There have been rumors that Notre Dame, where he had an outstanding visit to during the season was going to be his destination, but at least for now that is not true.
According to Moore's father, his son is considering Notre Dame, LSU and Colorado. Moore has only taken official visits to USC and Notre Dame.
Moore's decommitment from the Trojans is yet another twist in the U.S. Army All-American's recruitment.
Moore, who is the No. 6 ranked safety prospect in the Class of 2009, originally committed to UCLA back in April because of the Bruins coaching staff and its proximity to home.
Two months later following a outstanding performance at the USC Rising Stars Camp where he was offered by the Trojans, Moore had a change of heart and committed to USC.
"I just had to follow my hear and my heart was pointing me to USC," Moore said at the time. "It was a tough decision because UCLA is a great school and a great place."
Moore is ranked No. 98 in the Rivals100.
