Colorado College's prize recruit, defenseman John Moore is still not 100% certain he is coming to the Springs next season, despite what the Springs fishwrap would have you believe. According to our friends at "Coming Down the Pipe," Moore has not made any kind of firm commitment to Colorado College nor to the Kitchener Rangers.
Sure he's signed a letter of intent to attend CC, but that only assures that he won't attend another NCAA school. It sounds like it will be a nervous summer for Scotty & the Merry Band of Chokers.
Earlier this week the Colorado Springs Gazette noted that Moore was definitely coming to Colorado College this Fall. Apparently the drama continues.
Defenseman John Moore, CC’s prized recruit and projected by many to be a first-round pick in the NHL draft later this month, has fielded plenty of calls from junior teams wanting his services. Once again, however, Moore expressed that he is definitely coming to CC in the fall.
“They’re calling my house, but I’m really happy with CC,” said Moore, who has maintained all year that he plans to attend college in the fall.
Moore said when he was at the NHL combine last week, teams told him how he could grow as a hockey player and a person at Colorado College. He said he likes the fact that he can get a great education while playing Division I hockey.
“To me, it’s kind of a no-brainer,” Moore said. “It’s the best of both worlds and I can’t wait to get out there.”
