In December 2011, Moss left school early and declared for the draft. However, concerns about his character and work habits led to his non-selection in the draft.[4] Other concerns surfaced after Paige-Moss posted a series of tweets during the 2011 Independence Bowl that media members judged "inappropriate." [5]
