Following Washington’s departure, Oregon State Basketball issued a press release stating they had picked up junior wing Sean Miller-Moore from Moberly Area Community College in Moberly, Mo.

In his previous season, Miller-Moore averaged 18.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists, while shooting 59.1% from the field.

According to the press release, OSU Head Coach Wayne Tinkle said the program is happy to have Miller-Moore on the team.

“He’s an incredible athlete with a high motor and will bring toughness and athleticism to our forward positions,” Tinkle said via OSU Athletics. “He has a great knack of getting to the rim and finishing. He’s an elite athlete. He’s a great kid who will do well in the classroom and represent the program the right way.”

Attempts to connect with Oregon State Athletics and Washington have been made, though no responses have been made thus far.
