According to Jeff Goodman, Kansas has landed Iowa graduate transfer Isaiah Moss. Moss is a 6'5 wing who can shoot, addressing the only major need in the roster for the upcoming season.

Moss played three years at Iowa and will have one year of eligibility, and will not have to sit out. Last year, Moss played about 60% of Iowa's available minutes and shot 42% on 114 three point attempts, which should make him the best shooter on the roster on day one. His sophomore year he shot 39% on 127 tries, so it's safe to call him a legit shooter.

In other aspects of his game, he struggled from two point range last year, shooting just 38% inside the arc, but 1) it was by far the lowest of his career, and 2) per hoop-math, he was shooting a lot of mid range jumpers, something that's unlikely to continue in Self's offense this year. He seems to be a decent enough defender based on descriptions of him from Iowa folks, but won't likely contribute many steals or blocks. He does, however, pass the ball well for a wing. His 14.2% assist rate last year would have ranked second among KU's heavy rotation players, which means he can provide more than just a shooter looking for open shots.

Moss will have a great shot at starting, and his offensive talents will provide an immediate boost to a team that already looks promising in a variety of areas .
