OSU Hoops: Goodbye Warren Washington, Hello Sean Miller-Moore!

 

I really liked the play of Oregon State Freshman Warren Washington. The 6' 11" Junior averaged just under eight minutes per game and his scoring average was minimal.....1.3 points per game. But he did have a ton of upside and that is going to happen somewhere else. The alum of Mission Hills High School in San Marcos, California says he is transferring. Here is his social media post:

Washington was also recruited by Cal and Utah but he hasn't revealed where he may go next. Enter Sean Miller-Moore who is from Toronto, Ontario via Moberly Community College in Moberly, Missouri where he led the Greyhounds to a 28-7 record. Here is the official release from Oregon State Athletics:

Oregon State head coach Wayne Tinkle and his staff announced Monday the addition of Sean Miller-Moore who signed a National Letters of Intent to join the Beaver basketball program for the 2019-20 season.

Miller-Moore, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound wing from Toronto, Ontario joins a class that includes Julien Franklin, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound shooting guard from Villa Park, Calif., Gianni Hunt, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound point guard from Torrance, Calif., and Jarod Lucas, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound point guard from Hacienda Heights, Calif.

Wayne Tinkleon Sean Miller-Moore:

"We are excited to be adding Sean Miller-Moore to the team," Tinkle said. "He's a great kid who has been through a lot growing up and has faced a ton of adversity. He has a great support group back home and has worked his tail off to get where he is. We are thrilled to be bringing him to the Beaver basketball program.

"He's an incredible athlete with a high motor and will bring toughness and athleticism to our forward positions. 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.

"Our focus with this recruiting class was toughness and athleticism. We feel like Sean is great addition to the three players we signed in the fall."

Miller-Moore chose Oregon State because "Oregon State is very family orientated and I strive in any place where everybody has a common goal. It wasn't just basketball that they stressed on, it was about being life champions. I love it. Besides that, I got a feel for all the guys and I think I could be that added piece for them to do great things next season."
