Moore will walk-on with the Mountaineers next season, joining Isaiah Cottrell, Taj Thweatt and Kedrian Johnson in the 2020 class. Moore had three scholarship offers to play elsewhere from Stetson, North Carolina A&T and Morgan State, but chose to stay in-state with the Mountaineers. Moore played at Greater Berckly Christian and now at Beckley Prep this season.
As a prospect, Moore is unrated by Rivals, but standing at 6-foot-5 is a very Huggins-type of guard. Tall guards on this season’s team include Jermaine Haley (6-foot-7) and Taz Sherman (6-foot-4).
A deep team all over, the Mountaineers have been especially deep at the guard positions this season, playing Jordan McCabe, Brandon Knapper and Miles McBride at point guard and Haley, Sherman, Chase Harler and Sean McNeil at shooting guard. Haley and Harler will both graduate after this season.
