Player: JJ Moore
AAU: Anthony Morrow Elite
High School: Lincoln Charter
Another player that was talked about a lot down in Rock Hill during the LIVE Period at the Phenom Grassroots TOC was 2023 5’11 JJ Moore with Anthony Morrow Elite. Moore is certainly a familiar name around North Carolina, but he continued to remind everyone of what he is capable of providing on the court. Helping his team to a 3-1 overall record while averaging 17.5 points, 5.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game, Moore really filled up the stat sheet all weekend long.
Moore is and has shown his ability to score the ball at a high rate. Whether it is using his speed and shiftiness to get downhill and finish through defenders or be a big threat with his jump shot outside, Moore can really mix it up. He is also a useful passer, finds ways to get his teammates the ball, and can turn his defense into offense quickly.
What Has Been Said:
“Though it is his first season at Lincoln Charter, JJ continues to show his ability to score the ball. Though he is one of the smaller guards, he simply understands what is needed with his speed, his ability to create, his shot-making from outside, and his ability to dissect defenses. He is shooting nearly 50 percent from the floor and 42 percent from three, averaging 20ppg.” – NC Top 80
“JJ Moore 5’10 averaged 20 pts, 5assist, 5 rebs and 6 steals this past year. All-Conference Selection and conference tournament MVP. He can play with any guard in 2023 and is just as good. Can score, shoot, and defend. Ultra-competitive.”
“Moore is a young guard that really needs to be taken seriously with his game. He started out a little slow but started to find his offense, using his incredibly quick speed and reaction to get by defenders and he displays a lot more athleticism than expected. Just has a terrific ability to create shots for himself and uses his quickness to his advantage. Also, a relentless motor.” – Game Report in 2021
“JJ Moore proved to be the clear difference-maker in their winning effort. After being extremely productive throughout the last calendar year, folks should already know about the smart, heady two-way guard. For those who don’t, Moore is tough and reliable with the ability to effectively run a team and/or operate as an efficient primary scorer. His IQ and leadership by example are evident through his approach on either end of the floor. Moore is slightly undersized, but it really doesn’t seem to matter in most cases. He’s quick, crafty, and possesses a strong balance between scoring and playmaking. Moore contains his assignment well defensively and understands how to involve himself in the rebounding battle whenever necessary. He displays nice pace to his game, both in transition and the half court, and can pile on points in a hurry. It should be common knowledge at this point, but Moore should be a priority for various types of scholarship-level programs.”
