BROOKLYN -- During Friday's Jordan Brand regional All-Star game, four-star senior Clifton Moore showed off impressive skill and athleticism. The Indiana signee asked for a release from his letter of intent last month and after scoring 11 points in the game updated his recruitment.

The first order of business was for new Indiana coach Archie Miller to come out and meet with Moore and his family. The meeting went down on Sunday and Moore broke down the conversation and his feel for Miller after meeting with him.

"We had a home visit and he talked about how he sees me fitting and the player development and all of that," said Moore. "He's a great coach. He told me how he is going to use me. I think I fit into his system well, it's just like my AAU team because we run the same stuff."

Though Moore requested a release, it has not yet been given so he's not yet able to explore other programs.

"There's a lot of schools that want to get involved but I didn't get officially released yet," said Moore. "The due date for a decision is Monday, that will be 30 days since I asked for it."

Perhaps more interesting -- especially to Hoosier fans -- is that Moore is now unsure about whether or not he even wants to be released.

"I don't know yet," said Moore when asked if he still wants to be released. "I need to talk to Archie (Miller) again.

"(Indiana) is a serious option. I just need to talk to Archie and get a better feel for things and then I will make that decision."

Moore added that he's probably going to speak with Miller later on today and that he'll then have to make a decision on whether to move forward with his release request or stick with the Hoosiers.
