Mizzou basketball coach Dennis Gates comments on addition of standout transfer Isiaih Mosley
Missouri head coach Dennis Gates is excited that Isiaih Mosley is officially a Tiger. Mizzou announced the addition of Mosley, a Columbia native who transferred from Missouri State, on Wednesday.
“I am ecstatic to have Isiaih back home in Columbia,” Gates said in a program release. “It is a priority for us to make Mizzou THE destination for our in-state kids. I believe Isiaih will have an impact in all areas that are important to our program – in the classroom as he works toward his degree, on the court as he excels with his teammates and in the community as he gives back to the same city that raised him.”
Mosley ranked No. 15 nationally among scorers in 2021-22, averaging 20.4 points per game. He also contributed 6.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals per contest. Mosley was with Missouri State of the Missouri Valley Conference for 3 seasons, where he was a 2-time NABC All-District and All-MVC player.
“Mizzou is home,” Mosley said via the team website. “I’m excited about what is building here and want to help bring a winning culture to Mizzou. Committing here was an easy choice because it’s back home, but it was made even easier after talking with coach Gates and the rest of the staff.”
Mosley narrowed his transfer options down to Mississippi State and Missouri before pledging to the Tigers on June 6.
