St. Bonaventure coach Mark Schmidt sees new transfer addition Matt Mobley as a key option in eventually filling the shoes of shooting guard Marcus Posley.
Bona on Thursday officially announced the signing of Mobley, a 6-foot-2 guard who was the leading scorer at Central Connecticut State last season. He will sit out the 2015-16 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
Posley, Bona's leading scorer last season, is entering his senior year.
"We are really fortunate that Matt has chosen to join our program," Schmidt said in a release. "Matt is a proven Division I player. He's a scorer who can really put the ball in the basket in a number of ways. He can shoot threes, he can take people off the bounce and he can get to the line. When Marcus Posley graduates, we hope that Matt can fill some of that void."
Mobley, who is from Worcester, Mass., spent the past two years at Central Connecticut State. This season, he ranked third in the Northeast Conference in scoring at 17.2 points per game and was named the NEC's Most Improved Player as well as to the second team all-NEC. Mobley averaged 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game and shot 36 percent (74-207) from three-point range and 75 percent at the free throw line. His four 30-point games were the most of any NEC player.
