Koy Moore is a free agent and the Nebraska football team could be looking to take advantage. The wide receiver out of Louisiana announced on Sunday night that he was decommitting from USC and completely opening up his recruiting. The 4-star 2020 prospect is one that the Nebraska football team would almost surely love to land and it might be a situation where there's no time like the present to try and snap up a kid who is smarting a bit.

Nebraska football about to join the fray?

The degree of difficulty here is that the Huskers had not been talking much at all to Moore before he decided he no longer wanted to be headed to USC.
