Matthew Moyer, who spent the last two seasons with the Syracuse basketball program, will join the Commodores this summer and be eligible to compete for Vanderbilt in the 2019-20 campaign after sitting out the 2018-19 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
“The addition of Matt Moyer to our program is very exciting,” said Vanderbilt head coach Bryce Drew. “We believe he is a very talented wing player who fits our style of play well. Matt will enhance our program in many ways outside of basketball. He is a tremendous young man and excels in the classroom.”
Moyer played one season at Syracuse in 2017-18 after redshirting in 2016-17 due to injury. Moyer played in 35 games last season and made 20 starts, averaging 3.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. He registered a career-high 18 points against UConn and grabbed a career-best 13 rebounds against Virginia Tech.
“I am really excited to get to campus and start learning from Coach Drew and help start a winning culture at Vanderbilt,” said Moyer. “With the current roster and incoming class, the opportunity to do something special is right at our doorstep.”
