Mike Moser transferring to Washington, according to a report

Jeff Bottari

In a surprising move, UNLV will likely be losing Mike Moser not to the NBA, but to Washington.

The news surrounding UNLV forward Mike Moser was if he was going to go to the NBA, but on Friday it looks like Moser has elected to return to the Pac-12 and play for the Washington Huskies, which is much closer to his Portland home.

A Report surfaced on Friday from CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman had a source saying, "It's almost done that he's going to transfer and play at Washington."

One the surface this seems to be a pretty big blow to UNLV who is losing Anthony Bennett to the NBA, however it is also not that surprising based on how Moser performed this past year, and with the influx of new talent including four-star power forward Christian Wood who is part of the Rebels 2013 class.

Moser also is still not healthy and still can not fully extend his arm on rebounds or finish above the rim. He also forced his way back on the court to play well before he was completely healthy. However, if Moser is able to get back to being 100 percent then this is a huge loss for UNLV and a big gain for Washington.

This past year Moser was injured for a good part of the the year with a dislocated elbow, and he underperformed by averaging just 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds, which is way down from his production as a junior where he scored 14 points and 10.5 rebounds.

Moser has already transferred once in his career as he left the UCLA Bruins to come to UNLV after his freshman year, but by being on track to graduate in August Moser can play right away for Washington this next season.
