Classroom

Jalen Moore is on track to graduate in the spring with a degree in exercise science. He receives positive comments of being punctual and an active contributor in class from professors in progress reports.

Character

Moore has been a member of the team leadership council each of the past two seasons and is a two-year team captain. He is one of the first players requested for interviews by media outlets and is always gracious in those requests. Moore has, perhaps, one of the most recognizable hair styles in the NCAA. He is quick to recognize teammates for success and is a leader on the court through his own on-court production.

Community

More is an active participant in community service projects including basketball camps, working at local food pantries, reading to elementary school students and spending time doing crafts at a special-needs elementary school in the summer.

Competition

Moore is a two-time All-Mountain West honoree, earning second-team honors as a sophomore and third-team honors as a junior. He has led the Aggies in scoring and rebounding each of the last two seasons, averaging 15.2 points and 6.0 rebounds as a junior, and 15.2 points and 6.7 rebounds as a sophomore, and could become just the third player in Utah State history to lead the team in scoring and rebounding for three years, joining Greg Grant (1982-84, 1985-86) and Marvin Roberts (1968-71). Moore enters the season with 1,119 career points (No. 27 all-time in program history) and 54 blocks (No. 14 all-time). Moore is on pace to finish among the Utah State career record-holders in rebounds, assists, field goal attempts, 3-point field goals made and attempted, 10-point games, games played, games started and total minutes played. Moore was recently named to the watch list for the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year award and named a preseason All-Mountain West selection heading into the 2016-17 season.
