WIDE RECEIVER’S CAREER AT SOUTH CAROLINA IS OVER

University of South Carolina wide receiver D.L. Moore will not play in the 2013 Outback Bowl due to an unspecified violation of team rules – ending his career as a Gamecock.  Sources close to the program tell FITS Moore failed a drug test.

The 6-foot-5, 198-pound senior wideout from Bowling Green, Kentucky caught eight passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns this season.  Almost half of that yardage came on one play – a 62-yard reception against the Georgia Bulldogs.

Take a look …

In four years at USC, Moore caught 40 passes for 454 yards and six touchdowns – however he dropped numerous passes as well.  Moore has the size and speed to play at the next level – although it remains to be seen whether he has the hands.

Whatever happens, we wish him the best …

Head coach Steve Spurrier’s tenth-ranked Gamecocks (10-2, 6-2 SEC) take on No. 18 Michigan (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) in the Outback Bowl on January 1 in Tampa, Florida.  South Carolina is an early five-point favorite over the Wolverines.
