Cincinnati will be without senior big man Quadri Moore this season as he has opted to transfer to a new program, according to a release from the school.

The 6-foot-8 Moore was a reserve for the Bearcats the last three seasons as he never averaged more than 8.2 minutes per game. Once regarded as a top-150 recruit coming out of high school, Moore could never crack the Cincinnati rotation during his three seasons with the school.

This past season, Moore averaged 2.9 points and 1.4 rebounds per game as he’ll likely have to sit out the 2017-18 season before completing his final year of eligibility elsewhere. While Moore was never able to crack the rotation for a perennial NCAA tournament team, it’ll be intriguing to see where he ends up because Moore could still be a solid contributor at a lower-level program.
