Sky View High School’s Jalen Moore has committed to join the Utah State Aggie Basketball Program. The 6’7″ shooting guard completed his sophomore year of high school this year and is scheduled to join the Aggies for the 2013-14 season. Jalen is a current teammate of 2012 Aggie commit Casey Oliverson.
Moore recently attended the Stew Morrill basketball camp at Utah State and impressed the coaches enough for them to give him an offer. Jalen has also been turning some heads in AAU play putting up impressive numbers at a recent tournament in Reno, NV.
Jalen also competed in the high jump for Sky View and took second place in state behind only his fellow Bobcat, and good friend, Anthony Israelsen.
Jalen has Aggie blood in him as his father is former Aggie great Jimmy Moore. Jimmy, who was also known for his athleticism and leaping ability, can be found scattered throughout the Utah State record books. He is currently #25 All-Time in Scoring with 1164 points, #16 All-Time in Rebounding with 652 rebounds, #11 All-Time in Rebounds Per Game at 8.3/game, and #8 in Double-Doubles with 29. The Herald Journal’s Shawn Harrison wrote a nice piece on Jimmy in April of last year.
Jalen’s older brother Grayson Moore recently graduated from Sky View High and signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Sheridan College in Wyoming.
