EUGENE - UNLV forward Mike Moser has elected to play his final year of eligibility at the University of Oregon, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday.

Moser will be eligible to play immediately, as he has finished his degree and adds necessary depth in the front court left by Tony Woods and Arsalan Kazemi.

An Oregon-native, who attended Grant in Portland, Oregon will be the forward's third collegiate stop. He began his career at UCLA, but transferred after playing just 70 minutes for the Bruins.

Moser then transferred to UNLV where he had immediate success in his first season, averaging 14 points and 10.5 rebids per game, en route to unanimous first-team All-Mountain West honors.

In 2012-13, Moser suffered a shoulder injury in a December win over California and missed six of the next eight games. Following the injury Moser's numbers declined, in part due to moving to the perimeter to make room for super frosh Anthony Bennett.

Moser's versatility will allow him to play either SF or PF at Oregon. He shot 44-133 from 3-pt range his sophomore season.

Numerous outlets have also reported that Oregon redshirt freshman Austin Kuemper has elected to transfer, giving Oregon one more scholarship.

Much speculation has tied Oregon to Memphis center Tarik Black, who like Moser, is looking for a one-year destination.

Kuemper is the second Duck to transfer this spring, guard Willie Moore also chose to leave the program in April.

Moser becomes Oregon's fifth one-year transfer under head coach Dana Altman. The Ducks have previously used the services of Jay-R Strowbridge, Olu Ashoulu, Devoe Joseph and Kazemi.
