Nice. 3 year veteran at Iowa. Shot 42% from 3 last year. Great pickup: quality player and fills a gap that needed filling.

14 championships, 13 home losses since 2003

Solid pickup. I think SG is his unless/until Ochai or someone else beats him out of the starting job.
Either way, it's all good for KU.

I agree HE, I think we just got our starting SG. Of course, there will be incredible competition for minutes in the KU backcourt this season as it stands. If Wilson commits, we will have a wealth of riches in the backcourt. My best guess is Moss starts at DG and likely Garrett at the 3. But as I have posted, I think Enaruna my end up being the anti-Grimes in that he will be a big positive surprise. Of course, Wilson may end up being the guy that starts at the 3 or even Agbaji. What a deep bench we will have. But I would trade a deep bench for a super top 7 or 8. I think we may also have a super top 7 or 8 as well. My oh my how the 2019-20 fortunes of KU have waxed and waned over the last 75 days.

Don't worry about the mules, just load the wagon!!

Agree, Corpus, next year's team is starting to look like a monster of the like unseen since 2008 (we should be so lucky as fans to see such things!)

Here are some crib notes that former RCBer and current JayhawkSlant senior writer Shay Wildeboor posted on a discussion he had with Moss after the commitment...

EXCERPT

-- just committed and decided this morning

-- putting up 500 shots day

-- wants to bring his deep shooting and
perimeter defense!!! (emphasis mine - HE)

-- once scored 19 points in 96 seconds

-- is really good friends with the older brother of Devon Dotson
(guess it didn't hurt, huh? - HE)

bklynhawk et al, here's the rest of the Poole answer from the 24 May 2019 tweet by Scott Bordelon:
Michigan guard Jordan Poole was asked who the toughest player he faced during the 2018-19 season was. His response was Isaiah Moss, who committed to Arkansas last week


Also, here is KU Athletics on Moss commitment

I'd not seen this. Thanks for the post. That's outstanding! Got some of the outside shooting we desperately need. Appears to be a great pick up for 2019-2020. We keep getting better.

VERY nice pickup. Slowly but surely, Self and the crew are filling all the key holes. I think we would likely be VERY good with what we have right now. But if we add Wilson as well, whoa, Nellie! :-) The competition will be fierce, but we will have an incredible rotation and a nice, deep bench.

Great day to be a Jayhawk fan!
