CBS’ Jeff Goodman is reporting that UNLV power forward Mike Moser is “likely” transferring to Washington and will be eligible to play right away since he will graduate this spring.
Moser, 6 foot 8 and 210 pounds out of Portland, had injuries that slowed him last year, and he ended up behind ferocious freshman Anthony Bennett at UNLV. In 21 minutes, he averaged 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game in 21.3 minutes. Moser dislocated his right elbow in December of last year.
Those totals were down from what were powerful numbers his junior season when he averaged 14.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game in 31.4 minutes, turning himself into an NBA prospect.
Moser started his career at ULCA, when he chose the Bruins after decommitting from Arizona, where he barely played before transferring to UNLV, where he is on pace to graduate early, so he will not have to sit out a year when transferring.
If Moser goes to Washington, he will provide another experienced post scorer. Shawn Kemp Jr. has shown the ability to score on the block and transfer Perris Blackwell will be a senior whom Lorenzo Romar has compared to Jamaal Williams.
