Georgia Tech wide receiver Jeremy Moore has left the team for personal reasons, coach Paul Johnson said Wednesday.
Moore, a redshirt junior, had started the first three games of the season and had three catches for 64 yards. Moore informed Johnson of the decision Tuesday.
“He had some personal reasons, said that he’s struggled with it before,” Johnson said following Wednesday’s practice. “It’s not the first time he’s thought about it. I just wished him well.”
Moore will remain in school, Johnson said. Moore had a challenging run with the team, suffering multiple injuries and getting little playing time. With a strong spring practice and fall camp, he earned a starting spot and rotated with Darren Waller and Jeff Greene.
True freshman Anthony Autry is now behind Waller and Greene on the depth chart, although Chris Jackson will return next week after being held out for four games because of an academic matter concerning his credit hours. Also, defensive back Corey Dennis was brought over to add depth at wide receiver.
