Gophers center Tyler Moore announced Monday on Twitter that he plans to transfer to another school. Moore started as a true freshman in 2015 and had made 20 consecutive starts before missing the Holiday Bowl because of a back injury.
Moore thanked former Gophers coach Jerry Kill for "taking a chance in me and believing in what I stand for."
"I will forever bleed maroon and gold," Moore continued, "but it is time for me to move into greener pastures."
The Gophers also had three players decommit -- wide receiver Javan Hawes (Tyrone, Ga.), running back Jakyle Holmes (Ponchatoula, La.) and linebacker Claudin Cherelus (Naples, Fla.). All had committed under former coach Tracy Claeys. They joined offensive lineman Jimmie Terry (Tyler, Texas), who decommitted on Sunday.
