Sydney Moss might be headed back to Kentucky. The 2012 Miss Basketball from Boone County High School says it's "most likely" she will transfer from the University of Florida to Thomas More College.

Moss, the daughter of NFL star Randy Moss, was one of three players to announce last month they were leaving the Florida program. Gators Coach Amanda Butler refused to grant Moss a release to transfer to another BCS program, according to the Florida student newspaper, The Alligator.

According to a report in the Cincinnati Enquirer, Moss posted on her Twitter account that she is probably transferring to Division III Thomas More in Crestview Hills, Ky. When asked for confirmation by the The Alligator, Moss sent a text saying Thomas More was "most likely" her destination.

Because she is transferring to a lower division, Moss would be eligible to play this coming season and have three years of eligibility remaining.

Moss, a 5-foot-11 forward/guard, averaged 11.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists as a freshman as Florida went 22-15 and reached the semifinals of the WNIT.

Thomas More finished 27-2 last season, going 18-0 in the Presidents Athletic Conference. The Saints were upset in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The team's top two scorers, Allison Long and Katie Kitchen, have graduated.
