Former UNLV forward Mike Moser has decided to transfer to Oregon, picking the Ducks over Gonzaga and Washington.

Moser informed Gonzaga’s coaching staff of his decision Tuesday. He recently visited all three Northwest schools and opted for the one closest to his hometown of Portland.

The 6-foot-8, 210-pound Moser averaged 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds during an injury plagued junior season. His playing time also decreased with the arrival of freshman standout Anthony Bennett and Pitt transfer Khem Birch. Moser produced 14 points and 10.4 rebounds two years ago.

Moser told the Oregonian that he’ll be eligible immediately if he completes an online course to finish his degree at UNLV.

Gonzaga, looking to reinforce its front court with the graduation of Elias Harris and Kelly Olynyk’s decision to enter his name in the NBA Draft, remains in the running for Tulane forward Josh Davis, an All-Conference USA first-team selection who averaged 17.6 points and 10.7 rebounds last season.

Davis, who is reportedly considering San Diego State and Gonzaga, would be eligible next season if he earns his degree from Tulane. The 6-8 Davis began his career at North Carolina State before transferring to Tulane.
