2020 Montverde Academy (Montverde, Florida) four-star shooting guard Moses Moody announced his commitment to the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday.
The festivities were held at the Arkansas Fitness and Athletics Center in Little Rock and Moody live streamed the announcement on his Instagram page.
Growing up in Arkansas’ backyard, Moody originally attended North Little Rock before transferring to Montverde for his final two seasons of high school eligibility.
One of the top-10 shooting guards in the cycle, Moody is the No. 42 player nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite.
An excellent off-the-catch and spot-up shooter, Moody held 25 reported offers but the Razorbacks, Michigan Wolverines and Virginia Cavaliers had separated themselves from the pack in his recruitment.
The 6-foot-5, 185-pounder took his official visit to Fayetteville on October 18 and the day left a lasting impression on his whole family.
“The coach, he’s different,” Moody’s father, Kareem, said of Eric Musselman in a positive manner.
“He brings a lot of things that haven’t been there before. Just a new energy around coaching and coaching style and play style, and getting prepared. There are a lot of things that those guys do to be prepared that I thought were really impressive and kind of out of the box in terms of things that I’ve seen before.”
Joining Jacksonville, Arkansas four-star point guard Davonte Davis, Moody gives Musselman a backcourt pairing to build around moving forward.
While Chad Morris’ football program continues to be a source of frustration, the 2019-20 Razorbacks basketball team - led by sophomore Isaiah Joe and junior Mason Jones - is off to a strong start.
Routing the Rice Owls, 91-43, in the season-opener on November 5, Arkansas will next be in action on Tuesday vs. North Texas (1-1) at Bud Walton Arena.
