Moore continues to garner attention

Center Quadri Moore is one of the top prospects on the East Coast,and numerous schools are beginning to turn up the heat in his recruitment.

Four-star center Quadri Moore from Linden (NJ) can be very difficult to defend. The 6-foot-9 and 255 pounder is a pick and pop center with an excellent shooting touch. With his unique skill set Moore is continuing to pick up college interest.

It was a solid high school year for Moore, and now he is trying to keep the momentum up this spring and summer on the AAU circuit with Sports U.

"My high school year went good," said Moore. "I averaged 15 and 12. Also I really worked on my perimeter defense because I know that is something I have to improve on."

One are that was an obvious improvement for Moore is his conditioning. Moore was noticeably thinner and looked to be running the floor better.

"I am just getting into the weight room and doing what I have to do to better myself," Moore explained.

Recruiting wise Moore has several offers with more and more schools calling and saying they have an interest in recruiting him.

"Recently I spoke with Wake Forest, Providence, Pittsburgh, Florida, and Tulsa," said Moore. "I have offers from Cincinnati, Georgetown, Seton Hall, Providence, Wake Forest, and some others."

Even with all of the attention coming his way, Moore says that he is still at the beginning of the recruiting process.

"It is a good experience and I am just enjoying it right now," Moore explained. "I really don't have a timeframe on when I am going to choose a school and I don't have any visits lined up."

While he hasn't begun to organize a list of favorites or start planning any visits, Moore does have a good idea of what he is looking for in a school.

"I am looking for a good program, a great history, and good academics," said Moore. "Location isn't really something that is a problem for me. I can stay close or go far."

Moore is considered the No. 11 center and the No. 71 player overall in the 2014 class.
