A former three-star recruit out of Memphis East High School, Moore appeared in six games last season and had three tackles. At 6-foot-2, 320 pounds, his size on Ole Miss’ defensive line will be missed as the school looks to build off of last season, when the Rebelsย enjoyed their best season under coach Hugh Freeze and went 9-4 (5-3 SEC). Here’s hoping he can recover quickly and get back on the field to continue taking Ole Miss forward.

Ole Miss opens the season at home against UT-Martin on September 5.
