Springfield two-sport standout RaHeim Moss picks up first Division I basketball offer


RaHeim Moss’ big junior season at Springfield did not go unnoticed. 

The leading scorer for the Wildcats boys’ basketball team announced Tuesday he has received a scholarship offer from the University of Cincinnati. 

That is his first Division I scholarship offer for basketball, but the 6-foot-4 guard was already on the radar of college football coaches as a defensive back. 

His football offer lists already included the Bearcats as well as Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky and Bowling Green. 

Moss replaced Danny Davis as the go-to scoring option last season, averaging 14.9 points per game as Springfield won another district championship. 

He had 47 tackles and two interceptions for the football team last fall.

Interestingly enough, Moss’ announcement comes within a week of two area alumni opting to leave their college basketball teams to try football. 

That includes another Springfield product. 

Darius Harper announced Monday he won’t be playing basketball anymore at Miami University, where he saw his role reduced as a sophomore playing for a new head coach. 

The former Wildcats lineman indicated he is open to joining the RedHawks football team or going elsewhere to continue his career. 

Similarly, Ahmad Wagner, a three-year contributor at Iowa after he starred in both sports at Wayne, could join the Hawkeyes football team next season or transfer and play somewhere else

If Harper or Wagner change schools, they won’t be eligible to play this fall.
