Second former Drake commit to join Niko Medved at CSU

For the second time this month, Niko Medved’s recruiting trail has followed him to Colorado State. Kendle Moore, a point guard and former Drake commit from Danville, Illinois, switched his commitment to CSU Tuesday morning.

A 5-foot-10, 160-pound point guard, Moore led the Danville Vikings to a 26-3 record, conference titles and appearance in the regional final during his senior season. He averaged 21 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.9 steals on the year, being named the Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference Player of the Year.


Moore’s numbers during his junior season mirrored those of his senior year, averaging north of 21 points, 3 assists and 2 steals per game. He finished his high school career as Danville’s all-time leading scorer. He also earned AP first-team all-state honors during his senior season.

Moore committed to Drake in September 2017 before reopening his recruitment on April 9, citing the coaching staff’s departure as his reasoning. According to Prep Hoops Illinois’ final rankings, Moore is the No. 7 overall player in the state of Illinois and No. 1 point guard.

He is the second former Drake commit to follow Niko Medved and the rest of the coaching staff to CSU. Golden native and Colorado standout Adam Thistlewood announced his commitment to CSU in early April after committing to Drake last September.

Messiah Jones, a three-star forward from Simeon High School in Chicago, Illinois, decommitted from Drake the day Medved joined CSU and has yet to sign with a school.
