Damontre Moore to Turn Pro Early

Stacy Revere

The All-American junior looks to be a sure-fire first round selection in April's NFL Draft.

Texas A&M junior defensive end Damontre Moore announced via press release on Sunday that he will forego his senior season to pursue a career in the NFL. Moore was a consensus All-SEC and All-American performer in 2012 as he piled up gaudy numbers while terrorizing quarterbacks.

Moore tallied 80 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, and 12.5 sacks on the season - leading the team in all categories. Aggie fans were hopeful that Damontre would return for the 2013 to anchor a defense on a team poised to compete for a league and national title. Moore has had a close relationship with Von Miller's parents, and the idea that he might follow in Von's footsteps in exhausting his eligibility seemed very plausible.

Coach Sumlin had nothing but praise and support for Moore's decision saying, "I couldn't be happier for Damontre as he pursues his professional dreams in the NFL. He's been a great representative of Texas A&M University as a student and a football player and I know he will continue to be an ambassador for the University in everything he does in the future."

Moore took to Twitter to thank the Aggie family:

Good Bull all around by Damontre and Coach Sumlin. All the best on what I feel will be a long, illustrious NFL career.

Now Aggie fans just need to wait on the decisions of Jake Matthews and Luke Joeckel. Some mock drafts have all three juniors in their top 10 picks. Interesting times indeed.
