Who is Charlie Moore? He is one of the nation’s most patient guards and a blue chip recruit. Moore, who attends Morgan Park High school and is a member of Mac Irvin Fire aau team, has placed more fuel in the intense talk of his recruiting journey. Moore faced off against some of the world’s best talent at the Nike Global Challenge hosted by Nike EYB. Everyone in attendance shook their head in approval as Moore, a poised guard, held his composure while his team faced an early 18 point deficit to the USA West team. Moore helped his Midwest team fight their way back into the game and grab a temporary lead, making the game an intense battle up to the end. Just one instance of many that Moore proves to be a patient and very knowledgeable guard. What makes him patient is his high level court vision. As you watch him bring the ball up the court, it’s as if he has predetermined where the defense will be and Moore reacts with boxer like reflects and either scores or gets the valued assist. Charlie Moore demonstrates the importance and value of knowing the game of basketball and not just showing up to do what he is told. His knowledge of the game exceeds what you would expect for even a five star recruit of his ability and would make his value to any college program more significant. Most recruits come into the college system with a very skewed comprehension of the game. More importantly Moore is a coach’s dream because he gives the offense a chance to work and makes quick assessments with a calmness comparable to the legendary guards from the University of Arizona. It is not a long shot at all to say that Moore’s vision and court knowledge measures up to what Mike Bibby or Jerryd Bayless had at this point in their great careers. While the mad scramble for college offers takes place around the nation, this class of 2016 guard is as relaxed as his mild expression shows. Top guard status…check. Division one offers….check. Next move for Charlie Moore…stay tuned.
