Isaiah Moss began to see more aggressive interest in his services the fall of his senior season. Auburn and Iowa State made offers, but he felt most comfortable at Iowa and committed after his first official visit. Moss is a 6'5", 175 pound small forward, and a product of the famous Simeon Career Academy in Chicago, Illinois. Not as highly touted as some of it's more recent products (a 4-star recruit according to ESPN), Moss will still make an impact at Iowa.
Moss is a good finisher too, and gets above the rim regularly. He'll finish with authority, but generally feels more comfortable attacking with his right hand. Moss can also adeptly find open teammates should his scoring lane close. His vision to get teammates involved adds another dimension to his driving ability. On catch and shoots, he looks to be a capable shooter from beyond the arc. When his feet are set, he's dangerous. As a threat, defenses will have to close out on him and that'll set up the drive, which is his true strength. Moss does show some ability to hit pull up mid-range jumpers, which makes him pretty well-rounded offensively.
Defensively, he will be able to guard multiple positions and that versatility will be huge. Once he adds some size, he'll guard ones, twos and threes without much issue. Switching on the perimeter won't be a problem should he get involved in pick-and-rolls. His length is also a great asset defensively because he can disrupt passing lanes with his long arms and athleticism. Like always, it'll just be a matter of effort on defense. If he gives effort, his athleticism will take him the rest of the way.
