Growling Tigers head coach Pido Jarencio promises growth for the Filipino-American player under his program, saying, “When he comes to college, his preparation will be faster, and his improvement will be faster because we have a complete program here.”

Moore expressed his excitement to play for the España-based squad as well as in a different league, saying, “I’m very excited. New basketball program, new area, new league… the UAAP. So, I’m very excited.

“I’ll do my best to bring the crown back to España.”
