"Willie Moore committed to Oregon during his visit," said Moore's former AAU coach Tre Potter.
According to Potter, it was Oregon's returning team and overall atmosphere that made the difference in the 6-foot-2 combo guard picking the school.
"Just the team they have returning was huge," said Potter. "With Tony Woods and E.J. Singler coming back they should be real good next year. Also they lost a lot of guards so there is playing time there for Willie, he could get 20-30 minutes per game if he does what he is supposed to do."
Potter went on to single out Singler as someone who did an excellent job on the visit of making Moore feel at home.
"I have been on a lot of visits, and I don't know if I have seen someone do a better job of hosting a kid than E.J. Singler," said Potter. "He was great, he made Willie feel a part of the team, and overall he really made him feel comfortable."
Add in a good relationship with former University of Cincinnati assistant Tony Stubblefield as well as a strong effort by head coach Dana Altman, and Moore decided that Oregon was the right place for him.
Moore is a three-star prospect who has a ton of natural ability. He has played both the point guard and shooting guard positions, and is hoping to play on the ball when he gets to college.
