Aliquippa Star Larry Moon III Receives Offer from Notre Dame



There’s a history of Notre Dame recruiting the WPIAL hard, last landing former Central Catholic defensive tackle Donovan Hinish, and the Fighting Irish are once again trying to land a local star.

Larry Moon III — a 5-foot-11, 180-pound defensive back from Aliquippa in Aliquippa, Pa. — picked up his latest offer from Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman and the Fighting Irish, just the latest in a rapidly growing list of offers.

He now holds offers from Akron, Kansas, Kentucky, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Penn State, Pitt, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCF, UNLV, USC, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Moon, who transferred to Central Catholic for his freshman season before moving back to Aliquippa this offseason, was a standout defender as a true freshman at CC.

He racked up 32 tackles (24 solo), four tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble.

Moon has been in the spotlight already this summer, competing at the Under Armour Next camp series in New Jersey last month and bringing home the defensive back MVP. Not only did Moon III come away with the defensive back honors, but he was the youngest player in attendance to get an award.

“It was truly an honor and I’m glad the coaches recognized my abilities,” Moon III told Pittsburgh Sports Now following his camp appearance. “I trusted in my technique and the coaching my coaches were giving to me and was the best DB at the camp,” Moon said.

While the class of 2027 is still in its collective recruiting infancy, it’s clear that Moon is going to be one of the most sought-after recruits in not just the WPIAL but all of the class.
