    SUWANEE, Ga. – With head coaches flocking around during the second live July period, Atlanta Xpress 7-footer Doral Moore put his game on full display, and has been relatively pleased with the results.

    “I feel like I’ve played really, really well [on] offense and defense. I feel like I’ve left a couple plays][on the floor],” Moore said at the Under Armour Association Finals.

    Moore has cut his list to five schools — Kentucky, Ohio State, Florida, Wake Forest, and Illinois.

    As for what the 7-footer is looking for when he does decide, Moore kept it simple.

    “The best situation for me, the best fit for me and my solid play, and what I want to major in,” Moore said. “I don’t want to limit my options.”

    His versatility and ability to step out and hit shots doesn’t make him a traditional center, and that’s something that schools like Ohio State have talked to him about.

    “They recruited me very, very hard,” Moore said of the Buckeyes. “They need a really good and big and to play the stretch four, and I fit that position.”

    Kentucky is also in the mix, although they have not offered.

    “They see my potential, they kind of see me like another Tim Duncan basically, probably a little more athletic,” Moore told SNY.tv.

    With a couple more events left this summer, the Atlanta Xpress star has his mind on the prize with big goals.

    “My goal for this tournament is to take over and win the whole thing,” Moore said. “Then go to USA tryouts with that same attitude and make the team.”
