BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Luke Moyer, a 6-foot, 170-pound guard from Souderton, Pa., has signed an athletics grant-in-aid with Campbell University, head men's basketball coach Kevin McGeehan announced on Wednesday.

A former all-conference performer at Souderton Area High School, Moyer spent last year at the University of Richmond.  He has enrolled in summer school at Campbell and will be eligible to play this fall.

Moyer is the fourth newcomer to join the Fighting Camel program since McGeehan was named head coach in April.  Guards Quinton Day of Angier, N.C., and Kyre' Hamer of Stone Mountain, Ga., signed with the Camels, while forward Rod Days from Miami Gardens, Fla., transferred from UCF.

"Luke has a chance to be a very good player for us," said McGeehan, who served the previous eight years on the staff at Richmond.  "His year of weight training, practicing and learning at Richmond will be a huge asset as he begins his career at Campbell.  We are excited to add him to the program. "

In his freshman year at Richmond, Moyer saw action in four games for the Spiders, who finished 19-15 overall and advanced to the CBI quarterfinals.  He grabbed two rebounds and dealt an assist in a win over UNC Wilmington, while also dishing assists in victories over Air Force and Fordham.

He averaged 15 points and 3.5 assists per game as a senior at Souderton Area High School in 2012, shooting 52 percent from 3-point distance and 83 percent from the foul line.  Moyer was named first-team Suburban One Conference and first-team All-Intell, while also earning Philadelphia News Southeastern PA top scorer and 3-point leader recognition.

Moyer joins a Fighting Camel program that has called the 3095-seat Gore Arena inside the Pope Convocation Center home since November 2008.  Over the last five years, the Camels have amassed a 48-24 (.667) record at the facility. 

Campbell returns seven of its top 10 scorers and rebounders from 2012-13, when the Camels finished 13-20 overall and third in the Big South Conference North Division (7-9).
