E'Twaun Moore Favoring One

E'Twaun Moore is all about loyalty and that's why, despite inquiries from heavy hitters like Arizona, the junior combo guard out of East Chicago Central High (Ind.) still has one local school at the top of his list.

E'Twaun Moore had as productive of an April as just about anyone.

The East Chicago Central High (Ind.) 6-foot-3 combo guard was impressive while playing for an SYF team that has been equally impressive for the first half of the traveling circuit.

He showed the ability to score from just about anywhere on the court – and he did it consistently as well. He is strong enough to finish, can pull-up from mid-range and also has the range to knock down shots from 3-point range.

Moore went into the month with local favorite Purdue as his leader and despite recent inquiries from the likes of schools such as Arizona, Georgia Tech and Cincinnati, the Boilermakers remain at the top of his list.

``You could say that," said the humble and soft-spoken Moore.

Moore said one of the reasons for his ability to get people to notice him in the last eight weeks is because of his teammates.

``We've really worked together as a team," Moore said. "Everyone knows their role and we actually play as a team."

Moore will attend the Nike Skills Academy in Portland, Ore., later this month before heading to the Nike All-American Camp in early July.

``I just want to win some more tournaments in July and try and get better," Moore said. "Just show people I know how to play the game."

In addition to Purdue, Moore said that he is also considering Tennessee, Illinois and Iowa high atop the list.

``I just want to go somewhere I can be successful," Moore said. "Somewhere that will really work with me to become the best player I can be."
