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.
BREAKING: Kansas has filled its biggest need and landed a big-time shooter in Isaiah Moss, source told @Stadium. Shot 42 percent from 3 this past season. If Jayhawks get Jalen Wilson over UNC, I’ll bump them up from No. 2 to No. 1 over Michigan State.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) June 10, 2019
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 .
