After a week filled with departures, it appears Mizzou will not be finished replacing players as National Signing Day approaches. Tigers defensive lineman Josh Moore apparently is the latest Mizzou football player to announce his departure from the program.
Moore tweeted a message out on Monday morning indicating that his time at Mizzou has come to an end. It read: “Thank you Mizzou for the great memories, but I plan to transfer and follow other opportunities academically and athletically. Thank You”

Moore, who was the No. 3 rated player from the state of Kansas as a three-star recruiting in the 2015 Missouri signing class, played right away as a true freshman in 2015. Through two years on campus, Moore accumulated 11 career tackles in 16 career games. He played in just five games as a sophomore in 2016 after seeing action in 11 as a true freshman.
Moore’s story of surviving childhood cancer is sure to inspire wherever he lands next.
