Nebraska defensive end Avery Moss won't be playing for the Cornhuskers in 2014 as he has been banned from the university's campus.
Moss was convicted of public indecency for exposing himself in a residence-hall convenience store, and he originally was banned from parts of the campus, including residence halls. But he returned to a residence hall in December, which led to the campus-wide ban.
Moss says that he only returned to the halls of residence because he thought he the ban was over and not for any other reasons.
“It was a procedural screw-up,” Moss said. “It had nothing to do with me acting out again…they wanted me to do something and I misinterpreted it. I thought I was allowed to go back into the residence halls after a academic year – that’s what it seemed like at first – and afterward it was presumed to be whenever Dr. Hecker (UNL Dean of Students) said so.”
As a redshirt freshman, Moss finished with 36 tackles, eight tackles for loss and 4 ½ sacks in 2013. He also had an interception return for a touchdown in NU’s 27-24 win over Northwestern.
Moss said he’s “been browsing around at a bunch of schools” but is still considering staying at Nebraska to finish his career and graduate, after hopefully winning an appeal in December of 2014.
