FRANK MANTESTA'S PREVIOUS EVALUATION REPORT:

STRENGTHS IN JONATHAN MOORE'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Getting on the class, explosive to the basket, effective slasher to the rim

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Adding some more muscle to his frame and being able to knock down the medium range jumper

EVALUATION: Jonathan has the ability to take over games on Long Island. He's very good in transition and is developing a much more consistent shot.

Moore's perimeter skills are going to determine the level he lands scholarship offers. Reporter Frank Mantesta: "He can hit three or four threes in a row but can also get into slumps. In a recent showcase on Long Island, Moore twice went the length of the court finishing it off with dunks with players on his back.

"He needs to let the game come to him instead of forcing things."
