Charlie Moore and Sam Cunliffe Talk Sitting Out; Adapting to KU

Charlie Moore Kansas

Charlie Moore, the 5-foot-11 sophomore transfer guard from Kansas spoke with D1VISION contributor Neal Schnoor on Friday about having to sit out the upcoming season due to transfer rules. Moore transferred from California earlier this year.

“I’ve talked to other guys that have transferred and they just said, ‘keep working hard, stay in the gym, and just pray’, so I’ve been doing that and sticking to it,” said Moore. “I’m not antsy. I try not to get antsy until next year.”

Sitting out this season, Moore is making it a priority to work on his game and being more of a leader, as he said, “Just me taking care of the ball, talking more to my teammates, and being more vocal on the court. I think those are key aspects for me to becoming a better player next year.”

Last season, as a freshman at California, Moore averaged 14.5 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game, in 20 games played. When Moore becomes eligible to play next season, he will be joined by Arizona State transfer Sam Cunliffe, who will be eligible in the spring semester of the 2017-18 season.

Cunliffe, who transferred from Arizona State in January, spoke with D1VISION contributor Neal Schnoor on Friday about the difference between ASU and KU.

“It’s really team-oriented. This team wins, and you got to have a team to win. At Arizona State, we had team chemistry but I think it was more about certain guys. Here it’s not about how we win, but it’s about getting it done.”

Cunliffe also spoke about how he’s worked on his game over the past few months to improve his game, as he said, “I’m just learning how to play without the ball. Coach [Bill Self] really harps on that, doing things to help the team win. I’ve obviously always had the ball in my hands growing up. I think everyone here has. If you’re here, you were the best player somewhere growing up. So, I’m just trying to figure out how to bring my game in for the team and help the team out, not just doing things for myself.”

On Friday, Kansas landed 2018 point guard Devon Dotson, giving them the No. 3 ranked recruiting class in 2018.
