IU Coach Archie Miller has now convinced all three members of the 2017 IU basketball recruiting class to come to Bloomington next season.
Four-star forward Clifton Moore, out of Hatboro, Pennsylvania, reaffirmed his commitment to play at IU on Sunday afternoon, as first reported by Brian Snow of scout.com. The 6-foot-10, 202-pound Moore requested a release from his National Letter of Intent last month after the firing of former IU Coach Tom Crean.
Miller made in-home visits with all three recruits in the class of 2017 last week, and after getting guard Al Durham to re-commit and forward Justin Smith to stay, Miller now has Moore as well.
Moore originally committed to IU in early October after being recruited by former IU assistant coach Chuck Martin in the summer. Moore flew under the radar, and when Crean offered him a scholarship in late September, he only had offers from three other major conference schools.
However, after his senior season of high school basketball Moore was no longer a sleeper. He could have restarted his college search 30 days after he requested his release from his NLI, but he elected to stay with IU.
Shooting and versatility are Moore’s strengths on the court, and he should contribute as a stretch forward for the Hoosiers next season.
