Nittany Lion coach Patrick Chambers nabbed a 6-foot-9, 215-pound post prospect from the Philadelphia area.

Germantown (Pa.) Academy's Julian Moore loved everything about Penn State after prospect camp. The players, coaches, academics and facilities all fell in line with what the 6-foot-9, 215-pound center was looking for.

So it's no surprise that when the Class of 2013 prospect sat down with his family, they decided Penn State was the perfect fit to continue his academic and athletic career. With that, Moore became the second member of Penn State's 2013 class when he committed to the Nittany Lions' program Friday night.

“When I took a visit and attended prospect camp, I loved not only the school and facilities, but the coaches and players on the team, too, Moore said. “They have a winning mentality.

“They are some of the hardest working players, and they always keep a positive attitude,” he added

Outside of basketball, the academic side of Penn State hit home with Moore, too.

“As I found out more about the school, I found out it was an incredible academic school and had an amazing engineering program, and that excited me,” Moore said.

PSU coach Pat Chambers told Moore he sees him as a versatile player who can take opponents inside, but also blow by them on the perimeter. Moore said Chambers was thrilled to get the news of the commit.

“Coach Chambers was ecstatic to receive my phone call, and we both can't wait for me to be on campus,” Moore said. “I'm very excited to be a part of the Penn State family.”

Moore had offers from Duquense, Drexel, La Salle, Boston and Delaware, among others. But he is excited that the recruiting process is now finished.

“I'm glad that it's over and I found the best school for me,” Moore said.

Now, Moore plans to spend his time focusing on his senior season at Germantown.

“All of my energy is going to go toward winning our league title,” he said. “We return all five starters and are the favorite to win the league.”
