2024 Sunnyslope (AZ) High quarterback Luke Moga has had a busy offseason.
Since December, Moga has picked up more than 10 offers, including Arizona, Arizona State and NC State. Syracuse was one of the most recent schools to offer the signal caller, who is rated a three-star prospect and the 103rd quarterback in his class by 247 Sports.
“It felt great to get that offer,” Moga said in an interview with The Juice Online. “I think Syracuse is a great school and program historically. To be able to play in that Dome in New York is great.”

Moga’s primary recruiter is newly elevated Orange offensive coordinator Jason Beck. Beck was previously the quarterbacks coach at Syracuse and has had a long history of molding quarterbacks.
Aside from Garrett Shrader, who finished fourth in the ACC in passing efficiency, Beck has also guided Bryce Perkins, Brennan Armstrong and Taysom Hill.
“I love how coach Beck not only loves me as a QB, but as a person and character,” Moga said. “My parents emphasized that when I was growing up, so it’s great to see all these coaches respect that.”
Beck will likely be competing against many other high-majors in the near future.
“ACC is big time football for sure,” Moga said. “Pac 12 and Big 12 schools are starting to come at me hard, along with a few ACC schools. SEC is creeping in.”
The interest level among the programs make sense.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound dual-threat quarterback threw for 2,258 yards and 26 touchdowns through the air and 539 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.
“I’m an elite thrower of the football who can extend plays not only with my legs, but with my various arm angles as well,” Moga said. “I’m a big time explosive quarterback and I hope to show that for years to come.”
While Moga doesn’t have a timeline yet for a decision, he does know the criteria he’s looking for in a school.
“I’m looking for a place where I can go in and compete right away, and learn and develop,” Moga said. “A place where I can succeed and help me get to my dream of playing in the NFL.”
