Four-star junior Braeden Moore plans visit to Nebraska, talks recruitment

April 22, 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several guys lost out on an opportunity to showcase their talents on the AAU circuit or at camps as many things were canceled. One guy who has flown under-the-radar and is watching his recruitment pick up is Christ Presbyterian Academy’s (TN) junior Braeden Moore.

We interviewed Moore here at on December 8th and his college offers were limited and now he’s fully taken off. He averaged 21 points per game along with ten rebounds this past season at CBA. Moore has made major leaps on the court and it has led him to land scholarship offers from nearly 15+ programs in the last month and a half.

The 6-foot-8 prospect, originally from the West Coast, has been quite the prospect in the 2022 class and displays his ability to score at several levels, get to the rim, make plays, and with his length, he has become a capable defender of multiple positions.

Looking at when we talked in December till now, it’s not surprising that he’s gained this much traction and has turned himself into a high-major recruit. Now, Moore discussed the busy recruitment he has with which includes his first planned official visit.

Which programs would you say are the most heavily involved?

“Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Missouri, TCU, Memphis, Nebraska, SMU, Rice, Georgia Tech, and Arkansas.”

Who are the newer schools to enter the mix?

“USC, Northwestern, Virginia.”

What are your thoughts on the Wisconsin Badgers?

“I really align with their style of play and love their culture and staff. I hear they have great support for their program and the players that are a part of it.”

How about a program like Notre Dame?

“I have been consistently engaged with them and hear great things about their program and really like their staff. I believe I would fit well in their program.”

And finally, what about Missouri?

“My contact with them is constant and I have a lot of family members that are alumni of the program that live in MO. I like that they are in the SEC and the coaching staff is great.”

Now, do you have any plans for official visits with the dead period lifting in June?

“Nebraska is set, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, plus a few more. Hope to visit as many as I can as soon as possible.”

When is the Nebraska official visit?

“June 18-20.”
