NORTH AUGUSTA, SC — After cutting his list to five schools, Wendell Moore has now set official visits to all five.

The 6-foot-6 wing from Charlotte (NC) Cox Mill slated his final official for North Carolina.

"I scheduled the last one to North Carolina for 'Late Night With Roy' October 12-14," he said Thursday at Peach Jam, where he's playing with Team CP3.

Moore had already set up visits to N.C. State on September 1, South Carolina on September 8, Duke on September 22, and Wake Forest on September 28, according to Rivals.

Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, Wake Forest's Danny Manning, N.C. State's Kevin Keatts, and South Carolina's Frank Martin all watched Moore on Thursday morning, while North Carolina coach Roy Williams is also here.

Duke and South Carolina also watched Moore when he won the gold medal with the USA U17 team in Argentina last week. He averaged 8.4 points and 3.0 rebounds during the FIBA U17 World Championship.

"It was a great experience, just being able to play with all the guys," he said. "Just coming out with a gold medal."

As for a timeline on his college decision, he said: "I'm aiming to make [a decision] early fall, but definitely before high school season is over."

All five schools remain in contact with Moore "every day."

"I'm trying to take my time with it and pick a school where I can fit in," he said. "Those five schools know me so we talk a lot about who they're recruiting and how they're going to use me."

Moore is also in touch with several fellow class of 2019 stars who are being recruited by some of the same schools, including big men Vernon Carey Jr. and Isaiah Stewart. Carey is down to Duke, Kentucky, Miami, Michigan State, and North Carolina, while Stewart's list of 10 includes Duke, Georgetown, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Villanova, Michigan State, Indiana, Texas, Louisville, and Washington.

"I talk to everybody," he said.

Moore said he briefly considered transferring to Oak Hill Academy (VA) or another powerhouse for his senior year but opted to stay at Cox Mill.

"It was in my thought process but in the end I decided to stay," he said.
