They made him their number one choice and that was good enough for Chris Moore, a 6-5, 175-pound shooting guard from McKinney High School in McKinney, Texas. "That's why I chose Tulane as opposed to other schools that were looking at me," Moore said. "I felt very comfortable with what they were telling me and where I would fit in."
Tulane is about seven hours by car for the Moore family. "I didn't want to be too close but close enough where my family can spend some time and watch me once in a while," Moore said.
Baylor, SMU, New Mexico, West Virginia, Virginia, Air Force and Brown had expressed some interest during Moore's recruiting process.
RivalsHoops.com reported earlier this spring that Moore, playing for Team Texas, had emerged as one of the top shooters at the Rumble in the Bronx. He connected on five three-pointers in one particular game. Moore shot close to 47 percent from beyond the three point line last season. "I am going up to MCI to get stronger and work on my skills," Moore said. "The competition I hear is great in the league. So it's going to be a challenge and fun."
Moore seems more comfortable catching and shooting the ball as opposed to scoring off the dribble. He has a lighting-quick release with an ability to free himself up for deep balls. Expect Moore to work on his dribble/shot skills this winter.
Moore, who will go to Maine Central Institute for a post-graduate year in the fall, carries a 3.52 GPA.
