After reports from Jon Rothstein earlier today that suggested Missouri State transfer Isiaih Mosley had cut his list of prospective destinations to just two schools, the Columbia, MO native has announced that he will be staying home to join Missouri for the 2022-23 season.
A 6-foot-5 guard, Mosley averaged 20.4 PPG, 6.2 RPG, and 2.3 APG as a junior with the Bears earning a second All-MVC selection as well as previously, the conference’s 2020-21 Most Improved Player Award for a season in which Mosley managed 19.8 PPG on 51% shooting from the field.
To follow that up, Mosley would prove just one of twelve Divison I men’s basketball players to achieve the 50/40/90 shooting split last season which put him in the top-15 scorers in the nation.
While Mosley brings to Missouri a veteran guard presence and elite scoring ability as arguably one of the best pure shooters to enter this offseason’s transfer portal, he’s also become known for his defense and over three seasons has seen his steals per game gradually increase finishing last year with 1.2 STPG.
With two seasons of eligibility remaining, Mosley gives Missouri head coach Dennis Gates an extremely talented weapon and go-to scorer in Gates’ first season with the Tigers as he builds on an already very exciting transfer class that includes the Clevland State pair of D’Moi Hodge and Tre Gomillion, Clemson’s Nick Honor, DeAndre Gholston from Milwaukee and Northern Iowa’s Noah Carter.
