Superstar UNLV power forward Mike Moser has narrowed his list of potential schools down to three schools including the Gonzaga Bulldogs, Washington Huskies and Oregon Ducks.
Moser is an incredibly talented forward that would likely come in and start from day one for the Ducks, taking over the spot left from graduating senior Arsalan Kazemi. Moser, already a graduate, would be able to play immediately without waiting a year due to NCAA transfer rules.
Moser missed part of last season due to a hip injury and lost playing time to sensational true freshman Anthony Bennett who entered his name for this year’s NBA draft.
Oregon head coach Dana Altman has been a master of bringing in transfer players. The most recent example was Kazemi, a transfer from Rice who gave the Ducks huge minutes and productivity through scoring and defensive presence, primarily rebounds.
It seems a safe bet that Oregon stands a strong chance of landing Moser. The 6’8″ 210 lbs forward is from Portland and primarily wants some to play some place close to home where there’s a need for a PF and a chance of playing in the NCAA Tourney.
Here’s how the three teams did last season:
- Washington: finished 18-16 (9-9) with a loss in the first round of the NIT to BYU
- Gonzaga: finished 32-3 (16-0) with loss to Wichita State in the round of 32
- Oregon: finished 28-9 (12-6) with a loss in the sweet 16 to Louisville (eventual national champion)
Oregon will have to wait and see if they can add another star to their talented 2013 recruiting class. Maybe Altman has found something in the transfer market.
