Donahue Signs Florida Guard Gabe Moton

Eagles hoops fans were anxiously waiting for some good news on the Class of 2010 recruiting front, and new coach Steve Donahue finally delivered. Donahue has signed St. Petersburg guard Gabe Moton, who originally signed on with the Air Force Academy.

Moton, a first-team, all-county selection, pulled out from a commitment to the Air Force to sign with Boston College.

"It's a great school with strong academics," Moton said. "And it's in the Atlantic Coast Conference, which is a big plus for me."

This past season, Moton averaged 17 points, five assists and five rebounds per game and helped lead the Green Devils to the Class 6A region final. He initially accepted an appointment to the Air Force over offers from Cornell, Denver, Tennessee-Martin, Tennessee Tech and West Point.

But Boston College became interested in him in April when Steve Donahue left Cornell to become coach of the Eagles. Moton took a trip to Boston College about three weeks ago and signed the following week.

Moton will likely be put into a position to contribute right away for Donahue and the Eagles. BC was down to three scholarship guards (Biko Paris, Reggie Jackson and Dallas Elmore) after the offseason departures of Sanders and Heslip.
