As Robert Morris tries to rebuild its roster and load up in the front court, on Tuesday, the Colonials hosted a player that would help with that need.
2022 forward Pete Moe II (6’9, 210), from Iowa City, Iowa, was on campus for an unofficial visit. Back on February 2, Moe received his first division one offer from Andy Toole and Robert Morris.
“I played in a showcase tournament in Quincy, Illinois in late January and I had a pretty good game, 25 points and 13 rebounds, and one of their assistants saw me and told Coach Toole about me,” said Moe. “Coach Toole then contacted me and then Coach Fedor (RMU assistant) came out to Iowa City to watch me practice and that’s when they offered me.”
“Robert Morris likes my versatility and like that I can shoot from three, I can drive to the basket, can handle the ball and they like how hard I work and that I show that I want to get better.”
Because of the relationship that he had developed with the Colonials staff and the interest they have shown in him, Moe made the decision to make his first trip to Pittsburgh for his unofficial visit and is glad he did.
”Something that stood out to me is how much the Robert Morris staff cares for you and how they want you to become the best player that you can possibly be,” said Moe. “I felt a real family like atmosphere there. I really liked that about them and I really believe they can help me become the best player that I can be.”

”My talks with Coach Toole went really well and he seems like a great guy. I like him as a person and I would like him as a coach. He told me that he really wants me to come because of how hard I work and that he can tell I really want to get better. He loves my versatility and said that he can really see me playing there.”

Moe tells PSN he would like to make a decision before the end of May.
“I’m trying to take things slow because all this recruiting is really new to me. This is obviously a big decision and I want to take things slow. I did have a lot of fun at Robert Morris, I enjoyed the coaches but I’m taking things one day at a time.”
