UCLA Going All Out for Moser

The very athletic, 6-7 wing, Mike Moser from Portland (Ore.) Grant, is seeing his recruitment intensify, with many schools now pursuing him since he de-committed from Arizona a couple of weeks ago. He'll take an official visit to a Pac-10 school this weekend...

Mike Moser, the 6-7 wing from Portland (Oreg.) Grant, will visit UCLA officially this weekend, according to sources.

Moser, one of the most talented players on the west coast for 2009, de-committed from Arizona a couple of weeks ago after Lute Olson announced his retirement as the Wildcat head coach.

Since then, Moser has been inundated with recruiting attention, from around the country.

Schools like Indiana and Louisville have contacted Moser to gauge interest.

Sources are telling us, however, that he, as of now, wants to stay on the west and in the Pac-10. The schools in serious contention are UCLA, Oregon and Washington.

Moser has indicated in recent interviews that he wanted to wait until the spring signing period to decide. But we're hearing, with how much attention he's been getting, he could commit considerably before that, in fact, in the next few weeks.

The fall signing period begins next Wednesday, November 12th and extends one week.

Sources close to the recruitment feel that UCLA is in good shape with Moser, and that his official visit this weekend could make a huge impact on him. UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland and assistant Donnie Daniels visited Moser's high school Tuesday.

Moser had previously visited just Arizona officially, so he'll have three more official visit available if he chooses to take them.


Here's a thread on the BRO Premium Hoops Message Board from Greg Hicks about Moser's recruitment.
