Former Nebraska Cornhusker offensive lineman Tyler Moore will transfer to Florida, according to ESPN's Derek Tyson. Moore started at Nebraska as a freshman, but left the program this year and is currently attending St. Petersburg College in Clearwater. Moore will be eligible to play in 2013, and should be part of a young and talented Gator offensive line that will include another 2012 transfer in Max Garcia, who came to Gainesville from Maryland this past summer.

Moore chose the Gators over the Florida State Seminoles, and his father cited the work ethic of the Florida staff as factoring into Tyler's decision:

"I've never seen a staff work as hard as their staff," Brian Moore said. "From Muschamp, to the strength coach (Jeff) Dillman, to the director of player personnel Jon Haskins, there was just a different energy at Florida."
