After losing out on five-star recruit RJ Hampton, Kansas Basketball was still in need of another playmaking guard for next season.

"We've obviously been looking for shooting throughout this recruiting period and we feel like we have addressed some of those needs with Isaiah's addition", Self said in a press release.

Moss is entering the final year of his collegiate career and will be immediately eligible. But that only lasted for a couple of weeks before option to reopen his recruitment process.

The guard from Chicago was a three-year starter for the Hawkeyes after utilizing a redshirt his freshman season, and averaged 9.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game as a redshirt junior. The previous season he posted 11.1 points per game and connected on 38.6% of his triples.

Quentin Grimes' decision to withdraw from the NBA Draft and transfer from Kansas wasn't a great development for the Jayhawks. But neither can spread the floor and shoot the ball, meaning that the perimeter players will have to step up.

More to Self's point, Moss made 42.1% of the 114 3-pointers he attempted - and has made 40.2% of the 241 3-pointers he's attempted over the past two seasons.

Kansas might not be done, with top-50 recruit in the 2019 class Jalen Wilson still available.

After committing to Arkansas on May 15 and de-committing on June 7, Moss tweeted his commitment to the Jayhawks on Monday.

The sharpshooter is now heading to the Big 12.
