Willie Moore Commits to Oregon


Another point guard has committed to the 2012 basketball season for the Oregon Ducks. Willie Moore becomes the fifth prospect to commit to the school, just a few days after he received an offer.

On Tuesday, Oregon gave Moore an offer and he made an official visit to the school a day later. Today, he’s verbally committed to the Ducks for the upcoming season. He is the second point guard to make a commitment, Dominic Artis was the first one last October.

Even though he his not ranked by any of the recruiting sources, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard will add some needed depth. Last season, Moore averaged almost 17 points, 10 assists, and four rebounds per game at Aiken in Cincinnati, Ohio.

According to a Virginia Tech sports website, Tech Sideline, Moore signed with Duquesne back in November. He received a release after head coach Ron Everhardt was fired.

Along with Moore, power forward Anthony Bennett, shooting guard Jerron Wilbut, and strong forward Jarion Henry are the only players that have been offered who have not yet committed to a school.
