    Moore has brought plenty of excitement to the Razorbacks program since arriving on campus early for the 2020 spring. At just 17, Moore’s 16-game performance in the shortened Covid year was enough to prove he belonged, with a .317/.403/.444 slash line. He followed that with a remarkable 2021 campaign, as the switch-hitter displayed power from both sides you wouldn’t expect to see in a 5-foot-9 170-pound middle infielder. He belted 16 home runs to go with his .283 average to catapult himself up draft boards, earning plenty of first round chatter heading into 2022. However, Moore’s numbers have taken a step back this spring. He had a .232/.367/.419 slash line with just six home runs heading into NCAA Tournament play. There have been some bright spots. Moore laced 16 doubles and was just one walk behind the team lead with 34 before regional play began. The defense has remained strong, as he committed just two errors in his first 135 attempts. With Arkansas in the super regionals, Moore still has time to contribute where it matters most. The son of Royals president Dayton Moore, Robert does possess a prospect profile that should translate into professional baseball. Known for his ultra aggressive swings, it will be interesting to see if Moore transitions to more of a bat-to-ball approach, taking what the pitcher gives him and using all fields. With the wood bat, expect to see a line drive hitter with enough strength to leave the yard on occasion. Moore brings the gamer mentality with him, and with his strong defensive play, the ability is there to hold down second base as he works his way up the ladder. An above-average runner, Moore should be a threat on the basepaths at the next level. The overall body of work Moore has on his resume is impressive. Though the first round chatter may have declined, he can still be a solid pick somewhere in the first three rounds in July.
