After spending the 2012 season wreaking havoc in SEC backfields, Damontre Moore will officially attempt to do the same at the next level.
In a video released by the university, the defensive lineman confirmed that he will leave the Aggies a year early and make himself available for the April NFL draft.
“I just talked it over with my family and the coaching staff, and we just rated out the pros and cons, and the pros weighed out the cons,” Moore said in the video. “It was a very tough decision, it came down to the last minute. It was split because I love Aggieland and because I love the time I spent here.”
The full video can be seen below:
In 2012, Moore was a consensus All-American following a season that currently has the true junior fifth in the country in sacks per game (1.04) and tied for eighth in tackles for loss per game (1.67). Moore’s draft stock is viewed as anywhere between early in the first round to early in the second.
