Nebraska offensive lineman Tyler Moore, a Countryside graduate, has temporarily left the team according to Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini.
“We’ll see where that goes,” Pelini told the Lincoln Journal Star of Moore’s departure. “I’m not exactly sure if it’s going to be permanent or not permanent. He’s working through some things personally.”
Pelini also told the Lincoln Journal Star that Moore was not at practice the past few days and did not attend team meetings Friday morning.
On Saturday, Pelini said he talked Moore’s father, former Husker tight end Brian Moore.
"He said there's a bunch of things being said out on the Internet ... the blogs and whatever ... that aren't true," Pelini told the Lincoln Journal Star.
Moore, a five-star recruit, was a force for Countryside in 2009-10, helping the Cougars go 19-1 during that span and advance to the region final each of those seasons. He had more than 50 offers but committed early to Nebraska.
Moore graduated from Countryside in December 2010 and enrolled in Nebraska for the spring semester.
Last season, Moore became the first true freshman offensive lineman to start a season opener for the Cornhuskers. He also was just the fourth freshman lineman to start an opener at the school, joining redshirt freshmen Jeremiah Sirles (2010 vs. Western Kentucky), Marcel Jones (2008 vs. Western Michigan) and Richie Incognito (2002 vs. Arizona State).
In addition, Moore was just the 10th freshman lineman to appear in a game for Nebraska since freshmen regained eligibility in 1973.
He started the first four games last season at right tackle before Marcel Jones took over most of the snaps during Big-10 play. Moore was expected to start at left tackle this season.
