Third-year reserves Chet Moss and Leroy Scott were dismissed from the football program for violating team rules, head coach Charlie Strong said on Sunday.
Moss was rated the 16th-best inside linebacker recruit by ESPN in 2011. He appeared in four games on defense and special teams his freshman season before moving to fullback prior in 2012. Starting once at fullback against Oklahoma State in 2012, Moss played in 23 consecutive games in 2012 and 2013 before missing the final three games on suspension.
Scott ranked in ESPN’s top 150 and was the sixth-highest rated corner of his 2011 class. He played in 38 games over his three-year career and was named the team’s co-special teams player of the year for 2013 season. Scott was expected to compete for significant reps this fall but will now have to look to play elsewhere.
