DePaul’s Charlie Moore given NCAA waiver to be immediately eligible
Junior guard Charlie Moore has been granted an NCAA waiver to be immediately eligible at DePaul. The Chicago native returned home after attending Kansas from 2017-19.
“We are thrilled for Charlie and his family that he will be able to play immediately in his hometown,” said head coach Dave Leitao. “We appreciate the understanding of the NCAA staff for considering this request and the University of Kansas for their assistance through this process.”
Moore led the Blue Demons this summer on a 3-0
trip to France and Italy where he averaged 20.7 points per game while
shooting .563 (9-16) from three-point range and .846 (11-13) from the
free throw line. He also posted team highs of 13
assists and eight steals as the Blue Demons averaged 90.0 points per
game in the three European contests.
After earning Mr. Basketball honors at Chicago’s
Morgan Park, Moore played his freshman season at California. With the
Bears, he picked up Pac-12 All-Freshman honorable mention honors after
leading the team with 120 assists and averaging
12.2 points per game.
Moore transferred to Kansas and sat out the
2017-18 season under NCAA transfer guidelines. In 2018-19, he played in
35 games for the Jayhawks with averages of 2.9 points and 1.3 assists in
13.1 minutes per game.
The Blue Demons open the 2019-20 season on
Tuesday, Nov. 5 against Alcorn State. Overall, DePaul hosts 18 regular
season games at Wintrust Arena including 2019 NCAA runner up Texas Tech
on Dec. 4 and Northwestern on Dec. 21 before the
rugged BIG EAST schedule opens with back-to-back home games on Dec. 30
against Seton Hall and Jan. 4 against Providence.
