Florida lineman, former 4-star recruit, reportedly enters transfer portal
T.J. Moore, a Florida offensive lineman who saw limited action the last 3 seasons, has reportedly entered the transfer portal.
Last season, Moore appeared in 4 games after he played in 13 games as a backup lineman in 2019. He appeared in 2 games in 2018 after he redshirted in 2017. Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported the news and noted that the former 4-star recruit was part of Florida’s 2017 signing class. He was the No. 5 player in the state of North Carolina, out of Charlotte, and the No. 26 offensive tackle in the Class of 2017.
The offensive line has been a question for Florida, and it appears Moore will not be in the mix going forward. The Gators have shuffled some players following the departure of left tackle Stone Forsythe.
“The guys we’re most comfortable with on the offensive line are definitely Richard Gouraige and Ethan White on the left side of the line, left tackle, left guard,” coach Dan Mullen said earlier this month, per 247Sports. “Those guys playing those spots right now, feel very comfortable with those two on that left side.”
It appears the Gators will enter fall camp with a balance of the lineup rounded out by Stewart Reese at center, Joshua Braun at right guard and Jean Delance at right tackle.
