Moore chooses Milwaukee

Fifth-year senior Malcolm Moore will transfer to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for the 2013-14 season, sources told PantherU on Tuesday.

Moore takes one of two scholarships remaining for the 2013-14 campaign, and likely will step into a pivotal role in the post.

Moore graduated from UTEP this semester. Originally committed to Creighton out of high school, Moore did not qualify and spent two years in junior college before joining the Miners.

A 6’7″ 220 pound forward, Moore joins the post recruiting class of twins Brett and Alex Prahl and Matt Tiby. Moore will vie for post minutes behind JJ Panoske and Tiby.

Kaylon Williams, who is familiar with Moore from high school, said that “Malcolm will be a big help in turning things around from last year.” Moore is originally from Iowa City.

Milwaukee is still hot on the heels of Quevyn Winters, who could fill the starting shooting guard role for the Panthers as soon as he is eligible.
