KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dennis Gates strikes again.

Gates, the new University of Missouri men’s basketball coach, struck gold on the recruiting trail Monday, June 6, landing a commitment from former Missouri State shooting Isiaih Mosley, according to On3.

Mosley, a 6-foot-5 wing who graduated from Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, was the fourth-ranked prospect in the 2022 transfer portal, according to CBS Sports.

Mizzou officially announced Mosley's signing on June 15.

"Mizzou is home," Mosley said in a statement from MU Athletics. "I'm excited about what is building here and want to help bring a winning culture to Mizzou. Committing here was an easy choice because it's back home, but it was made even easier after talking with coach Gates and the rest of the staff."

As a junior with the Bears last season, Mosley averaged 20.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals.

He shot 54.2% inside the arc, 42.7% beyond the arc and 90.2% at the free-throw line last season.

Led by Mosley, Missouri State finished 23-11, including 13-5 en route to a runner-up finish in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Mosley averaged 19.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists as a sophomore when the Bears went 17-7 overall and 12-6 in the Missouri Valley, finishing third in the conference.

"I am ecstatic to have Isiaih back home in Columbia," Gates said in a statement. "It is a priority for us to make Mizzou THE destination for our in-state kids. I believe Isiaih will have an impact in all areas that are important to our program – in the classroom as he works toward his degree, on the court as he excels with his teammates and in the community as he gives back to the same city that raised him."

Mosley helped lead Columbia-Rock Bridge to a Missouri Class 5 state title in 2019, averaging 23.2 points and 6.9 rebounds en route to being named the top player in Missouri.
