Jovon Moses Chooses A School

A report on the commitment by Jovon Moses by reporter Brian Towey ...

Jovon Moses has made his pick. The 6-foot-7, 220 pound power forward from Genesis One Christian School in Mendenhall, Mississippi, will play his college ball in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

"I committed to Duquesne," said Moses. "I'm going to sign tomorrow. I took an official visit there last week. Everything was good. I didn't take any other visits, but I didn't want to pass this opportunity up."

Moses had also considered a scholarship offer from Middle Tennessee State. Illinois State had shown some late interest, among others.

"Mainly, I fit in well there," said Moses. "Because their style of play is the same as ours: they like to run and gun. Coach Everhart lets you play free. I won't just have to just go to the block, but I'll be able to play on the wing also."

Moses' biggest strength is his ability to rebound the basketball. He has a strong frame and has improved his body over the past two years. He is at his best when he stays aggressive and active.

Moses will become the fourth Brooklyn native on the Duquesne roster, joining Shawn James, Kojo Mensah, and Robert Mitchell. Originally a member of the class of 2005, he attended Automotive High School in Brooklyn. He is in his second year at Genesis One under Coach Victor Evans.

Jovon played with Doc Nicelli's Student-Athlete Broncos on the AAU circuit.
