Former Syracuse tight end Kendall Moore announced he is transferring to Texas for the 2017 season.

Moore has one year of eligibility remaining after spending four years at Syracuse. He received a medical hardship from the NCAA after being injured during the 2015 season. Last year he only caught one pass for 15 yards for the Orange.

As a freshman, Moore caught six passes for 65 yards and a touchdown.

Texas was in need of depth at tight end behind senior Andrew Beck, according to coach Tom Herman.

“We’ve actually talked about getting into some ‘10’ personnel and ‘20’ personnel, getting into some formations that don’t include a tight end,” Herman said via 247Sports. “I don’t feel good with what’s behind Andrew right now.”

2017 signee and tight end Reese Leitao was arrested for possession/delivery of a controlled substance with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a school, so Moore’s addition will help the Longhorns with depth at the position.

Moore was originally a three-star tackle who signed with Syracuse in 2013.
