Moore was a First Team All-State, First Team All-District and a First Team All-Conference selection in his final season at Worthington Christian. Moore was named the District 10 Player of the Year and the MSL-Ohio Player of the Year as he led Worthington Christian to the Division III State Championship game this past season.

Coach McKay Quote: "We are very excited to have DJ Moore sign and be a part of our family. In the COVID recruiting era, it is a little different and very hard to evaluate on a computer screen whether or not an individual is the right fit for our particular program. The things that are easier to evaluate is his impact on winning, which is grand. DJ came from a really good high school program, was very well-coached and a good AAU program. We tell our point guards that you are usually measured by how much you influence winning and by how much you make other people around you better and boy DJ is one of those guys. Anxious for him to get here and really excited about his future."
