Moore ready to show improvements

Four-star center Quadri Moore is ready to get his junior season started. This year he is hoping to show improvements and why so many college coaches are after him.

For Quadri Moore talent has never been in question. The Linden (NJ) product is one of the most skilled centers in the class of 2014. A four-star prospect, the 6-foot-8 and 270 pounder has a great shooting stroke from the outside, and is looking to show more improvements during his junior season.

"Our season starts on Friday," said Moore. "I am just trying to show people how much I have improved my game since the summer and how hard I have been working."

Known mostly for his ability to make shots from deep, Moore is saying his will be more well rounded as a player this year.

"I have really worked on my mid-range game and also I have worked on my defense on the perimeter," said Moore.

Recruiting wise numerous schools remain in close contact with Moore.

"Recently Rutgers and Seton Hall came to our scrimmages," said Moore. "Villanova has been to a practice, Wake Forest, Providence, and Kansas have also been calling me."

Rutgers is a school that has been after Moore for quite a while, and he says the Scarlet Knights have done a good job in his recruitment.

"I like that it is an in-state program," said Moore. "I have been there and it is a very nice campus. They have good players who are young and they should be good in the future. It seems like a nice program to be around and they have good coaches."

While at this point the Kansas Jayhawks haven't offered, Moore continues to hear from them and he says it is an honor.

"It gets me excited to know that a program like that is interested in me coming to their school," said Moore. "Every time I talk to Kansas it makes me happy to know that I am a quality player that can go to a big time program like that."

At the moment Moore doesn't have a timeline for his decision, and says no commitment is imminent. The No. 65 player overall and No. 8 center is simply focused on his high school season and also on getting better as a player.
