Thaddeus Moss announced on Sunday that he’s heading to Baton Rouge. Moss, the son of future Hall of Fame receiver Randy Moss, will leave the NC State program after just one year. He was the Wolfpack’s top recruit in 2016 and was hoping to make an impact from the start of his college year. The 6-foot-4, 240 pound tight end started three games for the Wolfpack in 2016 recording 6 catches for 49 yards and a touchdown.
Moss attended Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, NC where he was projected as a three star recruit and ranked 18th nationally at his position. In his senior season of high school, Moss had 54 receptions for 831 yards and 13 touchdowns. His impressive numbers helped Mallard Creek secure it’s third straight NC 4AA football championship.
This is a huge gain for the Tigers as they opted to not recruit a tight end in their 2017 recruiting class. Moss will be redshirted for the upcoming season as he sits out a year per NCAA transfer rules. He then will have three years of NCAA eligibility left. Moss signed with LSU over the weekend after their spring game and will be reunited with Tigers’ first year offensive coordinator Matt Canada who recruited Moss when he was an assistant at NC State during the 2015 season.
