Defensive tackle T.D. Moton signed with Texas A&M almost a year and a half ago, but the next step in his football career has been delayed for more than a year due to academic eligibility questions.
Well, Tuesday marked a fantastic milestone for the 6-foot-2, 310-pound product of Woodlawn High School (Shreveport, La.). That’s because Texas A&M has accepted Moton, according to Taylor Hamm of GigEm247.
Hamm reports that the Aggies finally heard back from the ACT offices this week regarding Moton’s academic status, and its official determination of that the defender is NCAA eligible was forwarded along to the SEC, which finally ended the long saga as of Tuesday.
Moton is listed as a 3-star recruit who was ranked as the nation’s No. 28 defensive tackle in the Class of 2015.
