HCA: Cougar basketball picks up transfer from Wichita State

Help is on the way (in December of 2019)

NCAA Basketball: Washington State at Stanford Andrew Villa-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State basketball is gearing up to start conference play this weekend against Washington. In the meantime, Ernie Kent and company are keeping an eye on the future.

Former Wichita State player Chance Moore announced on Twitter Monday afternoon that he has committed to Washington State. The forward played in just 4 games this season for the Shockers, announcing his intention to transfer in the middle of last month. He scored just 4 points in 20 total minutes on the floor.

Coming out of high school, Moore was a highly touted recruit. ESPN ranked the 6-foot-6 forward as a 4-star prospect with plenty of other division one scholarship offers. But a big reason for the transfer may have been his relationship with Shockers head coach Greg Marshall. “He thought he should be playing more and our staff didn’t,” Marshall told the Wichita Eagle. “We had some specific things we wanted him to do to play more and he just couldn’t come around to that. I wish him well, hope he does great and we’ll try to help him in any way.”

Because he transferred in the middle of the season, Moore will sit out a calendar year and will be eligible to play starting in December of 2019.
