Apparently, it only took one year for Thaddeus Moss to realize that NC State wasn’t the right place for him. Now, he’s decided to leave the school he played his prep football for greener pastures.
Moss, the son of legendary NFL receiver Randy Moss, announced on Thursday afternoon that he’ll be transferring from the Wolfpack after the spring semester. He only earned limited time on the field as a freshman in 2016, starting three games and finishing with 6 catches, 49 yards and a TD.
His decision opens the possibility of him finishing out his college career in the SEC. When he chose to go to NC State, his other two finalists were Texas A&M and Georgia. The Aggies were one of only three schools he took an official visit to.

The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Moss, a 3-star TE out of Mallard High School in Charlotte, N.C., was also offered by Alabama, Florida, South Carolina and Vanderbilt during the recruiting process.
Despite his limited starts with the Wolfpack last season, Moss did earn the distinction of being one of only three true freshman to start for Dave Doeren last season.
