Former Nebraska offensive lineman Tyler Moore has a new home: Florida.

Derek Tyson of ESPN's GatorNation reports that Moore has told Gators coach Will Muschamp of his intent to transfer to Florida. Moore left Nebraska in August for personal reasons, and while coach Bo Pelini didn't close the door on a return, it quickly became unlikely.

Moore's father told Tyson that his son also considered Florida State but settled on Florida, where they were impressed by Muschamp and his staff's energy.

Moore, a native of Clearwater, Fla., started four games at right tackle for Nebraska in 2011, becoming just the first Huskers freshman offensive lineman to start a season opener and just the 10th true freshman offensive lineman in team history to start a game. He appeared in nine games for Nebraska and was pegged as a likely starter at left tackle entering this season.
