BC lands Florida guard Moton

June 22, 2010 - 3:17 am

Gabe Moton, a guard from St. Petersburg, Fla., pulled out of his commitment to Air Force to sign with Boston College and new coach Steve Donahue. Moton had been recruited by Donahue at Cornell but had chosen Air Force over the Ivy League school as well as Denver, Tennessee-Martin, Tennessee Tech and West Point. Moton visited BC in early June and found it to be a good fit. "It's a great school with strong academics," Moton told the St. Petersburg Times. "And its in the Atlantic Coast Conference, which is a big plus for me." Moton averaged 17 points, five assists and five rebounds per game last season in leading his team to the Class 6A region final.
