Yet another Texas Longhorns player is in the NCAA transfer portal as news broke on Thursday that fourth-year offensive tackle Reese Moore may depart from the program.
A 6’7, 304-pounder who signed with Texas as a member of the 2018 recruiting class, Moore was a developmental prospect ranked as the No. 300 player nationally and the No. 20 offensive tackle, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
A knee injury first sustained in high school helped derail Moore’s career with the Longhorns — he redshirted in 2018, then aggravated the knee injury during preseason camp in 2019 and underwent surgery on it a second time prior to the 2020 season.
Those injuries made it difficult for Moore to compete for the starting job at left tackle when Sam Cosmi declared for the 2021 NFL Draft and opted out of the final two games. Moore did make an appearance late in the Alamo Bowl victory over Colorado, but freshman Andrej Karic took advantage of his opportunity and looks like the future left tackle for the Longhorns.
Moore has three years of eligibility remaining.
