According to a report by Jeff Goodman from CBS Sports and a tweet by ESPN's Andy Katz, UNLV's Mike Moser will "likely" transfer to Washington.

"It's almost done that he's going to transfer and play at Washington," one source said. (Via: CBS Sports)

The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game for the Rebels this past season, but battled a mid-season injury and played out of position the majority of the season. He is still not fully recovered from a dislocated elbow injury he suffered in December.

Rice said Moser still isn’t 100 percent. He said he can’t extend his reach on rebounds as he did in the past, and often has trouble finishing plays above the rim. But that's certainly a far cry from where he was back in January, when Moser begged his way back onto the court before he was ready. (Via: ESPN)

Moser would be eligible to play right away because he is graduating from UNLV and would be participating in a graduate program at UW if he were to transfer.

Once projected as a high NBA draft pick, Moser averaged 14 points and 10.5 rebounds as a sophomore at UNLV. The Portland native played one season in the Pac-10 at UCLA under Ben Howland, but transferred to UNLV after his freshman year.

Here's a short clip of him playing against other top college players at the 2012 LeBron James Academy (he's No. 25 on White):
