OSU Football Player Leaving the Team (Multiple Reports)

5th year Senior J T Moore has apparently left the team. Moore is a TE/DE who has played sparingly during his career has chosen to enter the real world rather than stay at OSU and play Special Teams.

Patrick Maks of Eleven Warriors had this to say…

Ohio State senior tight end J.T. Moore is leaving the Ohio State football team, sources told Eleven Warriors Thursday.

Moore, a fifth-year senior, will part ways with the Buckeyes due to chronic knee injuries. He played in 31 games during his career, including all 14 games in the 2013 season.

Bucknuts had this to say…

Sources at Youngstown Boardman tell us that J.T. Moore has given up his final season of eligibility and is already in the business/investment field.

Moore would have been a fifth-year senior this fall and would have provided depth at tight end. He played defensive end earlier in his career.

This is yet another reason why true freshman Sam Hubbard – who was recruited as a linebacker – will be playing tight end this season for the Buckeyes. Ohio State has good talent at the position with senior Jeff Heuerman, fourth-year junior Nick Vannett and redshirt freshman Marcus Baugh, to go along with Hubbard. Walk-on Chris Rock, a fourth-year junior who was formerly a scholarship player at Michigan, will also provide depth at tight end.

Dave Biddle of Bucknuts added this confirmation….

J.T. Moore’s football career at Ohio State is over, a team spokesman confirmed to Bucknuts on Thursday.

The 6-foot-3, 260-pound Moore would have been a fifth-year senior this fall had he returned to the team.
Sources informed Bucknuts Thursday morning that Moore would not return to the team and had already accepted a job in the investments field, which we reported in the Boarding House.

Moore played in all 14 games for the Buckeyes in 2013 as a reserve tight end and special teams mainstay.
He started four games during the 2011 season as a defensive end.

We at MotSaG wish JT nothing but the best if these reports are true. It will have no effect on the 2015 class size as JT is on his last year of eligibility.
