Saint Louis University has reeled in its first member of the 2016 men’s basketball recruiting class, and he’s a local product.
Zeke Moore, a 6-4 Small Forward from Riverview Gardens, announced his verbal pledge via Instagram on Friday.
According to Rivals, Moore had offers from Drake, UMKC, Illinois State, Indiana State and Northern Illinois, among others.
Moore told STL Preps that the decision was easy, even as he sensed other larger programs were starting to get interested. The school, he said, was there from the very beginning of his recruitment, and know he’s “proud to say” he’s a Billiken.
“I just felt that Saint Louis U is where I wanted to be. Why go play somewhere else and your hometown needs your service?
