Moses Moody had been flying quietly under the radar in the class of 2020, but he has recently cemented himself as of the top prospects in an already top-heavy recruiting class.  The 6’5 G who plays for Parkview High School in Little Rock, Arkansas is matchup nightmare for defenses who have to face him.  

Moody began is ascent delivering high caliber efforts at the middle school level in the NY2LA Sports’ Generation Next Basketball Association a few years back.  He’s continued to grow and develop since and he’s firmly established as a high caliber 2020 prospect to pay close attention to this spring.  It seems that each game this past high school season he was able to get a little better in all aspects of his game and his debut at the NY2LA Swish N Dish showed firsthand that he’s a potential top 25-50 national prospect big picture wise in the 2020 class.

He possesses a unique ability to make plays on the court.  Whether it is coming off of screens and hitting jump shots, or putting the ball on the floor and blowing by defenders he seems to always know when it is time for him to make a play happen.  His strongest skill set thus far is his ability to shoot the basketball.  He may very well have the purest stroke of any player in the class of 2020 and his range almost unlimited.  His length and confidence give him the ability to get his shot off against any defender at the high school level and he can rack up large amounts of buckets in a short period of time.  He has been steadily improving his ball handling and has gotten a lot better in the open court finding teammates for transition buckets.  He stays in attack mode when he is off the ball and understands how to get open off screens and create situations for himself to get easy buckets.  Overall offensively for his age he is as polished of a player that is out there.

Defensively he plays the passing lanes very well in terms of getting steals and causing deflections.  He is sound on the ball and can keep his opponents in front of him.  He will need to add some bulk to his skinny frame which will come over time and help with defensive rebounding and positioning.  He can guard multiple positions on the floor and is great in situation where has to switch off and defend smaller and quicker guards.  Although the spring travel circuit has just got under way, he has already made a name for himself nationally and his stock is going to do nothing but rise once the live period gets under way.  

He currently holds offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Florida State, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma St while recently gaining strong interest from many other of the nation’s top programs.  Look for this list to only grow over the next few months as we get ramped up with the travel circuit.  Moses plays for Bradley Beal elite in the Nike EYBL circuit.
