“As far as his spirit right now, he’s in a good place – as good as he can be,” Partridge said. “It’s the same with the team. They’re disappointed for him and sad for him. But he’s in about as good of an emotional state as you can expect.”
Moise (6-foot-2, 205 lbs.), who will seek a sixth year of eligibility, was running with the second team offense and was listed as the No. 2 “W” receiver behind starter Kalib Woods.
“I don’t know if we’ll be able to get him a sixth year, but we’ll go down that path,” Partridge said. “It’s really up to the powers beyond us, but we’re going do everything we can.”
In four years with the program, Moise compiled 20 receptions for 193 yards and two touchdowns.
