Moore to Mason
St. Thomas More post-graduate guard Marquis Moore made a verbal commitment to George Mason on Thursday.
Moore is a New York native who graduated from Holy Cross High School in Flushing last year. He was previously committed to Hofstra, but opted to re-open his recruitment following Mo Cassara’s departure as head coach.
The six-foot-one guard plays a game that is representative of his home city as he is best known for his ability to break defenders down off the dribble.
That playmaking ability will be of major value to George Mason next season, as they make their debut in the Atlantic 10 Conference.
Moore came up the AAU ranks with Raising Champions but also spent time with New Rens last summer.
This season at STM, he proved himself to be more of a true point guard while also improving his perimeter jump shot.
Those developments led him to a much higher level of recruitment than he saw during his high school days, with a slew of mid-major programs pursuing him throughout the season.
Mason is the sixth member of this year’s St. Thomas More team to earn a full athletic scholarship, joining Duane Notice (South Carolina), Gabe Levin (Loyola Marymount), Denzel Gregg (St. Bonaventure), Dylan Haines (Boston University), and Chris Walters (Southern New Hampshire).
