SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- After impressing Syracuse assistant coaches Gerry McNamara and Mike Hopkins over the weekend, class of 2018 wing Khalid Moore earned himself a phone call to gage his interest from a former National Champion. 

"Coach McNamara called me on Monday and wanted to know when a good time to talk was," he told CuseNation.com. McNamara called Khalid back on Tuesday and the two had a very productive conversation, he said.

"It went really well," the 6-foot-7 wing said. "We talked about my upcoming tournaments and what I thought about Syracuse."

Moore runs with the U16 NY RENS, and McNamara and Hopkins got a chance to watch him at Peach Jam over the weekend. 

Moore averaged 17.5 points, including a game-high 23 against Team Melo, in front of the two assistants. He also grabbed 5.5 boards per game.

"We talked about how I liked their system they run. He also invited me to the Elite Camp in August."

There wasn't any talk of an offer, but if Moore continues to impress, it could come in the near future. 

Moore is a rising junior and attends Archbishop Molloy in Queens, NY. 

Molloy has many notable alum, including former NBA player and TNT analysts Kenny "The Jet" Smith, Miami head coach Jim Larranaga, actor/comedian Ray Romano, former NBA player Kenny Anderson and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
