More and more it’s looking as though Keith Dambrot hasn’t given up on adding to his 2020-21 roster.
A few days after offering 2020 three-star forward Jabari Walker, PSN has learned that the Duquesne staff is looking into Vanderbilt forward Matt Moyer, who recently entered the transfer portal.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Moyer is from the Columbus, Ohio area and keep in mind that Keith Dambrot and Duquesne have a history of recruiting that area in Aaron Jackson and Nate Linhart, who Dambrot coached at Akron.
Moyer, is a 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward, whose college career hasn’t gone as planned. Coming out of South Kent Prep in Connecticut, Moyer was a four-star recruit, rated as the 66th overall prospect and was named the Connecticut Gatorade Player of the Year.
Moyer originally signed with Syracuse and worked his way into Jim Boeheim’s rotation. However, after multiple injuries impacted his role with the team, he decided to transfer to Vanderbilt in 2018. Despite being named a team captain, Moyer neither started or played more than 20 minutes in a game aside from the opener in 2019-20.
With only one season remaining, Moyer is looking for a program that he can fit in with and hopefully get to display the talent he showed coming out of high school. According to college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Moyer is also receiving early interest from Oregon State, George Washington, Dayton, Kent State and Cal Poly.
Duquesne is already two players over the scholarship limit, so it’ll be interesting to see if things get serious between the two sides.
