PantherReport's interview with Quinton Moore:
What are your feelings towards Pittsburgh?
"I am definitely interested, my mom really likes Pittsburgh. I just have not been able to learn much about the program. Since they have offered, I will check them out."
What will be the most important factors in your decision process?
"The relationship that my mom develops with the staff. We have to feel like if I go to a certain school they are going to take care of me and make sure I do the right thing and make the correct choices. When you're away from home, you need that father figure."
What would you consider as your strengths as a player?
"My speed and my alertness."
Are there any specific areas you feel that you need to improve on?
"Strength, just getting stronger. I would also say developing my reads a little better, anticipating better."
