Less is Moore

Jamar Moore made a move from Thomasville Central County High to Thomasville High (Ga.) and had to miss some time due to paperwork issues. He led his new team to the state title game and is now hoping to achieve similiar success with the Georgia Stars this spring and summer.

Jamar Moore may have changed high schools, but he hasn't changed his leader.

The former Thomasville Central County (Ga.) High 6-foot-5, 195-pound shooting guard transferred to Thomasville High early in the season and only ended up playing about a dozen total games in his junior campaign.

He scored 25 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in a state championship loss to Dublin at the Macon Coliseum.

``It was a better situation for me at Thomasville," Moore said. "I had to sit until the paperwork came in, so I missed about seven games.

Moore, a big-time shooter, plays for a loaded Georgia Stars team that also featured Gani Lawal and Jeremy Price.

``I want to win the national championship this year," Moore said. "I think the only thing that can beat us is ourselves."

As for his recruitment, Moore has always favored Florida State, which is only about a half-hour from his home – and nothing has changed on that front.

``I haven't made my commitment yet," Moore said. "It'll probably be at the end of April."

Moore said that South Carolina, N.C. State, Alabama and Georgia Tech are on his list, but the Seminoles are on top.

``It's close to my home and I like everything about them," Moore said about FSU. "I like everyone on the team and it seems like they all like each other."
