Upstate Swingman Generating D-1 Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan updates the recruiting status and future of Pat Moore, a talented two sport star from upstate New York ... Moore will play for the Albany City Rocks this month ...

Pat Moore, a 6-foot-6 combo forward from Notre Dame High School in Utica, N.Y., continues to hold consistent division one interest in his ability to play the game of basketball. He's also a terrific baseball player too, giving himself some great options.

An excellent student, he already has offers from the Ivy League and Patriot League schools. "MAAC and Atlantic Ten schools are also showing interest," said Albany City Rocks AAU program direction/head coach Jim Hart.

His AAU coach, Jim Hart, has already spoken to us several times about Moore's value to his Albany City Rocks basketball program. "He just finds a way to help you win a game," said Hart.

"He's already having a good Eastern (Invitational) camp," Hart added. "He's going to be with us for the Peach Jam, the Showcase and the Nationals. So the coaches will have plenty of chances to watch him play."


A gifted athlete who seems to succeed in the most stressful sport challenges, Moore will have many options as he moves towards a decision regarding his college career.

Moore has the basketball smarts and skill level to help his teams win close contests. Pat has down it a number of ways too from our personal experience of watching him compete mainly on the AAU level.

Pat, in the past, has hit clutch free throws, dived on a floor to get a loose ball, grab rebounds in traffic, or hit a corner jumper.

Moore was a key player in the summer for the Albany City Rocks basketball program for 16 and under age category.
