Here's some recruiting news that I thought was interesting. Shun Williams (@OntheRadarHoops) of On the Radar Hoops tweeted earlier this week that 5 star 2018 recruit Khavon Moore (Macon, GA) will visit Alabama in June. Moore (6'8, 187 lbs, SF) is ranked 10th nationally by 247 Sports, and ranked number one in the state of Georgia.
Moore may be listed as a small forward, but to my eyes he's a point guard. Or "point forward", a hybrid position that has become more popular in recent years. In the video below you can see that Moore has great court vision. The "on-time, on-target" passes in the video below must excite Avery Johnson. But Moore also shows scoring ability in the video below and other videos I've watched of him. Avery is building a roster of players that can be called "positionless" due to their versatility. Moore certainly checks that box, and I'm excited that he's scheduled a visit for next month.
In other news: some details have been released regarding the team's trip to Canada in August. Two games will be played in Ottawa (August 9 and 10) against Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, with a third in Montreal (August 7) against McGill University.
This trip sounds awesome. In addition to seeing the team play three games in August, a trip to Ottawa and Montreal would be pretty sweet. Alas, I am economically challenged, and have little shot of making this trip (cue sad music now). If Bobby or DJC make the journey, you can expect full recaps here.
