Report: Wide Receiver Koy Moore has entered the transfer portal

·1 min read

LSU has lost a player to the transfer portal.

Koy Moore, a four-star prospect out of Metairie, Louisiana, has entered the transfer portal, per 247Sports. Moore had five receptions for 71 yards this season. He hasn’t recorded a catch since the Central Michigan game back in September. Last season, he had 22 receptions for 177 yards. Moore never reached paydirt in his 17 games with the Tigers.

Moore was the No. 50 wide receiver in the 2020 recruiting cycle, and the No. 11 overall prospect in the state of Louisiana. He held offers from seven other SEC schools (Florida, Auburn, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Kentucky).

When asked about the report of Koy Moore entering the transfer portal, head coach Ed Orgeron couldn’t confirm the report. The head coach hadn’t spoken with Moore prior to the Monday press conference.

The potential loss of Moore could be big given the loss of Kayshon Boutte for the season. The Tigers do have depth at the position with a group of freshman receivers that includes Jack Bech, Deion Smith, Brian Thomas Jr, among others.

While the team has depth, there have been countless injuries and the depth could be tested at any point in time. It isn’t a surprise to hear of players heading to the transfer portal after the news broke with the future of the head football coach.
