The Oklahoma State Cowboys received a talented transfer from Minnesota in Tyler Moore. After starting as a freshman at center while with the Gophers, Moore continued to hold down a spot on the offensive line. However, back in May, Moore underwent surgery to correct a reoccurring pain issue that kept the junior off the field. Expected to have two seasons of eligibility remaining with O-State, the script has changed.
On Monday, Moore announced that he would be stepping away from the field due to ongoing issues with pain following the surgery. The former player plans to continue his education at Oklahoma State.
Moving forward, Moore was expected to compete for the starting job in 2018. With Brad Lundblade exhausting his eligibility, Moore was nearly a shoo-in. Now the responsibility likely falls to redshirt sophomore Johnny Wilson in the coming years. Regardless, we wish Moore the best in his pursuit of a college degree as well as in any future endeavors.
