Report: Mike Moser may transfer to UW
Jeff Goodman at CBSsports.com is reporting UNLV junior forward Mike Moser is thinking about transferring to Washington. According to Goodman, Moser would graduate this summer, which would make him eligible to play for the Huskies next season.
For the 6-8, 210-pound power forward, it would be a return to the conference where he began his college career.
The former four-star prospect from Grant High in Portland chose UCLA over UW. He played one season for the Bruins and former coach Ben Howland before transferring to UNLV.
As a sophomore Moser averaged 14 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.0 blocks in 35 games.
Many NBA mock drafts pegged Moser as a second-round pick last year, which is one of the reasons why he returned to the Runnin’ Rebels.
However, UNLV added star freshman Antony Bennett and moved Moser to small forward, which cut his productivity. He averaged 7.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.7 blocks last season in 28 games. He also dislocated his right elbow, which forced him to miss four games.
Washington lost a recruiting battle to Arizona for high school star Aaron Gordon, but adding Moser would be a pretty good Plan B.
