LSU lands nation’s top JUCO DE with Travez Moore

December 20, 2017 GMT

Arden Key will likely be gone next season, but LSU will have a few options for his replacement.

The Tigers signed the nation’s No. 6 JUCO prospect in the 2018 class in Travez Moore and will likely have him compete for the vacancy left by Key’s assumed departure for the NFL after the season. He could also see time at the F-linebacker position.

At 6 foot 6, 250 pounds, he certainly has the size of Key.

Originally out of Bastrop, Moore decided to go to JUCO for the last two years before making the jump to a four-year school. He is expected to be an early enroll for the spring at LSU.

Name: Travez Moore

Position: Defensive End

Measurables: 6-foot-6, 250 pounds

JUCO: Copiah-Lincoln (Mississippi)

Hometown: Bastrop, Louisiana

Committed: February 16, 2017

247Sports Position Rank: No. 1 JUCO

247 Composite rating: 4 stars

At a Glance: Another big score for Ed Orgeron out of JUCO, Moore is another large body that could fill the role of Arden Key at Buck linebacker after his expected departure for the NFL this season.
