Marquise Moore Commits to George Mason

Posted In News, Recruiting - By Josh Holman On Thursday, May 2nd, 2013 With 2 Comments

marmooreJust a few months ago it looked as though George Mason would have to play against Marquise Moore and Hofstra next year in the CAA – isn’t it funny how things change. Mason is no longer Hofstra’s conference foe, and now Moore will be wearing green and gold.

Paul Hewitt and staff received a 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 More Academy for a prep year and switching positions.  While at St. Thomas More, he average 11 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists per game.

Moore originally signed with Hofstra 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.  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.

  1. Less of Cory (captain turnover) at the point has to be a plus.

  2. It was pretty painful for much of the season, but the tandem of Cory and Bryon finally started to tick during the CBI run to the finals. I like Moore’s height and like this commitment if his primary role is to be a passing PG with fewer turnovers.
