The Temple Owls landed their second commitment for the class of 2017 in three-star forward J.P. Moorman. Moorman hails from Greensboro, North Carolina and plays AAU ball with Team CP3.
Moorman is a 6-foot-7, 205 pound athlete who can play either forward position. His junior year at Greensboro Day, Moorman averaged 13.6 points and 7.7 rebounds on a team that reached the NCISAA Class 3-A semifinals. His sophomore season, Greensboro Day won the North Carolina class 3-A championship.
Moorman should find some time on the floor when he does arrive at Temple, as the Owls lost four seniors to graduation over this offseason and are slated to graduate four more next off-season.
In an interview with Greensboro.com, Moorman said about Temple, “I like the blue-collar environment, how the campus is smack-dab in the middle of Philadelphia. I feel like Philadelphia is a hard-working city and I want to go somewhere I can go to work everyday.”
No doubt Moorman has the right attitude to play in Philly.
