CEDAR RAPIDS — Former Northern Iowa tight end Briley Moore will play as a graduate transfer at Kansas State, he announced Friday on Twitter.

Moore is from Blue Springs, Mo., a Kansas City suburb. Thought to be a possible NFL draft pick, he played in just one game this past season for UNI, incurring an injury in its opener against Iowa State.

He redshirted, which allowed him to graduate and gain a grad transfer year. He had 39 catches for 536 yards and four touchdowns in 2018 for the Panthers.

Moore picked Kansas State over Missouri and Baylor.
