High-Regarded Class of 2018 Basketball Prospect Checks Out Coach Bruce Pearl's Auburn Program

A four-star hoops recruit talks about his visit to check out the Auburn University campus and the basketball program.

Macon, Ga.--Khavon Moore, a four-star class of 2018 basketball prospect, is getting plenty of attention from colleges, but notes that it is still early in his recruiting process.

The six-foot-eight, 188-pounder from Westside High School visited Auburn and the University of Florida last week to meet with the coaches and check out the campuses. He said that he liked both visits.

“Recruiting is going pretty,” Moore said. “I have picked up a lot of offers recently from teams like Wake Forest, LSU, Georgia Tech. Auburn had already offered me. I have also got offers from Oklahoma, Virginia, Georgia, Troy State and others.”

Noting that he isn’t close to making a decision on a college, he said, “I am young. I am just 16 years old.”

Asked what he is looking for in a college basketball program, Moore said, “I am looking for a school that will let me play my game. I like to play fast-paced.”

Moore said his game includes handling the basketball. “I can play point-forward and I can play the wing, too,” he said. 

He noted that one of the reasons he is looking at Auburn is he likes the team’s style of play with Bruce Pearl as head coach.

This summer, while playing AAU ball for Atlanta Xpress, Moore is working on his jump shot and improving his three-point range.

He is also working on getting stronger and notes there is a possibility he will be taller by the time he is in college. I?think I will get to 6-10 or 6-11 or the most,” he said.

Moore is ranked by as the No. 1 small forward in the 2018 class in the South and No. 3 nationally.
