Oregon Pursuing Transfer Players From Four-Year Colleges

Is Texas transfer Sheldon McClellan a good option for the Ducks? - USA TODAY Sports

Two front court players and a guard have been linked to Oregon in the last couple weeks.

A couple weeks ago I talked about how Oregon was aggressively searching for front court players in the Junior College ranks, but could also look to transfers from 4-year colleges. Since that time a couple new front court prospects have emerged.

Mike Moser: Mike Moser is a 6'8 forward transferring from UNLV. A Portland native, he was a four star player out of high school and considered Oregon before ultimately landing with UCLA. He later transferred to UNLV, where he was an Honorable Mention All-American during his sophomore year. As a Junior he was slowed by injuries and forced to play small forward with freshman superstar Anthony Bennett manning the power forward position. Moser has already graduated and would be eligible to play for the Ducks right away.

There were rumors last week that Moser was leaning towards Washington, but reports are that he had a great visit at Oregon. 247Sports spoke with Moser's AAU coach, who had this to say:

"Oregon will play in the Pac-12 and they've got the deal with ESPN and their own network that will put Mike on TV every game," said Memory. "Mike also likes the way Oregon will use him and let him float and just be a basketball player. Oregon didn't say he'd be locked in one position or another position and just let him play."

In addition to Oregon and Washington Moser is also considering Gonzaga. It sounds like all three schools are neck-and-neck.

Tarik Black: Black is a huge Center at 6'9, 260 lbs. He came off the bench last year for Memphis but given his size and athleticism is nonetheless coveted by top programs around the country, including Duke, Ohio State, Miami, and Kansas, among many others. At this point Oregon has it's work cut out to land his signature, but they do present an opportunity for immediate playing time and lots of national exposure.

Sheldon McClellan: McClellan is a 6'4 guard who was the leading scorer for the Texas Longhorns last year as a sophomore.

He was a four star player out of high school and would need to sit out a year before using his two remaining years of eligibility. With the forward positions being much more critical for the upcoming season, I'd expect the Ducks to try and land a front court player first, but McClellan is a player to keep an eye on. After sitting out a year he would be in the same class as rising sophomores Damyean Dotson, Dominic Artis, and Ben Carter, as well as junior college transfer Elgin Cook.
