After leaving the Georgia Tech team for personal reasons Tuesday, wide receiver Jeremy Moore has apparently had a change of heart. Moore spoke with coach Paul Johnson Thursday and will likely be permitted to return to the team, Tech spokesman Dean Buchan confirmed.
Moore will not dress for Saturday’s game against Miami.
Moore, a redshirt junior, earned a starting job in the preseason after fighting through injuries in his first three seasons at Tech. He started Tech’s first three games with three catches for 64 yards. Johnson said Wednesday that Moore told him that he was leaving the team because of “personal issues that he needed to deal with.” Johnson also mentioned that Moore had previously contemplating leaving the team. He professed to not be frustrated by the decision’s timing.
“If somebody doesn’t have their heart in it, doesn’t want to be out there, no use trying to talk ‘em into staying,” Johnson said.
Jeff Greene and Darren Waller will start at wide receiver against the Hurricanes. They are backed up by true freshman Anthony Autry and Corey Dennis, who was moved to wide receiver from defensive back this week.
