The high 3-star was the final holdout from Indiana’s 2017 class, and all three are returning to Bloomington.

Archie Miller’s perfect game continues into the late innings, according to Brian Snow of Scout.com / Peegs:

The 3-star forward out of Horsham, Pennsylvania is a 140th nationally and 35th at the power forward position, but his recruitment caught fire late, as he flew under the radar for much of his high school career.

New head coach Archie Miller has now secured commitments to play next year from Collin Hartman, Al Durham, Justin Smith, and Moore, all four of whom were considering not playing for the Hoosiers next season.

Moore brings some much needed post depth for a team that could very well be weathering the departure of Thomas Bryant to the NBA, leaving them with De’Ron Davis and Tim Priller as the extent of their depth chart down low. While he may not be in line for a huge role in Year 1, he gives the Hoosiers an excellent foundational piece to solidify them down low in the future.
