A 6-foot-9, 210-pound frontcourt player, Moore didn’t play this season for BYU. He was a redshirt prospect early in his freshman season.
During training camp last October, Moore was switched from being a wing player to playing the five. It was a big transition for Moore, who never played that position during his prep career.
Moore signed with BYU after a year at Kanye West’s Donda Academy. The Donda Academy squad that Moore was part of graced the cover of SLAM magazine.
Before enrolling at the Donda Academy, Moore prepped at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, Tennessee.
With Braeden Moore now in the portal, BYU has two scholarships available for the 2023-24 season. The Cougars had two graduating seniors from last year’s team in Gideon George and Rudi Williams, but one of those scholarships will be occupied by returning missionary Jake Wahlin.
