Several media outlets are reporting UNLV junior Mike Moser plans to visit Washington on Sunday after taking a look at Oregon on Saturday.
As a sophomore, the 6-8 forward was an honorable mention all-American who averaged 14 points. 10.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists in 2011-12.
Last season his production dipped because of a hip injury that forced him to miss seven games and the arrival of All-American freshman forward Anthony Bennett. Moser averaged 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in 2012-13.
Left Coast Recruiting tweeted Moser will visit Gonzaga next week. Arizona was believed to be in the picture, but the Wildcats are no longer considered an option.
Moser starred at Grant High in Portland. A four-star recruit, he committed to Arizona before signing with UCLA. After one season, he transferred to UNLV.
Washington has one remaining scholarship. Coach Lorenzo Romar said if the Huskies used the scholarship, then it would be given to a front-line player.
Landing Moser would soothe the sting after losing highly touted prospect Aaron Gordon to Arizona. And some would argue, Moser will have a bigger impact in the Pac-12 next season than Gordon.
Washington received great news last week when junior C.J. Wilcox decided to return to school. His decision could help the Huskies recruit Moser.
“Really good players want to play with really good players,” Romar said.
