LAWRENCE, Kan. (KWCH) -- Charlie Moore will be transferring from KU, the school announced Saturday.

Bill Self released a statement:

“Charlie notified me yesterday (Friday) that he wanted to transfer and be closer to his family,” Self said of Moore who is from Chicago. “We appreciate Charlie’s time here at KU and wish him the absolute best moving forward.”

The move is expected after the redshirt-sophomore averaged only 13.1 minutes per game, and struggling to score more than an average of 2.9 points per game.

Moore transferred to Kansas after a stellar year at the University of California, averaging 28.8 minutes per game, and tallying 12.2 points per game as a true freshman.

The scholarship vacated by Moore leaves one open scholarship for the 2019-2020 season.
