On Monday Kansas landed former Iowa three-point shooter Isaiah Moss. Moss is a 6’5″ graduate transfer from Chicago who is eligible immediately at Kansas and will be able to play one season for the Jayhawks. Moss shot 40% from the field in the 2018-19 season and 42% from behind the three-point line. Moss averaged 24.1 minutes and 9.2 points per game last season. He was a 79% free throw shooter. His three-point shooting improved every season at Iowa.
“We’ve obviously been looking for shooting throughout this recruiting period and we feel like we have addressed some of those needs with Isaiah’s addition.”Bill Self
Moss is a nice addition to a Jayhawks team in desperate need of outside shooters to open things up for their talented big men down low. The hope with Moss is that he provides the consistent outside shooting the team lacked last season and quality perimeter defense.
“When Isaiah is on the court, he’s going to be a guy that could be a 40-45 percent 3-point shooter and with the line moving back, I think it’s going to be even more important to have somebody who’s consistently good from beyond the arc.”Bill Self
Moss initially planned on finishing his college career at Arkansas but decided last week to re-open his recruitment. He decided within a few days of that announcement that he would transfer to Kansas.
