One of the emerging prospects this past weekend at the Gonzaga DC Classic was 2018 recruit Khalid Moore.
Moore, a 6-foot-6 wing out of Briarwood (N.Y.) Molloy, showed a natural scoring ability in our viewing on Friday evening. Moore scored it at the rim, knocked down a mid-range pull-up and also connected on a catch and shoot three-pointer.
Moore has good size, length and athleticism for his position, plus has the potential to be a good perimeter defender in time.
Q&A with Khalid Moore
How do you think you did today?
I think I did pretty good. I think we did pretty good as a team and I contributed a little bit.
Describe your game to me..When you’re at your best what are you doing?
I’m a really good all-around player I can get to the basket usually, very athletic, versatile, I can shoot a little bit and I play defense.
What’s something you’re trying to work on and get better at for next season?
For this season, I think I can work on being a more consistent shooter.
Have you done any unofficial visits yet?
Yeah I took an unofficial to St. John's (NY) and Rutgers…They were sometime over the summer and I went to Syracuse for one of their camps.
Where are you at with this whole process?
I think I’m still really early in my process and I still have a lot of time to decide on what I want to do.
Who did you play with this spring on the AAU circuit?
Rens 16s…Yeah I think I’m staying with them next year.
