2009 prospect Mike Moser caused a stir amongst college coaches with his play at the Main Event at the end of the summer. Moser, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward from Portland (Ore.) Grant High School, has only improved his stock with his play during the high school season.
"Mike can handle, shoot it, has a high IQ and is long," said Moser's travel team coach Kumbeno Memory of I-5 Elite. "The best thing about him, though, is that he is a gym rat. He loves to play and is open to criticism. That's why he is just getting better and better."
With offers from Oregon State, Washington State, UNLV and a handful of mid-majors, Moser has been under the watchful eye of Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Utah, UNLV, Utah State and Hawaii this high school season. Arizona is expected to watch him soon.
According to Coach Memory, Arizona State, Baylor, Kansas, Kentucky and Texas A&M have also been in contact recently. More offers for Moser are expected this spring.
"Mike is just taking it all in right now," said Coach Memory. "The offers came in late in the summer and early in the fall. I expect more to come in once he gets back on the circuit this spring."
Averaging 15 points, 11 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.5 blocks per game, Moser was the lone underclassman to be named to the All Tournament Team at the Les Schwab Invitational.
