WILLIAMSBURG — William & Mary head men’s basketball coach Dane Fischer announced the addition of 6-3 sophomore point guard Trey Moss (Orlando, Fla. / Windermere / South Florida) to the Tribe program for the 2023-24 season. Moss spent the last two seasons for American Athletic Conference program South Florida.
“We are thrilled to welcome Trey to the William & Mary Basketball family,” Fischer said. “Trey is a dynamic point guard who can facilitate, score and lead a team. In addition to filling a huge need for our program on the court, Trey is an outstanding student and will be a great fit on campus and within our community.”
Over his two seasons at USF, Moss played in 39 games averaging 1.3 points, a rebound and an assist per game. He was one of only three Bull players to appear in all 31 games during his true freshman season in 2021-22, but he saw action in just eight games last season before redshirting his sophomore campaign.
“Trey has great size for his position and has the ability to be an excellent and versatile defender for us,” Fischer said. “He has an unbelievable work ethic and is a great teammate.”
As a freshman, Moss dished out four assists in his second collegiate game, a victory over Georgia Southern on Nov. 13, 2021. Late in his rookie season, he came up big with six points and five rebounds in a 56-54 win at Cincinnati on Feb. 26, 2022. Last season, Moss knocked down a pair of 3-pointers in a win over Dartmouth on Dec. 16, 2022.
Along with his success on the court, Moss has excelled in the classroom as well. He was selected as the South Florida Student-Athlete of the Month in December of 2022. Moss was named to The National Society of Leadership and Success in November of 2022.
Regarded as one of the top point guards in the country coming out of Windermere High School, Moss was a three-star prospect and a two-time Florida Class 7A All-State. He graduated as the school’s all-time leader in points (1,443), rebounds (678), assists (542), steals (155) and 3-point field goals (201). Moss was ranked as the No. 2 point guard and the 17th-best player in the state of Florida in the class of 2021 by Florida Hoops recruiting services and was ranked as high as the No. 22 point guard in the nation by Corey Evans of Roundball Rundown.
Moss becomes the third transfer to join the Tribe ahead of the 2023-24 along with 6-8 junior forward Caleb Dorsey from Penn State and 6-4 graduate guard Sean Houpt from Florida Tech. In total, the Tribe’s incoming group sits at five with a pair of freshmen in 6-10 forward Tai Hamilton (Charlotte, N.C. / 1 of 1 Academy) and 6-4 guard Jayden Lemond (Marietta, Ga. / Blair Academy (N.J.).
The Tribe returns a trio of starters and eight letterwinners from the 2022-23 season. W&M’s 7.5-game improvement last season ranked second in the CAA and among the top 30 in the country. The Green and Gold, which ranked second in the CAA and 48th nationally in 3-point % last season, advanced to the quarterfinals of the CAA Tournament behind a 73-51 win over Elon in March.
