78 DAYS TO 2018 KICKOFF: Tyquilo Moore

In which BracketCat counts down the 78th day until the 2018 kickoff with a profile of defensive tackle Tyquilo Moore.

#78 Cornelius Lucas
Cornelius Lucas was the last prominent player to wear No. 78. It’s typically reserved for offensive linemen, but Jordan Willis was one exception to that rule. Maybe Tyquilo Moore will be another...

Tyquilo T. Moore (b. Oct. 21, 1997) is a promising junior college defensive tackle prospect.

Moore redshirted during the 2016 season at Butler Community College, then played the 2017 season for the Grizzlies under head coach Tim Schaffner.

He totaled 10 tackles last year, including 3.5 tackles for loss, and had a season-high two stops against both Dodge City Community College and Air Force Prep.

Moore should have three years to play three, although he is listed as a junior by K-State.

He dropped down from 340 pounds to 295 earlier this year, according to his Twitter, which should give him a head start many JUCO players don’t have when they show up overweight to fall camp.

Reading through his tweets, I like what I see of his attitude and work ethic. Don’t rule out seeing this guy on the field sometime this season, especially given our uncertainty at the defensive tackle positions behind Trey Dishon and Drew Wiley.
