The Chapin alum took reps with the first unit at Thursday’s practice and has the best “operation time” — getting the ball off — of all the kickers. Moss, who was the punter for Chapin in 2011, grayshirted last year and is eligible for a redshirt this season.
He isn’t in the receiver rotation at the moment.
“It could go either way, I could redshirt and get better or I can help the team this way,” Moss said. “We started having receiver cuts (moving players over to the scout team) and I knew I needed to find somewhere else to get on the field. I told coach I could punt and he said I should come out and try it.”
UTEP also briefly tried out quarterbacks Blaire Sullivan and Garrett Simpson there.
