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.
