The first thing you need to know about Moe Thompson is that his mom has asked Moe to not consider schools beyond 4-6 hours from his home. She asked Moe to consider this because she wants to come see him play regularly. Auburn has offered Moe but according to Moe they are about 8 hours away so, Auburn will probably not be a possibility. In case you're wondering, Moe says Chapel Hill is about 4 hours away.
