Official visit enough to convince CB Moxey

By Corey Long

Defensive back Jonathan Moxey (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla./Dwyer) had Boise State in his top three going into his official visit to the program over the weekend. Did a good trip out west push the Broncos ahead of Florida Atlantic and Bowling Green?

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Moxey committed to Boise State late Tuesday night after a visit from the members of Chris Petersen’s coaching staff.

“I felt like Boise had the best opportunity for me to succeed on and off the field in college,” Moxey said. “They are losing two starters in the secondary to the draft, and the coaches want me to go in there to compete for a spot at cornerback.

“It’s a great coaching staff there, too. Coach Petersen is a terrific man. It’s a winning program, and I’m very excited.”

Moxey took an official visit to Bowling Green on Jan. 11 but says he is shutting down his recruitment with this verbal commitment.
