Clearwater's Tyler Moore among three transfers to sign with Florida today



Former Clearwater Countryside standout Tyler Moore is among three junior college transfers to sign with the Gators today. Also signing national letters of intent were OL Trenton Brown and DL Darious Cummings. All three are scheduled to enroll in January and will be eligible to play in 2013.

"We are very excited to announce the addition of Trenton, Darious and Tyler to our football program," Florida coach Will Muschamp said. "I've said a number of times that the Southeastern Conference is a line of scrimmage league and all three of these players will help us with our depth on the line of scrimmage."

Moore, a 6-foot-5, 312-pound redshirt freshman offensive lineman joins the Gators after transferring from Nebraska. Moore was at Nebraska in the fall of 2011 before leaving and attending St. Petersburg Community College this past fall. While at Nebraska, he started the first four games of the 2011 season and played in nine games overall.

Brown, 6-foot-8, 363 pound junior, spent two years at Georgia Military College after graduating from Westover High in 2011. He was a second-team NJCAA Football All-American. At GMC this past season, Brown was part of a team that went 7-4 and averaged 188 yards rushing per game.

Cummings, a 6-foot-1, 310 pound junior played in all 10 games at East Mississippi Community College during the 2012 season, registering 26 tackles (12 unassisted) with 4.0 TFL (12 yards), 3.0 sacks, two quarterback hurries and one forced fumble. EMCC finished 8-2 and ranked 15th in the final NJCAA poll. He helped anchor a defense that allowed just 74.2 rushing yards per game.
