LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech starting wide receiver Darrin Moore was arrested for DWI on April 13 of this year. According to Associate Athletic Director Blayne Beal he has been suspended indefinitely. Moore was arrested in the 2300 Block of Buddy Holly Ave around 1:15 a.m., according to police.

Moore is going into his senior year at Texas Tech after a breakout year in 2011 where he set career highs in receptions in a game (12 vs Texas State), yards in a game (221 vs Texas State), and touchdowns in a game (3 vs New Mexico). However, Moore was plagued with knee and ankle injuries initially suffered during a win versus Nevada.

Moore was expected to lead the wide receivers group into the 2012 season and a favorite target for senior quarterback Seth Doege, after making the 2011 Biletnikoff Award Watch List (awarded every year to the nation's top receiver in college football).

No comment was given regarding Moore's playing status for the 2012 season.
