Khalid Moore emerges at the Gonzaga DC Classic

2018 wing Khalid Moore was a standout at the recent Gonzaga DC Classic. Following the event, Scout caught up with him for Q&A about the latest in his recruitment.

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.
