LAS VEGAS, NV – UNLV junior forward Mike Moser is leaning toward transferring and spending his final season at Washington, where he would be eligible next season, sources told CBSSports.com.
The 6-foot-8 Moser, who battled injuries this season and only averaged 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, will likely graduate this summer and transfer. One source said he could still elect to put his name in for the NBA Draft, but that’s unlikely.
“It’s almost done that he’s going to transfer and play at Washington,” one source said.
Moser was regarded as a potential late first-round pick a year ago, after he averaged 14 points and 10.5 rebounds. However, the injuries this season and the fact that he was unable to play power forward, his natural position, have resulted in his NBA Draft stock dropping significantly.
Moser began his college career at UCLA under Ben Howland and barely played as a freshman with the Bruins.
