Marshall Moses Rising

Marshall Moses' biggest problem wasn't necessarily on the court. It was all the distractions off the court. However, the 6-foot-7 junior has switched schools - and the results are impressive.

Marshall Moses needed a change. He got exactly what he was looking for when he transferred from Aiken High (S.C.) to be with his summer teammate, Eric Wallace, at Glenn High in North Carolina.

Now Moses is thriving – and we're not talking about his on-court progress, either.

The 6-foot-7, 220-pound junior has 4 B's and an A this far in his five classes this semester.

``It's going great," Moses said. "I'm glad I made the change. I'm more focused than I was before and now I'm not worried about rankings and any of that other stuff."

``Before I got to Glenn, I had never gotten an A – not since elementary school," Moses said. "It feels good. Before I got here, I was lazy and didn't want to do the work."

It's a good bet that Wallace was a positive influence on Moses – since Wallace excels in the classroom.

``Eric's been a big motivation for me," Moses said. "He's been more than a friend; he's been like an older brother to me. Eric won't allow me not to do my homework."

Moses said that Virginia Tech has shown the most interest – and the Hokies, along with Florida, are his co-leaders.

``I'm still open, though," Moses said.
