Now that he’s finished his AAU season, Charlie will begin visiting some of the schools showing him interest.

Georgia Tech is one of the schools that Charlie visited in the spring. “They offered me at the end of my high school season and with them being in in Atlanta and me being a Chicago guy, I wanted to see the school.” Moore was impressed with the school and the facilities.

Charlie also took notice of the guards that have played at Tech. “All the guards that have played in their program made my eyes light up.” The visit went better than expected for Moore and moved Tech into his recruiting picture. “I love the program and the coaching staff.”

Since the visit Moore has kept in touch with Coach Brian Gregory and Coach Mamadou N’Diaye. “Both of them told me they love my aggressive play.” Moore feels he has established a good relationship with both coaches. Moore will now be meeting with his coaches and parents to start trimming his list of offers and begin taking visits. Tech will be one of the schools that Moore hopes to visit. “I want to sign in the early signing period so I can concentrate on my senior season.”

Recent offers from California and Virginia Commonwealth brings Charlie’s offer total to 13 schools. “I’m nearing the point where I want to get to a top five. This will be the hardest part of the recruiting process.” Now that he is getting closer to making a decision, Charlie will be looking at several factors to help him make that decision. Charlie will be taking a close look at his and his family’s relationship with the coaches. “I want all of us to be comfortable with each other.” Charlie will also be looking for a school where he can make an early impact.

The school that receives Moore’s verbal will be getting a point guard that can get his teammates involved in the game as well as getting a player that can put points on the board. Top Stories
