Moran on why he chose Utah:

"I chose Utah because I felt at home while there on my visit. Salt Lake City is beautiful. The people are friendly, and the players and coaches are all good guys. The resources for the athletes are numerous, and the team shows a commitment to excellence. Also, being raised in Arizona, I was excited by the opportunity of experiencing four seasons. I can't wait to be a Ute."

Mountain View High School Coach Mike Thiel on Moran:

"Spencer has a great attitude and work ethic. Spencer cares about his teammates and encourages them on a regular basis. He puts the team success above his individual accomplishments. He is always looking to improve. He shows great work ethic on the field and in the weight room. Spencer also has a lot of talent. His velocity continues to climb and he has a very good 'feel' for pitching. He commands all four pitches very well. He does a great job holding runners and fielding his position. Spencer is also a good hitter and very good defensively at both corner infield positions."
