Redshirt Freshman Safety
6'1", 212 lbs.
McDonough, GA (Henry County)
3 stars, #54 athlete in the 2012 class
Other offers: Vanderbilt, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Mississippi State, UCF, and Virginia Tech. Moody committed to the Commodores on January 22nd following an official visit to Nasvhille but flipped his commitment to South Carolina two days before National Signing Day following an official visit to Columbia.
Moody redshirted as a true freshman in 2012.
Moody isn't listed on the depth chart for the season opener against North Carolina, and is likely to only contribute in a special teams capacity in 2013, barring a series of injuries to the safeties currently populating the depth chart for South Carolina.
For whatever reason, when you do a Google search for any given Gamecock player, his South Carolina profile is the almost always the first thing that turns up, regardless of how common his name is. But when you search for "Chris Moody", he doesn't even turn up on the first page, and this DJ is the first hit.
Possible Todd Ellis play-by-play call:
"Tajh Boyd out of the gun, throws downfield - IT'S PICKED OFF! Chris Moody has it, and he WILL. NOT. BE. CAUGHT. A 46-yard interception return for a touchdown for Chris Moody. After that play, it's going to be much more difficult for Tajh Boyd to get a loan because Moody just downgraded his credit rating to B1."
