While nothing is official yet, Moore is pondering getting a release from Indiana and re-opening his recruitment. But before any of that can happen, he has to meet with new head coach Archie Miller on Sunday.
Miller is coming to Indiana from Dayton where he led the Flyers to the NCAA Tournament in each of the last four years; in six seasons, he went 139-63 (.688). Miller’s brother Sean is also the head coach at Arizona.
“I just want to talk to him and see how he would play me,” Moore said. “I want to see how he likes me, how I fit into his system, how he plays, his player development and all that stuff.”
Moore is a lanky 6-9 wing who has an impressive face-up game and can hit the outside jumper.
Even though schools can’t contact Moore directly, they can contact his AAU and high school coaches.
Among the long list of very well known programs, local schools such as Temple, Saint Joe’s, Delaware, Penn State and Villanova have talked to his coaches, according to Moore’s dad.
The recruiting process is nothing new to Moore; after having gone through it once, he feels that he knows what to expect from the schools.
“It helps that I went through the process once,” he said. “I get a better feel for the recruiting but we’ll see what happens.”
In his previous recruitment, Moore chose Indiana over schools such as Northwestern, Ole Miss, Temple, Saint Joe’s and Lafayette.
Moore also said that he is targeting a commitment date before the month of June.
“You have to make sure you don’t make an impulse decision right away just out of emotion,” he added, “so you can’t take it lightly.” -- Austin Petolillo
Bruiser to IU is a direct attack on our recruiting strategy (even if it doesn't have us in mind).
