Molloorry Del Priore
Archbishop Molloy High School senior center Moses Brown is one of the most sought-after basketball players in the country. The five-star college recruit is on the radar of several top Division I colleges in the country.
In fact, a college coach from Georgetown University was in attendance to speak to Brown after the Stanners’ 73-47 win over St. Francis Prep Friday night at home on alumni night.
The seven-foot-one student-athlete also has Florida State, Maryland and UCLA vying for his hardwood services, according to Molloy Boys’ Varsity Head Coach Michael McCleary.
But the 18-year-old Queens Village, New York, native is taking all the attention in stride, and said, “I’m going to make a decision real soon,” regarding the college recruited process
Brown was unstoppable in Molloy’s rout, draining a game-high 33 points, but he doesn’t have to score in order to be effective, according to McCleary.
“He can score, that’s why we have to make sure we feed the monster,” McCleary said. “He likes scoring, but he’s great on the backboards, he’s great in the middle, and a good teammate; we’re lucky to have him.”
In addition to lighting up the scoreboard, Brown rejected several shots, disrupted countless plays in the paint, and rebounded as if his life depending on it, with the game pretty much already decided.
That type of relentless effort will serve Brown well in his future, as colleges are taking notice of his stellar basketball prowess. Let’s wait and see.
