Marquise Moore Commits to George Mason
Just a few months ago it looked as though George Mason would have to playÂ against Marquise Moore and Hofstra next year in the CAA – isn’t it funny how things change.Â Mason is no longer Hofstra’s conference foe, and now Moore will be wearing green and gold.
Paul Hewitt and staff received aÂ commitment from the 6’2 point guard. Moore, much like current Patriot Bryon Allen, played shooting guard in high school before going to St Thomas MoreÂ AcademyÂ for a prep year and switching positions. Â While at St. Thomas More, he average 11 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists per game.
Moore originally signed with HofstraÂ over offers from Rider, Cleveland State, Marist, and Fairfield. He decided to open up his recruitment when Moe Cassara was let go, allowing Mason to enter the picture. Â Coach Hewitt watched Moore play in an open gym at St. Thomas More back on April 12th, which followed with an offer a little more than a week later. Moore was also getting interest from Tulane, Providence, and UConn.
Moore should be able to provide some depth at the point guard position, sharing time with Corey Edwards. His commitment means that Mason has one more scholarship available for the 2013 class.
