Mosby-Barber signs NLI to play for Vikings

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Jordan Mosby-Barber, a 6-foot-9, 255-pound center, has sign a National Letter of Intent to play men’s basketball at Western Washington University beginning this fall.

“Jordan adds great size and toughness to our inside game,” said WWU head coach Tony Dominguez in making the announcement. “He also has tremendous touch and should be a big addition defensively. We are very excited about finding a true inside player who adds a different dimension to our team.”

Mosby-Barber is transferring from Clackamas CC where he received Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges Southern Region all-star honorable mention as a sophomore, averaging 11.6 points and 7.8 rebounds.

Mosby-Barber helped the Cougars place seventh at the NWAACC Tournament. He also played on a post-season playoff team as a freshman.

A graduate of Parkrose High School in Portland, Mosby-Barber is a criminal justice/sociology major.

WWU graduated six of its top eight players, three of them starters, from a 31-3 team that reached the national semifinals.
