UT spring game

University of Texas receiver Joshua Moore (14) warms up with offensive drills before Saturday’s Orange versus White spring scrimmage at Darrell K Royal –

Texas Memorial Stadium.

AUSTIN – Texas receiver Josh Moore has a court date scheduled for Aug. 22.

Moore, a Yoakum graduate, was arrested earlier this month on a charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon, according to a report in the Austin American-Statesman that cited court documents.

Austin police records show Moore was arrested Aug. 1.

Austin attorney Mark Sampson, who is representing Moore, refused to comment to the newspaper.

Moore has been practicing with the Longhorns and Texas coach Tom Herman told the newspaper he is aware of the situation.

“We have talked with him and his family and are handling this internally at this time, but will continue to monitor the legal process,” Herman said. “We will determine any further action upon the completion of that process.”

Moore played in six games last season and caught seven passes for 53 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown reception against Southern Cal before being injured.

Moore played wide receiver, quarterback, defensive back and returned kicks during his senior season at Yoakum.

He had 1,053 all-purpose yards, and returned three kicks and one interception for a touchdown for the Bulldogs, who advanced to the Class 3A, Division I semifinals and finished with a 13-2 record.
