Owls Nab Missouri Swingman

The Rice Owls received a commitment from a member of the Class of 2002 last week. The Owls went to Missouri for swingman and dug up an all-stater.

Moore Picks Owls

Jamal Moore, a 6-5, 190 pound swingman from Moberly (MO) High selected the Rice Owls and will play for head coach Willis Wilson.

"Out of the schools recruiting me, most of them were the same with their academics but Rice's were a lot better," Moore said.

A first-team all-stater in 3-A, Moore averaged 27 points a night prior to injuring his ankle in December. Illinois-Chicago, UT-Chattanooga and Drake recruited him hard.

Moore expects to play some two guard and small forward for Rice. He played last summer with St. Louis Gameface on the AAU circuit.
