New Scholarship Offers

It probably won't be long before John Groce offers a scholarship to every single point guard in the class of 2016. Morgan Park standout Charlie Moore was the latest recipient on Friday. The 5'10 guard isn't currently ranked by 247Sports' composite rankings, but he's had a fantastic Spring Nike EYBL session with the Mac Irvin Fire (15.4ppg, 4.4apg, 1.9spg, 45.7FG%). Moore also has offers from Iowa, St. John's, and Georgia Tech.
