Freshman Mike Moser has chosen to leave the UCLA basketball program. Here's the official UCLA release on the move...

UCLA's Release on Mike Moser:

LOS ANGELES - UCLA men's basketball head coach Ben Howland announced today that 6-foot-8-inch freshman forward Mike Moser will not be returning for next season. Moser, from Portland, Ore., and Grant High School, will transfer to play his final years at another school.

Moser will leave UCLA after the spring quarter and hasn't made a decision as to where he will transfer.

"Mike is a good kid, a great student and a very hard worker," Howland said. "I have enjoyed having him in our program. He has a great attitude and I’m supportive of him finding a program where he will have a chance to play more minutes than we envision he will have here.”

Moser averaged 0.6 points and 0.5 rebounds per game while appearing in 15 of the 32 contests without making a start during the 2009-10 season. He played in 70 minutes (4.7 minutes per game) while shooting 20.0 percent (4-for-20) from the field and 9.1 percent (1-for-11) from three-point range on the year. His season high of three points (came on his only three-pointer of the year), was in the 69-67 loss to then No. 12 Butler on Nov. 27, 2009.

"The way the season worked out for me this year, I feel it is necessary for me personally, to make a move somewhere else so I can play," Moser said. "I have enjoyed my time here at UCLA and have built great relationships with my coaches and teammates. I’m going to stay in Division I and haven’t spoken to anyone at all about playing. I won’t rush into a decision. I’ll just wait and see what happens in the next few weeks."
