Michigan offers four-star guard Moses Moody

Michigan extended a scholarship offer to four-star guard Moses Moody this afternoon.

Moody is a native of Little Rock, Arkansas, but he’ll play with Zeb Jackson this season at Montverde Academy in Florida. He’s a 6-foot-5 guard who is ranked 40th nationally, per 247 Sports Composite. He holds offers from Oregon, Arkansas, Ohio State, Florida, Alabama and others.

Moody is known for his impressive length at the guard spot, he averaged 16 points and four rebounds per game and made 32-of-114 3-pointers this summer on the Nike EYBL circuit.

The Wolverines are setting up for a massive fall recruiting period with five-star targets like Nimari Burnett and Walker Kessler already scheduling official visits. Moody is the latest prospect to draw interest from Juwan Howard and the initial goal will be to get him on campus for a visit.

    This feels like the first tier 2 (tier 1.5?) offer. I know a top 35-40 guy is still highly rated, but I have to wonder if this indicates anything moving behind the scenes with our top 20 offers on other guards. I hope that we move to get him on campus a bit after this first wave of recruits to start pushing for commitments one way or another.

    Also to consider: Moody was the USA Basketball event at the end of July where Michigan had coaches evaluating.

    Dumb question: is Zeb already playing and interacting with his Montverde teammates or not so much since school is only starting now? Just wondering if this may be a situation where Zeb is communicating that the coaches should pay a little more attention to this guy or something, similar to Brakefield.

    According to 247Sports’ Jerry Meyer, he sees Moody as a first-round talent with game comparable to Allen Crabbe at the next level.
    “Has length with an enormous wingspan for a wing. Smooth athlete but not an overly explosive athlete. High quality shooting is his greatest strength. Very good shooter off the catch. Dribble game and playmaking are improving. Has the size and anticipation to be a good defender. Solid rebounder. Length and shooting ability bode well for his future. Projects as a first-round draft choice.”

    In June, Moody’s game also stood out to Meyer during the Pangos All American Camp as well.
    “A 6-5 shooting guard, Moody came into this year’s circuit known primarily as a shooter, but he has expanded his skill set and is utilizing his athleticism at a much higher level this summer. Friday night at Pangos, he knocked down some shots but also attacked the rim with both explosive athleticism and also deft finesse. Moody also handled and passed well. Ranked in the top 40 of the 2020 class, he is making a strong push towards five-star status as a prospect.”
