PITTSBURGH - Duquesne University head men's basketball coach Ron Everhart has announced the signing of 6-9 forward Donovon Jack (Reading, Pa./Berks Catholic) and 6-3 combo guard Willie Moore (Cincinnati, Ohio/Aiken) to a National Letters of Intent.

"I'm really excited to add such quality young men to our program," said Everhart. "Willie is a high-motor guy who is a very good defender and a great passer. He'll impact our backcourt immediately.

"Donovon, like Willie, is a great athlete who plays extremely hard. He has the talent to play multiple positions which fits well with our style of play. He is as effective around the basket as he is on the perimeter and he'll be a great asset to our pressing defense. Both are great additions who will help us continue to elevate our program."

Jack, cited as the seventh-best player in Pennsylvania and 47th-best player in the East by ESPN.com, averaged 16.2 points and 9.8 rebounds per game while shooting 67.5 percent last season for Reading Central Catholic (which has since merged with other schools to form Berks Catholic). The left-handed forward helped Central Catholic to a second-straight District 3-A championship and third round of the PIAA playoffs in 2011. Jack had scholarship offers from 25 Division I schools including Temple, Saint Joseph's, Washington State, Minnesota and Clemson.

Moore, rated as the top wing guard and 11th-best player in Ohio by John Stovall's Prep Spotlight Ohio, averaged 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.9 steals per game for Cincinnati Aiken as a junior. The Cincinnati native chose Duquesne over Dayton and Cleveland State. He also received offers from a number of Mid-American Conference schools as well as Wichita State.
