How'd He Get to College Park?
Moore helped lead Westwood to a playoff appearance, and was an All-District player in high school. He spoke with us about his commitment soon after.
BM: You know what? I keep on saying it but it's the relationship that the coaches made the effort to strike up with me. They really recruited me as a person, not as a four-year player. Most colleges, they treat recruits like they're going to be four years - like they're using them and then they're going to throw them out - and that's not what I got from Coach Stewart and Coach Brattan. They believe in me, and that really means a lot to me.
Moore also wrote an essay on how to get recruited to be a college athlete, which we published here.
Scout team player of the week honors before the Syracuse game.
Moore plays well in spot time and secures himself a starting job in 2016 and beyond.
With the release of the first preseason depth chart, we know Moore is Maryland's No. 2 center, behind senior Evan Mulrooney. That means he will likely see some playing time this year as a redshirt freshman, and has the inside track on a three-year starting job starting in 2016.
Our next player is in a three-way battle for a starting position, and chose Maryland over walk-on offers from Rutgers and Penn State.
