Posted On: 12/16/17 10:43 AM

DeMatha 2019 guard Justin Moore was not able to show off his killer mentality this summer because of an injury but so far in the first two weeks of his high school season, he is making up for that missed time. Moore is becoming one of the most sought-after juniors on the east coast. The 6’3 combo guard plays with tons of energy and is always playing with a high motor. Early this season he has been scoring at all three levels and his passing has been very note worthy, too.

“I didn’t get to play this summer but I learned a lot from Team Takeover, the coaches were talking to me while my teammates were playing and it was great learning.”

With the departure of DJ Harvey and other seniors, Justin Moore has taken his leadership up to another level and he is happy with how the start of the season has gone, “Most people did not think we were going to come out this well, but we started off good and we just got to keep it up.”

He is enjoying how his recruitment is going and three schools really stick out to him.

“Recruitment is going well, a lot of schools are talking to me and keeping in touch with me. Maryland, Wake Forest and Xavier, those three schools really want me to commit right now.” He broke down those three schools below.

Maryland: “They come up to my practice a lot and I have a great relationship with the coaches and all the staff, so yeah, it is good.

Wake Forest: “I took a visit up there and it was great, Coach Manning is a great coach.”

Xavier: “I took a visit up there too, and I have a great relationship with the coaches.”

There are three other schools that have grabbed Moore’s attention being Villanova, Notre Dame and Virginia.

Villanova: “I need to go up to Villanova again, I went up there once, but I need to go up there again for a game or so. I have a great relationship with them, one of my friends, Brandon Slater, is going there so he talks to me a lot about Villanova.”

Notre Dame: “They are really on me, I have a great relationship with Mike Brey, he went to DeMatha so he knows what it is like to be a DeMatha player, so it is great.”

Virginia: “They have not offered yet but they keep talking to me a lot. I took a visit up there a couple times. I have a great relationship with them and I am really cool with them, but they talk a lot to me.”
