LITTLE ROCK — Iowa grad-transfer wing Isaiah Moss (6-5, 208, native of Chicago) is expected to begin a weekend visit to Arkansas on Friday, according to source information provided earlier in the week.
“I would like to thank my teammates and coaches, and all the fans for being there for me,” Moss said via a University of Iowa athletic department press release issued on Thursday, May 2nd. “The last four years have been a great experience.”
A fourth-year junior in 2018-19, Moss started 96 games for the Hawkeyes in his three seasons in Iowa City, IA, and had a career scoring-average of 8.9 points. He started all 35 games and was fifth on the team in scoring last season, averaging 9.2 points to go with 2.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 24.1 minutes per game. He was also second on the team in steals (32).
Moss ranked fourth in the Big Ten in 3-point shooting percentage going 48 of 114 for 43.1% in ’18-19, and he was good from the free throw line as well (79.1%). Moss’s two best career scoring games — 32 points and 23 points — both came against Minnesota.
In his final game of the ’18-19 season, Moss finished with 16 points (6-of-12 field goals, including 3-of-5 from 3), 5 rebounds, and 2 steals in 29 minutes in Iowa’s 83-77 overtime loss against Tennessee in the NCAA tournament Round of 32 on March 24.
Should Moss eventually transfer to Arkansas, he would become the third Hog perimeter player who stands at least 6-5, matching the height of SEC All Freshman shooting guard Isaiah Joe and sophomore wing Mason Jones.
