2015 JUCO guard Lee Moore has committed to UTEP per Twitter reports Sunday night.
Moore will be a sophomore this season at Wallace State where he averaged 18 points, and 7.2 rebounds last year.
He had an official visit here to UTEP on September 26th and was supposed to visit Middle Tennessee on October 17th. Clemson and NC State from the ACC are also having serious looks at him.
2015 Wallace St CC 6'4 combo G Lee Moore verbally commits to UTEP #MinerStrong

The 6'4 active combo guard from the Atlanta area is a super athlete with true scorer attributes who can slash and finish around the rim including a big time jumper from the perimeter with NBA range.
He is among some top D-1 prospects that return for a Wallace State team that won 28 games a year ago in which Moore was a key player in their NJCAA tournament run and for most of last season.
Moore was named First Team All-ACCC North Division, First Team All-Region XXII and Conference Tournament MVP last season, and also came up with some huge defensive plays in their tournament win with his instinctive style of ball hawking on defense.
The class of 2015 is filling up quickly with the signing period starting on November 12th. Moore joins Paul Thomas, and Christian Romine as the first three 2015 commitments with four available scholarships for 2015.
Left on the MinerRush 2015 big board is Crag Randall III who is playing his final year of high school in Phoenix, Arizona.
Randall is a 6'3 point guard who is a Rivals Three-Star prospect, and was considered one of the best guards in the Midwest before he moved to Arizona this school year. ESPN also has him as a three-star prospect.
The athletic and ultra quick lefty holds an offer from a number of mid-majors in the Midwest, including C-USA mate LA Tech and Minnesota from the Big Ten, although he has very high interest in UTEP.
