Penn State lands big man from Philly

Multiple sources reported over the weekend that 6-foot-9 power forward Julian Moore (Philadelphia/Germantown Academy) has committed to Penn State.

Moore chose the Nittany Lions over interest from James Madison, Virginia Commonwealth and Duquesne, among others. He joins guard Geno Thorpe (Pittsburgh, Pa./Shaler H.S.) in Penn State's 2013 class. Head coach Pat Chambers recently lost a commitment when ESPN 100 forward Brandon Austin (Philadelphia/Imhotep Charter) decided to open up his recruitment.
