Analysis: Morgan Park (Ill.) Point Guard Charlie Moore Commits to Cal

What does Charlie Moore's commitment mean for Cal? Morgan Park (Ill.) point guard Charlie Moore has committed to California, capping off quite a spring for the Bears.

Pac-12 All-Freshman Team member Ivan Rabb, projected to go in the top half of the first round of the NBA Draft, decided to stay in Berkeley for his sophomore season, Cal hauled in Grant Mullins, a point guard graduate transfer from Columbia, and now, they have added a true dual-threat point to the duo of Mullins and senior Sam Singer.

Moore, Illinois' Mr. Basketball this past season, projects as a multi-year starter, and though he won't have to start right away, he certainly could, and very well might. Moore can be electric, and he gives the Bears another high-level scoring option, and he can certainly play alongside Mullins, with Mullins playing off the ball.

Moore felt very comfortable with the Cal staff from the start, and in the end, he was the one to seek out the Bears in recent days, and tell them he wanted to come West. 

Our Evan Daniels said: "Charlie Moore is one of the toughest and most productive point guards in the 2016 class.

"He is a huge addition for California and head coach Cuonzo Martin. Moore is a high level scorer from the point guard position, but he also is someone who can get others involved and will be a pest on defense.

"His competitiveness and makeup are off the charts, and is someone who just knows how to win. Moore is somebody who had a ton of interest from local schools, and being able to pull him out of the Midwest is a big win for Martin and the Bears."
