There has been another first in the Will Muschamp era at South Carolina.
Defensive back Chris Moody will leave the football program, he announced via Twitter on Tuesday. Moody is the first contributor from the 2015 team to voluntarily leave the program but not for the NFL (like star wideout Pharoh Cooper).
“Forever grateful for the opportunity,” Moody said. “Best fans ever. Thanks South Carolina!”
Moody, a redshirt junior who is set to graduate from South Carolina in May, is expected to transfer and play out his final year of eligibility at another school, according to GamecockCentral.com’s Chris Clark.
The 6-foot-1, 215-pound defensive back from Henry County High School (McDonough, Ga.) was a contributor on special teams and at safety for the Gamecocks this past season.
Moody saw action in all 12 games in 2015, registering four total tackles, including a half-tackle for loss, and one pass breakup.
In 37 career games at South Carolina, Moody started seven games and recorded 48 tackles.
