Two-Sport Evan Moore

Having first always been known primarily as a basketball player, Evan Moore of Brea then impressed college football coaches this spring as a football prospect. Now, he's talking about both sports...

Evan Moore, 6-6 SR PF/SF, Brea (Calif.) Brea-Olinda, has become a pretty well-sought football recruiting target as a result of his performances at various spring and summer camps and combines.

He has great size for a football player and it's obvious he uses his basketball talents on the football field, able to use his body to "block out" defenders as a wide receiver, as well as very good hands. Even though he was out for a major portion of his junior football season with a broken collar bone, he still caught 24 passes and had 10 TDs.

He said that schools are recruiting him as a big receiver in the mold of Stanford's Teyo Johnson, who, coincidentally, also plays basketball for Stanford, or as a tight end. "Either way, it's fine with me," Moore said.

Right now, Moore said that he's seriously considering Stanford, UCLA, USC and Notre Dame, but Stanford and USC are his current favorites since both have offered scholarships. But he added, "UCLA is right there, too, but they haven't offered."

Being probably a mid-major basketball recruit, Moore said he wants to also play basketball in college. "Stanford told me I could possibly play both sports," Moore said. "Wherever I go I'd like to try it." He averaged 22 points and 12 boards a game as a junior at Brea-Olinda.

Moore said he wants to wait before he makes any kind of decision. "I'll see who offers, take some trips, and think about all the schools and the factors," he said.

Obviously a good student, Moore said he has a 4.4 GPA and scored a 1120 on the SAT.
