As the Nebraska football team looks for more help in the defensive backfield for the 2019 season, it's possible one talented player could have just fallen into the team's lap. Jordan Moore was a 4-star prospect out of Yoakum, Texas that committed to Texas A&M out of high school. Now, after just one season with the Aggies, he's looking for a new home. The defensive back announced on his Twitter account he will be transferring because he needs to go where his "heart leads him."

Nebraska football could get back in on Moore

There isn't a straight line to the current Husker staff and Jordan Moore. He and his brother Joshua were both recruited by Mike Riley and his staff.

Joshua Moore once appeared to be a lock to be a Cornhusker but ended up a Longhorn after it was apparent Riley was going to be fired. That means Scott Frost and company wouldn't have a particularly easy time recruiting him, but he is at least familiar with the program and what Nebraska has to offer.

This staff has also done a very good job of going after other teams' players of late. They were able to reel in Wandale Robinson after Kentucky had their hooks in him. The sales pitch this group is making is resonating with talented players despite the fact that they finished just 4-8 in 2018. The question is going to be whether or not they can get their foot in the door before some of the other schools that were in on him the first time around can get in on Jordan Moore again.

Jordan Moore would be a freshman next year

The most interesting development when it comes to Texas A&M and its now former defensive back is that it's clear they planned to have Moore back and still as a freshman. It appears the defensive back only played in four games specifically so he wouldn't lose any eligibility.

It doesn't appear that the team's coaching staff made it clear what their plans were for the player, or he didn't like what those plans were. He played in four games for the Aggies, though most of his action was on special teams. Perhaps he didn't feel like he played enough on the defensive side of the ball and wanted to go somewhere where he felt he would be able to roam the defensive backfield more in the near future.

The Nebraska football team certainly has some openings in that regard. After what has been thought of as a very successful early signing period, the Huskers are clearly looking at their own defensive backfield. Tavian Mayo is one name still getting mentioned as a big target for the Cornhuskers moving towards February. The same can be said for Noa Pola-Gates. Jordan Moore wasn't a name on the Cornhuskers' radar earlier this month, but perhaps they can get a late Christmas present with his transfer.
