Tulane freshman shooting guard/small forward Moses Wood has found a new program.
Wood announced via his Twitter that he is transferring to UNLV to play for newly hired head coach T. J. Otzelberger.
The freshman played in 31 games for the Green Wave this season and averaged 4.5 points per game, 3.1 rebounds per game, and 0.9 assists per game. Wood only started in two games but was frequently the first player off of Tulane’s bench when he did not start. The freshman flashed his high scoring potential in games versus Memphis and East Carolina when he scored 17 and 15 points, respectively.
Wood is from Reno, Nevada and played at Galena High School so his decision to transfer to UNLV does not come as a surprise.
Wood is one of three Tulane players who announced their intention to transfer, along with sophomore Caleb Daniels and freshman Connor Crabtree. Each player’s announcement came after Tulane fired Head Coach Mike Dunleavy Sr.
Wood is the first of the three to announce his next destination. Both Daniels and Crabtree have not ruled out the possibility of returning to play for the Green Wave and new Head Coach Ron Hunter next season.
While the loss of Wood undoubtedly stings, Coach Hunter appears to have already found his replacement. Last weekend, Hunter received a commitment from high school shooting guard/small forward R.J. McGee Jr.
