After having a strong summer playing with the Illinois Wolves, Landon Moore has built upon that with Bloomington High School this winter during his junior season. The point guard is one of the better scorers in central Illinois, currently putting up 18.5 points per game. Scoring is not all he can do as he is also averaging 6 assists per game. 

Moore is an electric playmaking guard that can be very difficult to defend when he has the basketball. He is a skilled shot maker from the perimeter who can knock down threes in bunches. As well, the 6’1” junior is good going downhill with great acceleration and has nice vision when attacking the basket. While he has proven that he more than excels on the offensive side of the ball, one aspect of his game he is looking to improve is his on-ball defense.

With all of his talents, Moore has been able to attract the interest of a few division two programs. When talking about one of the schools in particular recruiting him, Moore mentioned “I talk to Emporia State often and one of their assistant coaches came to a game in December.” He is hoping to take a visit to the Emporia, Kansas campus for a game this season and expects to take a visit once his season is over. 

When talking about what he may want in his future college, Moore said “a place that feels like home where I’m very comfortable with the coaches. Also, a school that offers great academics. I would love to play in a system that spaces out and shoots the three a lot and gets up and down the court.”

While it has been a tremendous season for Moore, the same cannot be said about Bloomington as they sit at a 10-11 record currently. However, Moore is still very optimistic and quick to point out that they still have a chance to win their conference. Not only is Moore looking to win their conference this season, but would also like to claim a regional title in the Illinois state playoffs. 

There are a few different NBA guards that Moore looks to when modeling his game; Chris Paul, Steph Curry, and Trae Young. “I like them because they are all smaller point guards that don’t let their size be a disadvantage.
