Joshua and Jordan Moore are twin brothers, separated by a minute. Their initial college choices couldn't have been much different.

Last December, Joshua Moore signed with the Texas Longhorns. He played six games as a freshman this season.

Moore was a four-star recruit, and the No. 96 player in the country last year.

Jordan Moore had Texas as a finalist, and could have joined his brother in the Longhorns' freshman class. Instead, he opted for a rival.

Moore, a defensive back who was ranked No. 225 overall in the class, went with the Texas A&M Aggies. He chose the program over the Longhorns, as well as Michigan, Ohio State, and Oklahoma.

Jordan Moore recently announced that he will transfer from Texas A&M football after one year as an Aggie.

From his transfer note:

"First off I would like to Thank God for blessing me and my family with this opportunity that many kids dream to experience. Second i wanna Thank Coach Fisher, Coach Elko, and the rest of the Texas A&M football staff for allowing me to play football for one the most prestigious programs in the country. I made many friends here that I'll miss forever, but I know in order for me to achieve my dream and continue to have the love and passion for the game, I need to go where my heart leads me. After many months of prayer and thought, I would like to announce that I will be Transferring from Texas A&M University and pursuing my Athletic and Academic career somewhere else. God Bless!"

Obviously, Joshua Moore doesn't need to go far to talk to his twin brother about transferring. Still, he made his desire for Jordan to become a Longhorn public on Twitter.

It certainly sounds like the Longhorns should be considered the favorite here, but Moore already decided to play elsewhere once.

We'll have more information once Moore releases a list... or officially reveals that he'll be a Longhorn. We're not quite there yet, though.
