Elijah Moore, a four-star shooting guard in the class of 2024, has narrowed his list of offers down to five schools: Alabama, Arkansas, Miami, Oklahoma State, and Syracuse.

The 6-foot-3, 170-pound prospect out of the Bronx (NY) Cardinal Hayes has taken official visits to Syracuse and Oklahoma State. Moore also plans to take an official visit to Alabama later this month, with the target date being January 24th. Nothing is set in stone yet.

In addition to the five schools listed among his top group, Moore also received offers from St. John’s, Illinois, Xavier, Seton Hall, UConn, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, and others.

Moore ranks as the No. 79 overall prospect in the On3 Consensus — the average ranking from all four major recruiting media companies (ESPN, 247Sports, Rivals, On3).

Elijah Moore breaks down his finalists

Alabama: “They just want to win and send kids to the pros. I want to be a pro. They talk to me about their belief in me and what I can do. I really love the school’s environment and can’t wait to get out there to see what’s up. Coach Bryan (Hodgson) is a cool guy who gives a certain energy that I can feed off.”

Arkansas: “The coaching staff is amazing. They all check on me constantly. Tell me about their games and show much love. They are sending players to the league and putting their players in a position to be successful which I love.”

Miami: “Miami has a great style of play. They let their guards play free and make their own decisions. Talked to coach plenty of times and they seem like really cool people. I want to visit but I got to see how it pans out.”

Oklahoma State: “Most of their coaches are from NY and they have really good energy. They have a family-oriented feeling and I like that. There isn’t much to do out there but get better and do what I have to do.”

Syracuse: “Syracuse feels great. I’ve been there twice and the experience was great. The coaches are really cool guys and they have that level of support and knowledge I can see myself playing with in two years.”
