Moon was born pigeon-toed and bowlegged. He wore braces on his legs to straighten them out, which caused a back fracture that eventually healed.
The Hoover, Alabama, native eventually became a first-team all-state pick before signing with Florida ahead of the 2016 season.
Moon played in the first two games that fall (three tackles) before suffering a season-ending injury. Moon started five of 10 games played at linebacker the next season (23 tackles, one for loss) and four of 13 contests in 2018 (31 stops, 1.5 sacks).
Moon moved to defensive end as a junior in 2019, starting eight of nine games played (31 tackles, 6.5 for loss with three sacks) but missed the end of the season with a foot injury.
He started the first four games of 2020 (14 tackles, 1.5 for loss) but another foot injury ended his year prematurely.
Moon returned to start nine of 10 appearances in 2021 (49 tackles, 3.5 for loss with two tackles) but again missed the end of the year with an injury. Moon’s uncle, Darius Gilbert, played linebacker at Alabama.
A year ago, Moon was an edge defender with below-average strength at the point of attack and an unimpressive skill set as a rusher.
However, his move to linebacker has given his draft hopes new life. He’s long, athletic, fast, and showed a decent talent for getting to the football despite a lack of experience off the ball.
The instincts and feel for leveraging run lanes are very much a work in progress but his length, athleticism, and range as a tackler should create interest from teams looking to draft the traits and develop the linebacker.
There are no specifics on whether or not he is a father. He might or might not be a father. There aren’t any rumors concerning his kids either.
