Moore has been coveted by the Tar Heels for some time now. He's had an offer from the school since February 2016 when he was just a freshman in high school. Since then, he has made several unofficial visits to campus.

The 6-5, 210 pound small forward ranks as the best player in the state of North Carolina, the third best at his position, and the 18th overall player in the class of 2019, according to ESPN.
Before he visits UNC, Moore will visit N.C. State, South Carolina, Wake Forest and Duke in the month of September.
So far, the Tar Heels only have one player in their class of 2019; 4-star point guard Jeremiah Francis. They've also extended offers to James Wiseman, Vernon Carey Jr. and Matthew Hurt, all of whom are top 10 players in the country.
