HAMMOND, Ind. & WESTVILLE, Ind. -- Purdue Northwest Men’s Basketball is proud to announce two final additions to its 2019 recruiting class. Kendall Moore and Jacob Stone will be freshmen this upcoming season.
“I chose PNW because I want to be a part of something special that is about to happen with the basketball program,” said Moore. “I believe the coaching staff and my teammates will provide a family environment. Graduating from Purdue Northwest will also benefit me off the court as well.”
Moore, a 5’11 point guard, comes from Belmont High School inDayton (OH), where he was the Dayton Public Schools Player of the Year last season. He was also named Second-Team Ohio All-Area after averaging 22 points and three steals per game.
“We’re excited to add Kendall to our basketball family," said Head Coach Boomer Roberts. "He loves the gym, enjoys competing, and is a tough kid who believes in himself and in the future of PNW Basketball. Our entire staff was impressed by his ability and his perseverance, and we believe he will make our program better from day one. Kendall comes from a good program and a great family, and is a strong student in the classroom.”
Stone comes to PNW from Midland (MI), where he averaged 12 points and seven rebounds per game as a junior at Dow High School before an injury cut his senior season short.
“It became clear pretty quickly in recruiting that Jacob was the type of guy we want in our basketball family,” said Roberts. “He is an elite student who is serious about getting his degree, and he wants to challenge himself as a player. Jacob missed most of his senior year of high school, so he is just scratching the surface of what he can be. He is a good athlete, can really shoot the rock, and gives us more depth on the front line. We’re excited about his future within our program.”
The pair now brings PNW’s 2019 recruiting class up to eight for the upcoming season.
