I learn from my lessons."

Moore led Ole Miss with 67 catches for 850 yards and six touchdowns a season ago. Among returning SEC players who have not opted out of the 2020 season, only Alabama's DeVonta Smith and Texas A&M's Jhamon Ausbon had more receiving yards last season. First-year Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin has singled Moore out as one of the standouts in the receiver room, saying he's consistently made big plays in the team's scrimmages. Given that he had more catches and receiving yards last year than all of Ole Miss' other returning wide receivers combined, it stands to reason that he'll have to be the main target in this Ole Miss offense. - The Clarion Ledger
