Moore Turns It Up; Gets New Calls

Reggie Moore seems to have turned a corner. He's playing better, has great grades and could turn into a prime target for many as the spring approaches.

As his post-grad season is coming to an end, Reggie Moore is starting to live up to expectations at Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy.

According to Brewster Academy head coach Jason Smith, Moore has turned into a different player over the past five games. He's raised his assist total and has become a better overall floor general.

"He's been playing fantastic, especially probably over the past four or five games," Smith said. "At the beginning of the year he was deferring to people too much. Now he's been much more aggressive and he can pretty much get to the rim at will and he's a spectacular passer."

"Over the last couple of weeks he's been much more aggressive," Smith continued. "My instinct was to play him more off the ball at the beginning of the year, but now he plays the point."

For the year Moore averages 11 points and 4.5 assists a game on a team that also included Kansas signee Thomas Robinson and Oklahoma signee Andrew Fitzgerald.

Originally, Moore, a 6-foot-1, 175-pounder, signed with Fresno State and was a member of the 2008 class. But he asked for his release and headed to Brewster Academy to do a prep school year.

Despite the clear need for point guards in the 2009 class, Moore's recruitment appears to still be in the beginning stages. Smith said Stanford, Washington and Baylor have made recent calls, but for the most part his recruitment is wide open.

"He's kind of just waiting to see what happens this springs with coaches taking jobs and others possibly transferring," Smith said. "I think ultimately he'd like to end up back on the west coast and play at the highest level."

"He's just kind of going through the season and we'll go into the spring to see who has a sincere interest," he said. "We are probably going to wait until the domino effect of jobs happens as well."
