Jordan Moore Moves To Wide Receiver

New, 11 comments

Yesterday during his press conference, Gary Patterson mentioned that Jordan Moore will be moving to wide receiver, his fourth position on the team. Also, doesn't he look like a total badass coming out of the smoke like that??

With the loss of LaDarius Brown and Cam White, and with Brandon Carter mysteriously absent from spring practice, Gary Patterson has made a move to add a little depth to the wide receiver position.

Jordan Moore, who gained popularity this offseason for setting, and then re-setting, TCU's record in the 60 meter hurdles with a US #3 time of 7.72 seconds.

Run so fast.

Not to mention he won the Big 12 in that event this past weekend.

Now, Moore will be making the transition to his fourth position on the gridiron. The junior from Atlanta, Georgia, started his career at safety, Moore quickly moved to linebacker before being moved to running back before TCU's 2012 bowl game against Michigan State. He spent 2013 as the No. 3 guy on the depth chart, behind B.J. Catalon and Aaron Green. Now, with Kyle Hicks, Trevorris Johnson and Shaun Nixon entering the running back picture, it was time for Moore to get to a place where he can contribute.

With his height (6'3") and speed, I have no problems with Moore being moved out wide. He'll be competing for time with Ja'Juan Story, David Porter, Ty Slanina, Josh Doctson, Deante Gray, Kolby Listenbee and Cameron Echols-Luper. This may sound like a logjam, but with all reports out of practice this week being about the high octane nature of the new offense, the Frogs are going to need serious depth at that position.
