UCLA Looks Into 2009 Guard

Reggie Moore, the 6-1 guard from Wolfeboro (New Hampshire) Brewster Academy, is getting a great deal of interest this spring.

Moore recently took official visits to Oregon and Washington State, turned down a visit to Memphis, and could possibly take an official visit to UCLA, perhaps as soon as this coming weekend.

According to reports, Memphis' new head coach Josh Pastner offered Moore a scholarship, but Moore, reportedly, wants to be on the west coast.

Moore was originally in the 2008 class at Seattle (Wash.) Rainier Beach. He signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Fresno State, but then backed out of that letter last summer. The word was that Washington got involved with him and he intended to, then, go another year to prep school to get out of the NLI and go to Washington.

But Washington then received the commitment of Abdul Gaddy, and Moore was without a school.

Back east playing for Brewster, however, he had a good season and started to get plenty more high-major attention. He, reportedly, matured quite a bit as a player.

This spring, certain programs that are looking for guards are now involved, including UCLA.

For the Bruins, they're in limbo, waiting on what Jrue Holiday is ultimately going to do with the NBA Draft. If he did keep his name in the draft, it would give UCLA an open scholarship, but UCLA will probably not know what Holiday intends to do until mid-June, which could be too late to keep any recruit on the hook, including Moore.

It's uncertain if Moore will, in fact visit UCLA. According to sources, Moore has been contacted by UCLA and there is some discussion of a potential official visit.
