Recruitment is picking up for Moore
Point guards are becoming increasingly hard to find, so when a good one is available coaches tend to make him a priority. That is going on right now with Chicago (Ill.) Morgan Park floor general Charlie Moore. He is having an excellent spring, and now he is seeing his recruitment get more crowded. “So far things are going well,” said Moore of the spring. “We are 5-3 in the EYBL. We are just starting to gel as a team, and I am trying to pick and choose my spots while limiting turnovers and doing everything I can to help my team win.” Some schools have been slow to pursue Moore because at only about 5-foot-9 he lacks the ideal size for the position, but more and more high-major schools are beginning to turn up the heat. “Iowa, Georgia Tech, Creighton, Illinois, California, Florida State, and Loyola have all been watching me pretty closely,” said Moore. The Iowa Hawkeyes have been extremely aggressive recently in their pursuit of Moore, and not only does he like the school and the coaches, but he plans on making a visit in the near future. “Iowa is a great program,” stated Moore. “Coach Fran (McCaffery) and Coach (Sherman) Dillard are great guys. They are very honest and tell me what I need to work on. It isn’t just them telling me how good I am. It is them being honest with me which I like.” While the Iowa visit is in the future, one trip he has already taken was to Georgia Tech. “Georgia Tech is a great program,” said Moore. “I took an unofficial visit there a few weeks ago and that was a great experience. It is downtown in Atlanta, so it is around everything and it was just a real good trip.” For now Moore is simply trying to get as much information as he can about the schools recruiting him. When the time does come to make a decision, he knows what he will be looking for in a school. “I am just looking for a place with a family atmosphere, and also a place where I have a great relationship with the coaches,” explained Moore.
