Charlie Moore

California transfer Charlie Moore is headed to Kansas

Kansas picked up another significant transfer on Tuesday. After adding KJ and Dedric Lawson two weeks ago, the Jayhawks have added California transfer Charlie Moore.

California transfer Charlie Moore just verbally committed to Bill Self, he tells Scout.

"I'm going to attend Kansas," Moore said. "I just thought it was the best decison for me. It's closer to home and it's a winning program and the coaches were good to me."

Moore, a native of Chicago (Ill.) and a former standout at Morgan Park, chose the Jayhawks over Illinois and interest from a host of other schools. 

"Just the opportunity," he said when pressed on his decision. "The winning program and just getting the chance to win every year. The coaches, I formed a great relationship with those guys. They were just straight up and honest with me. It made it an easy decision."

As a freshman at California, Moore averaged 12.2 points and 3.5 assists in 28.8 minutes a game. Moore made 45 three-pointers and shot 35.2-percent from three on the season.

"I bring toughness to the team," Moore said. "I'm a ball handler that makes good decisions and a scorer at times when needed."

This is the third transfer addition for Kansas in the past two weeks. Kansas added Memphis transfers and brothers KJ and Dedric Lawson two weeks ago. 

Barring a waiver, per NCAA rules, Moore will be forced to sit out one season, before having three years of eligibility. 

Moore chose to leave the Bears shortly after Cal head coach Cuonzo Martin opted to leave the school for Missouri.
