Moser looking at three schools

Mike Moser will transfer from UNLV and will look at three colleges to finish his final year of college basketball.

Will Dana Altman get a chance to coach Michael Moser at Oregon next season?

Moser's old AAU coach Kumbeno Memory told Moser will visit Oregon Friday and Saturday before visiting Washington Sunday. Gonzaga is Moser's third school of interest and will visit the Zags next week.

As a junior Moser averaged 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, but his season was scarred by a hip injury that forced him to miss seven games. The Rebels also signed five-star Anthony Bennett last spring and were forced to move Moser to small forward instead of power forward.

In 2011-12 Moser was an honorable mention All-American after averaging 14 points. 10.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists.

The 6-foot-8 power forward would be a welcomed addition to Oregon as the Ducks look to replace Arsalan Kazemi.

Moser played his high school ball at Grant high school out of Portland, OR. A four-star recruit Moser picked UCLA over Oregon and Washington. After one season Moser transferred to UNLV.

Moser will graduate this spring and be eligible to play right away as a graduate transfer like Kazemi and Olu Ashaolu.

A source told that Oregon and Gonzaga appear to have jumped ahead of Washington. A report said Moser was at one time leaning towards Washington.The source said the Washington Huskies coaching staff even thought Moser was close to committing, but interest from other schools changed that stance from Moser. is told that Moser's interest in all three schools is due to his belief all three will be in the NCAA Tournament, have a need a power forward, and are close to home for friends and family.

A source also told that Arizona is no longer in the running for Moser. Arizona's loaded front-court and signing of five-star small forwards Rondae Jefferson and Aaron Gordon present a log-jam at both power and small forward.
