Moore will stay closer to home to play his college ball but will leave the Buckeyes short a "pure" tight end in the 2015 recruiting class. Rivals' Kansas site Jayhawk Slant first reported the news. Jayhawk Slant dubbed the parting "mutual".

Moore had committed to the Buckeyes during Friday Night Lights, which came as a surprise given that many felt the Bucks had brought Kentucky commit C.J. Conrad with the hope of him earning a committable offer. Conrad left that evening after a night that probably wasn't his best and didn't speak to the media in attendance.
