Michael Moreno made his college decision known Thursday that he will take his talents to Richmond after coming off of a stellar high school career.

The senior forward averaged just shy of 15 points per game in 21 games this past season.

Moreno says that he is ready to do something special at EKU with Coach Hamilton.

"When he walked into my house for the final in home, he didn't even start with basketball, he just started talking with me about Keeneland this weekend for the Derby and school and stuff like that," Moreno said. "It just shows me that he has never really just cared about me as a basketball player, but as an individual, I know what he is going to do at EKU is going to be special and I just thought that it would be great to be a part of it and to have that opportunity."
