OSU football: Receiver C.J. Moore to enter transfer portal

STILLWATER — Tulsa Union product C.J. Moore is the fourth Oklahoma State receiver to enter the NCAA transfer portal this month.

Moore, who was a redshirt freshman in the fall, announced his intentions on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

“I am appreciative of Oklahoma State and the football program, but God has a different plan for me,” Moore wrote.

The 6-foot-5, 175-pound receiver caught a touchdown pass in each of OSU’s first two games to start the season, but was used less and less as the year went on.

Moore ultimately played in only five games, catching four passes for 81 yards.

A highly recruited prospect with offers from the likes of Ohio State and Georgia, Moore becomes the second four-star receiver recruit to enter the portal in the last week, along with LC Greenwood.

Patrick McKaufman and Tyrell Alexander have also announced their intentions to transfer, leaving OSU with 10 scholarship receivers for the fall.
