The men’s basketball team is still trying to figure out what the post Tres Tinkle era is going to look like. We may have some hint of the team’s future plans, as reports have come out that the program has tried to recruit Vanderbilt transfer Matthew Moyer.

Moyer, a forward who will be a redshirt senior next season, announced he had entered the transfer portal a couple week ago, and has reportedly become a target for the Beavers. Moyer is also considering Cal Poly, Dayton, Duquesne, George Washington and Kent State.

Wherever he lands, it will be Moyer’s third spot in his college career. Moyer originally committed to play for Jim Boeheim at Syracuse, but after a single season and a redshirt year elected to transfer. While Moyer was a starter his Freshman year at Syracuse, he moved into a reserve role with the Commodores. His last season at Vanderbilt was limited by a shoulder injury. So far in his career Moyer as averaged 3.0 points per game and 2.9 rebounds per game.

Oregon State is also pursuing Sacred Heart transfer Cameron Parker. Parker is also a forward and will be a junior next season. A Beaverton native, Parker has also drawn interest from South Florida, St. Bonaventure’s and Temple.

During his time at Sacred Heart, Parker broke the NCAA record for Assists in a single game, with 24 against Pine Manor. He averaged 7.5 points per game, 4.1 rebounds per game and 7.2 assists per game in his two seasons at Sacred Heart.
