Moser Decides Again, Picks UCLA

One of the nation's top wings ended his recruitment late Wednesday evening. Moser, a four-star prospect, who had once verbally committed to Arizona, opted to stay in the west and play in the Pac-10...

Just a few weeks after decommitting from Arizona, Mike Moser ended his recruitment, again.

The 6-foot-7, 185-pound wing endured a tough fall. He was set to play for Lute Olson, then the Hall of Fame coach announced his retirement. So in less than a month Moser had to come up with his college destination.

"I think that obviously the coaching staff and the way they've been able to develop guys and the way they've developed guys in the NBA and how those guys have performed in the NBA and the prestige of their program [stood out]," Moser's AAU coach Kumbeno Memory said.

On Wednesday, the last day of the early signing period, Moser, who took recent official visits to UCLA, USC and Oregon, announced his final decision in front of family and friends at Rose's Ice Cream Parlor.'s 60th ranked prospect went with UCLA.

"I just knew when I heard from him when he came back from UCLA and he just said he loved it down there and he hadn't said that about any of the visits he'd taken," Memory said. "I think that was just the best place for him, especially for what he wants to do with his career and his life."

The Portland (Ore.) Grant standout has good length, can guard multiple positions and is an impressive spot-up shooter out to 22-feet. He's ranked No. 11 at the small forward position.

Moser is the fifth prospect to commit and sign a National Letter of Intent to UCLA. Anthony Stover, Brendan Lane, Reeves Nelson and Tyler Honeycutt signed a week ago.
