Former Kansas guard Charlie Moore is transferring from DePaul to Miami (Fla.), his fourth school, for his final year of eligibility.

Thanks to the NCAA's newly passed one-time transfer exemption rule, Moore will be eligible to play right away.

The 5-foot-11 Chicago native averaged 15.5 points and 6.1 assists in 32 games for DePaul in 2019-20, and 14.4 points and 4.2 assists in 16 games this past season.

He started 34 games as a freshman at California during the 2016-17 season and played as a reserve at KU in 2018-19 after sitting out the 2017-18 season following his transfer.

During his one season of eligibility with the Jayhawks, Moore appeared in 35 games, with one start, while averaging 2.9 points per game in 13 minutes.

Moore left KU to be closer to his hometown following the 2018-19 season and played the past two seasons as a key member of DePaul's roster, starting all but one of his 48 games with the Blue Demons.

Dave Leitao was fired as DePaul’s coach after last season, and Moore left Cal after a coaching change there, as well.

Moore provides a much-needed reinforcement for the Hurricanes, who since the end of the season have lost three players via the NCAA’s new transfer rule.

Departing Miami since the end of the season via transfer have been Chris Lykes to Arkansas, Earl Timberlake to Memphis and Elijah Olaniyi to Stony Brook. Two other players, Isaiah Wong and Kameron McGusty, decided to enter the NBA draft with the option to return to Miami.

sounds like not only is he taking advantage of the one time transfer rule exemption, he's also taking advantage of the one time extra eligibility season exemption.

he played one season at Cal, sat one and then played one at KU, played 2 at DePaul, and will play one at Miami. That would be six years and 5 seasons of eligibility.

I am wondering if there will be any players coming back for their extra year of eligibility who might have a shot at setting any kind of NCAA all-time career records.

And I wonder whether any records they set will be accompanied with an asterisk.

I admit to chuckling when I read the headline. Less so after reading the article. Glad he had a chance to play and succeed, and play some more. Nice place to finish.

It does sound like he played two good seasons at DePaul, then the coach was fired... circumstances as they were he has an extra season of eligibility and a chance to say "I'm taking my talents to south beach"

When he transfers, does he take the Benny Hill music with him?

Is this the guy I see on the side of U-Haul moving trucks?

Charlie made Dicky V's "all Randy Newman Team".

Next year he will make Dicky V's "all Marco Polo Team".
