Moses Moody is one of Juwan Howard’s top remaining recruiting targets on the board and it appears the elite guard’s decision is coming sooner rather than later. Moody took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to announce his commitment date, which is set for Saturday night at 7 p.m. ET in his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas.
Moody’s final three schools are Michigan, Virginia and Arkansas, the latter of which is considered the be the overwhelming favorite for his services. Four of the five Crystal Ball picks on 247Sports are sending him to the Razorbacks.

Moody is a four-star prospect and the eighth-ranked shooting guard in the 2020 class, per the 247 Composite rankings. Below is the scouting report on him from Jerry Meyer.
“Has length with an enormous wingspan for a wing. Smooth athlete but not an overly explosive athlete. High quality shooting is his greatest strength. Very good shooter off the catch. Dribble game and playmaking are improving. Has the size and anticipation to be a good defender. Solid rebounder. Length and shooting ability bode well for his future. Projects as a first-round draft choice.”
Howard let slip on Monday that Moody is one of his top targets, which he actually isn’t allowed to do and could be a minor NCAA violation. We covered that here yesterday.
“It’s been good. We’re still grinding, plugging away. There are some guys out there who we’ve offered to that we’re in the running (for). Hunter Dickinson is one, Moses Moody is the other. Nimari Burnett …,” Howard said, before realizing his mistake and cutting himself off.
Michigan currently has two players committed to the 2020 class in point guard Zeb Jackson and five-star forward Isaiah Todd.
