Iowa graduate-transfer guard Isaiah Moss, who visited the University of Arkansas over the weekend, announced his intention to transfer to the Hogs on Wednesday evening.
Moss, 6-5, 208 pounds, started 96 of 102 games for the Hawkeyes after redshirting his first year. He averaged 8.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists in three years in Iowa City while shooting 41% from the field and 39% from beyond the three-point line.
He reportedly visited Kansas after his trip to Fayetteville. Coach Eric Musselman and staff worked hard to get him to visit Arkansas after he announced his plans to transfer on May 2.
"They were one of the first schools to reach out when I put my name in the portal," Moss said. "They've been very consistent. They're showing how much they can use me and how much they want me to come there. That stood out to me."
He averaged 11.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists as a sophomore along with shooting 52% from the field and 39% from the three-point line.
Moss, who played at Simeon High School in Chicago, signed with Iowa over scholarship offers from DePaul, Auburn, SMU, East Carolina and others.
Musselman's extensive NBA background attracted Moss to the Hogs.
"Ultimately, that's my goal is to end up at the next level," Moss said. "I know he has connections, and he knows what it takes to get there."
