South Carolina LB Skai Moore to return for senior season

Wednesday December 2nd, 2015

South Carolina junior linebacker Skai Moore has announced his decision to return for his senior season.

After talking with my family about this big decision I feel it's only right to go back to school and finish what I started!” Moore wrote on Instagram. “I can't wait to be in front of the best fans in the nation next year!”

Moore was ranked No. 7 on’s list of eligible inside linebackers.

Moore led the Gamecock defense for three-straight seasons, starting at middle linebacker in 37 games. He led the team in tackles this season, racking up 110, including 6.5 for loss. He also intercepted four passes and forced three fumbles in 2015.

His 110 tackles was the first time a South Carolina player has eclipsed the 100-tackle mark since Jasper Brinkley made 107 tackles in 2006.
