He’s scheduld to graduate in May and Collin Moore has announced that he’s entering the transfer portal with a possibility of being a grad transfer.
If he does decide to leave, Moore will have two years of eligibility left and will be immediately eligible to play wherever he signs.
Moore hauled in just two catches a season ago, a 7-yard catch against Utah and a 4-yard touchdown against Illinois in the RedBox Bowl. Those two catches happen to be his only two career receptions as well.
Still, at 6’4, 250 pounds, Moore saw action in 11 games a season ago and saw his snap counts increase as the year went on.
There is no telling if this is just a case of him exploring his options or if this is something he’s looking to actively exploit to get more playing time elsewhere. New offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave is known for his ‘old-school’ style of offense with heavy usage from the tight end position so Moore’s potential departure is somewhat of a head-scratcher.
Jake Tonges and Gavin Reinwald return as the top-two options at the position but it was clear Moore was directly behind them. With the expected rotational usage of the tight ends in Musgrave’s offense, it was almost certain Moore would see more action in 2020, unless of course, incoming true freshman DJ Rogers was thought to move ahead of Moore. Then the decision comes a bit more clear, but we didn’t get spring practice to shed any light on that.
We’ll be watching this closely as he makes his official decision to leave or to stay in the coming weeks.
