Moore spent the 2013-14 period, the United States in Florida, where studied and played in the Victory Prep School in Rock (High School).He missed the season due to injury, a dozen, but on the whole, the time United States was rewarding. - Expenditure practice was certainly far from a college-level. All were treated very carefully, to prepare for college basketball. The aim was to grow as a player and the target was achieved, Moore says. He was offered a scholarship to the so-called Junior College-level, (NJCAA), as the Florida State College approached him. They want to recruit Moore for the upcoming 2014-15 season.
