Willie Moore Signs with Duquesne

Moore with Aiken head coach Leon Ellison
Today was a busy day for college and high school coaches across America as it was the first day of the fall signing period for Division I schools. Over 30 players across Ohio are currently committed to Division I schools with most planning to sign their National Letter of Intent during the one week fall period. 

While two Cincinnati prospects are committed to Division I schools as of press time CPHR had only received word of one of them signing. Moeller C Tony Sabato is expected to sign with Elon this week; while Aiken SG Willie Moore, Triple Double Prospects top ranked SG in Ohio in 2012, signed his LOI with Duquesne out of the Atlantic 10. 

In a signing day ceremony at the school Aiken coach Leon Ellison expressed how proud he was of Willie both on and off the court, and particularly in the classroom as his dream is coming to fruition; to play Division I college basketball. Moore says he is ready for the challenge and looking forward to his time in Pittsburgh playing with the Dukes. 

More photos from the ceremony are available on CPHR's Twitter (@CincyPrepHoops) and Facebook (search Cincy Prep Hoops Report) pages.

Former Cincinnati high school stars Aaron Thomas and Semaj Christon also signed letters of intent today. Christon, a '11 graduate of Winton Woods, signed with Xavier where he is being billed as the impact PG of the future to replace Tu Holloway. Thomas, a scoring wing and '11 graduate of Withrow, sent his signature to Florida State; where he has been committed since fall of his senior year of Withrow last school year.
