LITTLE ROCK -- It came as no surprise Wednesday when 2020 Arkansas Razorbacks target Chris Moore of West Memphis released his "Final 3" schools via Twitter that his list is down to the Hogs, Memphis, and Auburn.

Moore (6-6 combo forward, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com) started with a top 20 that was later whittled down to a top 14, but given he only scheduled three official visits (Arkansas in September, Memphis in October, and Auburn for the upcoming weekend of Nov. 1-3) combined with previously announcing he would sign during the early period that is just a few weeks away, Wednesday's announcement served to formally confirm that inevitable three-team showdown for Moore's services.

In fact, following Moore's OV to Arkansas in early September, he told Hogville.net the Hogs had climbed into his Top 3.

"It was amazing," Moore said of his visit on Sept. 4. "Coach Muss (Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman) was so in tune with everything. It was obvious he's been coaching at the highest level, especially the way he treated me and my family on my official visit.

"They're in my Top 3 now. He really won me over this weekend."

Moore also held offers from Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Ole Miss among a list that included more than 20 NCAA Division 1 suitors.

Moore will be joined on his visit to Auburn by another in-state frontline Hog target -- Jaylin Williams (6-10 forward / center, Fort Smith Northside, composite national No. 69 / 4-star prospect), who wil also be on an official visit with the Tigers. The big men were teammates this spring and summer playing with Woodz Elite 17U on the Nike EYBL circuit.

LITTLE ROCK -- In what was a weekend of firsts for the Arkansas Razorbacks men's basketball program and Chris Moore, the West Memphis combo forward said his official visit to Fayetteville was "amazing" and that the Hogs are now in his "Top 3."

"It was amazing," Moore said of his visit while on his way home to West Memphis on Sunday. "Coach Muss was so in tune with everything. It was obvious he's been coaching at the highest level, especially the way he treated me and my family on my official visit.

"They're in my Top 3 now. He really won me over this weekend."

Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com) declined to name the other two schools at the top of his list, but he did confirm that he will sign during the week-long early period that runs Nov. 13-20.

Moore's trip to Fayetteville marked: 1) the first time a high school prospect completed two official visits in school history as Moore also OV'ed to Arkansas in 2018; 2) it was head coach Eric Musselman's first high school prospect to OV since he took over the program in early April; 3) it was Moore's first time on Arkansas's campus since Musselman was hired; and 4) it was Moore's first senior-season OV out of at least four scheduled for the next few weeks.

Moore, whose Arkansas offer from the previous coaching staff was reaffirmed by Musselman during his first week on the job as Head Hog, will also take OVs to Memphis (Oct. 4-6), Texas A&M (Oct. 11-13), Auburn (Nov. 1-3), and possibly Iowa State (originally set for Sept. 13-15, it may be rescheduled).

On Friday morning before Moore arrived for his OV in Fayetteville, his brother and West Memphis assistant coach Alvin Hawkins confirmed that Moore will sign his national letter of intent "early."

Arkansas coaches have made Moore a priority, taking on-campus and in-home visits with him in West Memphis on Sept. 9 -- the first day of the nearly six-month-long NCAA recruiting period -- before coming back last week to see him at practice again.

Moore talked more on Sunday about his weekend visit ...

On the presentation made by Musselman and his staff: "Coach Muss basically broke it all down. He told me stuff I didn't know about myself. He broke it down, from analytics to the way I can carry myself off the court to what goes on behind NBA draft rooms. I learned a lot from this visit."

On Razorbacks basketball practice on Saturday: "I love the way he ran practice, because it was like nobody was standing around. Everybody was moving, everybody was in tune. Everything came together on the court, it was amazing."

On whether or not he thought about committing to Arkansas during his visit: "No. I've still got to weigh my options. Arkansas was my first visit and I've got to look at other colleges. They're in my Top 3 for sure, so we'll see in November."

On his family's takeaways from the visit: "It was my brother and his wife, my nephew, and my Mom. They were all pleased. My Mom was intrigued with how Coach Musselman ran that whole official visit."

Moore had previously talked about that Sept. 9 in-home visit with Musselman and Hogs assistant coach Corey Williams.

"It went great," Moore said. "I heard some really good things. He (Musselman) was giving me a perspective that a lot of college coaches haven't given me. It kind of gave me a new thing to think about when it comes time to narrow my list."

Moore said he was particularly impressed with Musselman's vision for him at Arkansas.

"He gave me the comparison to Jordan Caroline (who played for Musselman at Nevada)," Moore said. "He was comparing how our games were almost identical, how he developed Jordan Caroline, how his numbers grew every year, and how he can get me to the next level -- to the NBA.

"They talked about the vision the have for me to be a Razorback."

Moore said Musselman and Williams raved about his motor and effort as a player and competitor.

"Of course my energy, that I play hard, my leadership," Moore recalled of what Hog coaches told him Monday night. "Intangibles that I bring that most players don't bring to the table."

Moore said the positive in-home visit set the table for his OV to Arkansas.

"Yes it does," he acknowledged. "Meeting with the coaches gives me the feeling that they're really serious about me and want me to be a part of their program."

Moore was 17U Woodz Elite's leading scorer this spring and summer at more than 17 points per game, and he had a strong showing at the Nike Peach Jam in mid-July that included a 15-point, 19-rebound, 5-block performance during pool play -- a reminder of the double-double capability he brings to the floor every night. Including the the 13-game Nike EYBL circuit regular-season, Moore finished fourth in "box plus/minus" in the league.

"You know it helped me a lot," Moore said during an Aug. 3 interview when asked about playing on the Nike circuit. "Now I got to the see the best of the best in the whole world (of grassroots basketball), from each state and each big city. Playing against those great guys, I got to see the competition I'm going to be playing against for a very long time (in college). It was a great experience, we fell short, but just being there and playing against those great guys was just a blessing."

Moore is chiseled at 6-6, he's quick and powerfully explosive, has an elite motor, and his improved handling and mid-range shooting skill projects him to playing a 3/4-combo-forward role at the college level. Moore's instincts and interior craft are reminiscent of Arkansas legend Corliss Williamson, and his leadership and team-first mentality helped make him a recruiting priority for the Hogs.

EDIT / UPDATE (9:26 a.m. CT, Friday, Sept. 20, 2019): When he arrives at the University of Arkansas mid-afternoon on Friday, 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports) will make a bit of history as he will become the first-ever high school prospect to take two official visits with the Razorbacks men's basketball program.

Moore took his first junior-year official visit to Fayetteville in the fall of 2018. This weekend will mark the first of at least for and possibly five senior-year offical visits for Moore, who will also take OVs to Memphis (Oct. 4-6), Texas A&M (Oct. 11-13), Auburn (Nov. 1-3), and Iowa State (originally set for Sept. 13-15, it may be rescheduled).

Arkansas coaches have made the combo forward with a big motor a priority as head coach Eric Musselman and assistant coach Corey Williams made an in-home visit with Moore on Sept. 9 -- the first day of the nearly six-month-long NCAA recruiting period -- followed by assistant coach Clay Moser going back out to West Memphis on Wednesday to watch Moore practice.

Based on that visit schedule, it's possible (if not likely) that Moore will sign during the early period that runs Wednesday, Nov. 13, through Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Linked below are two previous stories published here at Hogville.net -- the most-recent posted on Sept. 9 that includes Moore's thoughts and takeaways from his in-home visit with Musselman and Williams, followed by an earlier story announcing Moore's OV date at Arkansas with more background on his Arkansas recruitment ... and below that are highlights and photos of Arkansas's on-campus and in-home visit with Moore in West Memphis ...

EDIT / UPDATE (9:02 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman and assistant coach Corey Williams were in West Memphis on Monday night for an in-home visit with 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports).

Earlier on Monday afternoon, Williams dropped by West Memphis basketball practice to see Moore (photos of Arkansas's on-campus and in-home visit are linked at the bottom of the page).

The in-home visit Monday night improved Arkansas's standing with Moore.

"It went great," Moore said. "I heard some really good things. He (Musselman) was giving me a perspective that a lot of college coaches haven't given me. It kind of gave me a new thing to think about when it comes time to narrow my list."

Moore pared his list down to 14 teams several weeks ago, and though it may be "late October, early November" before he does it again, he confirmed on Monday night that he will take official visits to Arkansas (currently set for Sept. 20-22), Iowa State, Memphis (Oct. 4-6), Auburn, and Texas A&M.

Mooreís visit to Arkansas might actually happen a week sooner ó which would be this weekend (Sept. 13-15) ó due to a potential scheduling conflict with finalizing his OV to Iowa State.

Moore said he was particularly impressed with Musselman's vision for him at Arkansas.

"He gave me the comparison to Jordan Caroline (who played for Musselman at Nevada)," Moore said. "He was comparing how our games were almost identical, how he developed Jordan Caroline, how his numbers grew every year, and how he can get me to the next level -- to the NBA.

"They talked about the vision the have for me to be a Razorback."

Moore said the positive in-home visit sets the table for his official visit to Arkansas, whether that takes place this week or next.

"Yes it does," he acknowledged. "Meeting with the coaches gives me the feeling that they're really serious about me and want me to be a part of their program."

Moore hosted an in-home visit Monday morning with Memphis head coach Penny Hardaway.

"Same thing, it was great," Moore said of that meeting. "Penny said he sees himself in me, being a hungry player, an alpha dog that never shies down from competition."

Moore confirmed last week that he'd take an official visit to Arkansas the weekend of Sept. 20-22, which will mark his second OV to Fayetteville in roughly a year's time.

LITTLE ROCK -- 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore is planning to take an official visit to Arkansas the weekend of September 20-22, according to his brother Alvin Hawkins.

Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect accoding to 247Sports.com) took his first junior-year official visit to Arkansas in the fall of 2018, and he has been to the Fayetteville campus several times for unofficial visits over the years.

Moore's upcoming OV to Arkansas will make him the first multiple official visitor from the high school ranks in Razorbacks history. It will also mark his first stop on campus since Arkansas hired Eric Musselman as head coach on April 7. Just days after being hired, Musselman reaffirmed Moore's Hog scholarship offer made by the previous coaching staff.

Arkansas coaches will be in West Memphis on Monday, Sept. 9, to visit Moore.

Moore is set to take an official visit to Iowa State the weekend of Sept. 13-15. After his Arkansas visit, Moore will take an OV to Memphis (Oct. 4-6). That will leave him with two official visits to take if he chooses.

"I don't (have) the exact date, but we're for sure going to Arkansas for a visit," Moore said during an Aug. 3 interview. "We're going to Iowa State, maybe Kentucky, we'll go to Memphis ... Ole Miss for an Ole Miss football game. To my knowledge, that's all I know so far."

In August, Moore pared his list of 20 schools down to 14 -- Arkansas, Memphis, Auburn, Iowa State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, St. John's, Wichita State, Tulsa, Murray State, Kentucky, and North Carolina -- and he's expected to trim his list down again no later than October.

"We're going to cut it down, probably October," Moore said during that Aug. 3 interview. "When I'm down with all my visits, I'm gonna cut it down in October."

Moore was 17U Woodz Elite's leading scorer this spring and summer at more than 17 points per game, and he had a strong showing at the Nike Peach Jam in mid-July that included a 15-point, 19-rebound, 5-block performance during pool play -- a reminder of the double-double capability he brings to the floor every night. Including the the 13-game Nike EYBL circuit regular-season, Moore finished fourth in "box plus/minus" in the league.

"You know it helped me a lot," Moore said during that Aug. 3 interview when asked about playing on the Nike circuit. "Now I got to the see the best of the best in the whole world (of grassroots basketball), from each state and each big city. Playing against those great guys, I got to see the competition I'm going to be playing against for a very long time (in college). It was a great experience, we fell short, but just being there and playing against those great guys was just a blessing."

Moore was 17U Woodz Elite's leading scorer this spring and summer at more than 17 points per game, and he had a strong showing at the Nike Peach Jam in mid-July that included a 15-point, 19-rebound, 5-block performance during pool play -- a reminder of the double-double capability he brings to the floor every night. Including the the 13-game Nike EYBL circuit regular-season, Moore finished fourth in "box plus/minus" in the league.

"You know it helped me a lot," Moore said during that Aug. 3 interview when asked about playing on the Nike circuit. "Now I got to the see the best of the best in the whole world (of grassroots basketball), from each state and each big city. Playing against those great guys, I got to see the competition I'm going to be playing against for a very long time (in college). It was a great experience, we fell short, but just being there and playing against those great guys was just a blessing."

Moore is chiseled at 6-6, he's quick and powerfully explosive, has an elite motor, and his improved handling and mid-range shooting skill that projects him to playing a 3/4-combo-forward role at the college level. Moore's instincts and interior craft are reminiscent of Arkansas legend Corliss Williamson, and his leadership and team-first mentality make him a recruiting priority for the Hogs.

I hope we get him, we at least made it from his Final 20 into his Final 14. Fingers crossed that in October we make his Final 10.

Not a big deal to me if these kids want to do that. Takes up no bandwith in my brain. All that matters is that we're likely in CM's top 2.

So Moody, KK, Williams, and Thompson all cut their list to top 7. Moore hasnít.  Anyway, all of them cutting to 7 seems as if theyíre communicating with each other. Iím sure itís nothing, 7 just seems weird.

I kinda agree. They think they are rock stars. My top 16 teams! Really? They don't have but probably 4 or 5 teams that really have a shot from the beginning. They know where they've always wanted to go. They just hold the coaches hostage and thru can't look elsewhere. But... it is what it is. Just like the NBA. The players are bigger than the game now

EDIT / UPDATE (9:02 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman and assistant coach Corey Williams were in West Memphis on Monday night for an in-home visit with 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports).

Earlier on Monday afternoon, Williams dropped by West Memphis basketball practice to see Moore (photos of Arkansas's on-campus and in-home visit are linked at the bottom of the page).

The in-home visit Monday night improved Arkansas's standing with Moore.

"It went great," Moore said. "I heard some really good things. He (Musselman) was giving me a perspective that a lot of college coaches haven't given me. It kind of gave me a new thing to think about when it comes time to narrow my list."

Moore pared his list down to 14 teams several weeks ago, and though it may be "late October, early November" before he does it again, he confirmed on Monday night that he will take official visits to Arkansas (currently set for Sept. 20-22), Iowa State, Memphis (Oct. 4-6), Auburn, and Texas A&M.

Mooreís visit to Arkansas might actually happen a week sooner ó which would be this weekend (Sept. 13-15) ó due to a potential scheduling conflict with finalizing his OV to Iowa State.

Moore said he was particularly impressed with Musselman's vision for him at Arkansas.

"He gave me the comparison to Jordan Caroline (who played for Musselman at Nevada)," Moore said. "He was comparing how our games were almost identical, how he developed Jordan Caroline, how his numbers grew every year, and how he can get me to the next level -- to the NBA.

"They talked about the vision the have for me to be a Razorback."

Moore said Musselman and Williams raved about his motor and effort as a player and competitor.

"Of course my energy, that I play hard, my leadership," Moore recalled of what Hog coaches told him Monday night. "Intangibles that I bring that most players don't bring to the table."

Moore said the positive in-home visit sets the table for his official visit to Arkansas, whether that takes place this week or next.

"Yes it does," he acknowledged. "Meeting with the coaches gives me the feeling that they're really serious about me and want me to be a part of their program."

Moore hosted an in-home visit Monday morning with Memphis head coach Penny Hardaway.

"Same thing, it was great," Moore said of that meeting. "Penny said he sees himself in me, being a hungry player, an alpha dog that never shies down from competition."

Moore confirmed last week that he'd take an official visit to Arkansas the weekend of Sept. 20-22, which will mark his second OV to Fayetteville in roughly a year's time.

To learn more about the latest in Moore's recruitment, please read my Hogville.net story below that was published on Wednesday, Sept. 4 ...



hogwood:
Kevin, do you get the impression that the coaches are ready to take commitments from any of these 2020 kids they are going hard after? Or are they prioritizing a certain 2-3 kids? I dont expect you to name anyone, just curious about the approach here when it seems there are about 10 recruits they are focusing on.

Right now they are prioritizing, but at some point in the near future there will be some hard choices being made.

Seems like Thompson, Walker, Williams, and Moore are the priority based on the recent visits. JMO. Moody and Robinson only have 1 coach visiting them if I understand correctly, while the others have 2. Also noting that Lampkin isn't getting visited...

Yes and LAMPKIN needs to be signed. He and KK both. IMO sign LAMPKIN and if Williams decides to grace us with his presence take them both.

IronMountainHog:
I donít feel good about Moore, Penny seems to want him badly. He could go there but I just donít see him getting many touches with all the ball hogs they brought in recently. Oh well, if he goes there I hope they close the door to coming back here if things donít work out. I think this year we will see how poor of a bench coach Hardaway is as his roster is stacked.

Yeah Duke had no fluidity with all the blue chippers and choked when it mattered, however Coach K can actually coach. Penny is an AAU and high school coach who got a chance because of his name and history at the school. Memphis last year sucked and he had Sam Mitchell holding his hand on the bench. This year is on him so we will see if he can actually make adjustments, draw up plays, and take advantage is mismatches. I am not convinced he can.

Kevin McPherson:
EDIT / UPDATE (9:25 a.m. CT, Friday, Sept. 20, 2019): When he arrives at the University of Arkansas mid-afternoon on Friday, 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports) will make a bit of history as he will become the first-ever high school prospect to take two official visits with the Razorbacks men's basketball program.

Moore took his first junior-year official visit to Fayetteville in the fall of 2018. This weekend will mark the first of at least for and possibly five senior-year offical visits for Moore, who will also take OVs to Memphis (Oct. 4-6), Texas A&M (Oct. 11-13), Auburn (Nov. 1-3), and Iowa State (originally set for Sept. 13-15, it may be rescheduled).

Arkansas coaches have made the combo forward with a big motor a priority as head coach Eric Musselman and assistant coach Corey Williams made an in-home visit with Moore on Sept. 9 -- the first day of the nearly six-month-long NCAA recruiting period -- followed by assistant coach Clay Moser going back out to West Memphis on Wednesday to watch Moore practice.

Based on that visit schedule, it's possible (if not likely) that Moore will sign during the early period that runs Wednesday, Nov. 13, through Wednesday, Nov. 20.

By Kevin McPherson

LITTLE ROCK -- In what was a weekend of firsts for the Arkansas Razorbacks men's basketball program and Chris Moore, the West Memphis combo forward said his official visit to Fayetteville was "amazing" and that the Hogs are now in his "Top 3."

"It was amazing," Moore said of his visit while on his way home to West Memphis on Sunday. "Coach Muss was so in tune with everything. It was obvious he's been coaching at the highest level, especially the way he treated me and my family on my official visit.

"They're in my Top 3 now. He really won me over this weekend."

Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star according to 247Sports.com) declined to name the other two schools at the top of his list, but he did confirm that he will sign during the week-long early period that runs Nov. 13-20.

Moore's trip to Fayetteville marked: 1) the first time a high school prospect completed two official visits in school history as Moore also OV'ed to Arkansas in 2018; 2) it was head coach Eric Musselman's first high school prospect to OV since he took over the program in early April; 3) it was Moore's first time on Arkansas's campus since Musselman was hired; and 4) it was Moore's first senior-season OV out of at least four scheduled for the next few weeks.

Moore, whose Arkansas offer from the previous coaching staff was reaffirmed by Musselman during his first week on the job as Head Hog, will also take OVs to Memphis (Oct. 4-6), Texas A&M (Oct. 11-13), Auburn (Nov. 1-3), and possibly Iowa State (originally set for Sept. 13-15, it may be rescheduled).

On Friday morning before Moore arrived for his OV in Fayetteville, his brother and West Memphis assistant coach Alvin Hawkins confirmed that Moore will sign his national letter of intent "early."

Arkansas coaches have made Moore a priority, taking on-campus and in-home visits with him in West Memphis on Sept. 9 -- the first day of the nearly six-month-long NCAA recruiting period -- before coming back last week to see him at practice again.

Moore talked more on Sunday about his weekend visit ...

On the presentation made by Musselman and his staff: "Coach Muss basically broke it all down. He told me stuff I didn't know about myself. He broke it down, from analytics to the way I can carry myself off the court to what goes on behind NBA draft rooms. I learned a lot from this visit."

On Razorbacks basketball practice on Saturday: "I love the way he ran practice, because it was like nobody was standing around. Everybody was moving, everybody was in tune. Everything came together on the court, it was amazing.

On whether or not he thought about committing to Arkansas during his visit: "No. I've still got to weigh my options. Arkansas was my first visit and I've got to look at other colleges. They're in my Top 3 for sure, so we'll see in November."

On his family's takeaways from the visit: "It was my brother and his wife, my nephew, and my Mom. They were all pleased. My Mom was intrigued with how Coach Musselman ran that whole official visit."

Moore had previously talked about that Sept. 9 in-home visit with Musselman and Hogs assistant coach Corey Williams.

"It went great," Moore said. "I heard some really good things. He (Musselman) was giving me a perspective that a lot of college coaches haven't given me. It kind of gave me a new thing to think about when it comes time to narrow my list."

Moore said he was particularly impressed with Musselman's vision for him at Arkansas.

"Yes it does," he acknowledged. "Meeting with the coaches gives me the feeling that they're really serious about me and want me to be a part of their program."

Moore was 17U Woodz Elite's leading scorer this spring and summer at more than 17 points per game, and he had a strong showing at the Nike Peach Jam in mid-July that included a 15-point, 19-rebound, 5-block performance during pool play -- a reminder of the double-double capability he brings to the floor every night. Including the the 13-game Nike EYBL circuit regular-season, Moore finished fourth in "box plus/minus" in the league.

"You know it helped me a lot," Moore said during an Aug. 3 interview when asked about playing on the Nike circuit. "Now I got to the see the best of the best in the whole world (of grassroots basketball), from each state and each big city.

Maybe it didn't take this staff that long to convince him this is place for him and this staff will get him to where he wants to go. I know he is a little undersized, but his work ethic, motor, and heart can't be beat.

6-6 is the cutoff line at the 4 but at that point, it's about toughness. Draymond is an example. PJ Tucker comes to mind as well and he is shorter than Chris.

Yep, poor Alonzo Lane at 6'5" had some of the best feet and post moves in the game. Unfortunately his height didn't allow him the ability to finish around the rim versus the taller/longer defenders in the paint he had to go up against.

It makes you wonder if he's been told by some coaches (not necessarily ours) that if you wait until the spring there may not be room.

Yeah, another 4-5 inches and Alonzo would have been great.
I was in hope that we would get a true center for this year, that with all the transfers and such, but no such luck. Now I'm hoping for next year.

Moore visited Arkansas in September, Memphis in October, and he just wrapped up an OV to Auburn (Nov. 1-3) ...

Do you know if a decision has been already made or have knowledge of what the decision is or if there is a strong lean a certain way?  I am not asking which school as I understand letting the player make it known, but I was curious if the decision had been made or if a deadline has just been established.

The first and biggest picture of Moore is him in that Arkansas uniform too.  I noticed someone had tweeted about the 1/2 picture size and the other two being 1/4 lol.

For those two to leave Arkansas and choose Auburn. Man, the state would highly frown up on it. I get choosing where you want to go but you would have to come back home twice a year to play your home state school that rolled out the carpet for you to attend. We will see I guess.

navyhog24:
We really need Williams. I wish he wasn't waiting until the spring.

Guess Moore just got a couple more crystal balls to Memphis overnight. That doesn't really go with him and Williams playing together. Thought both were all but gone to Auburn. Now, who knows?
