Pat Skerry is once again tapping into the transfer market as he landed a commitment from former Wake Forest forward Arnaud William Adala Moto.

The news was first reported by

Adala Moto averaged 6.9 points and 5.2 boards as a sophomore this past season for the Demon Deacons. He’s originally from the D.C. area, having played his high school ball at Episcopal (Va.) and his AAU ball with Team Takeover.

Towson was one of the better mid-major teams in the country the last two years as they rode the wave of high-major transfers that Skerry brought in. Most notably was Jerrelle Benimon, a transfer from Georgetown that was the CAA Player of the Year and arguably the best mid-major player in the country the last two years.

Wake Forest announced that forward Arnaud William Adala Moto will transfer out of the program on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-6 Adala Moto averaged 6.9 points and 5.2 boards as a sophomore, starting 11 of Wake’s 33 games.

“In the short time I have known Arnaud I’ve been able to see what an outstanding young man he is,” said Wake Forest head coach Danny Manning. “He informed us today of his wishes to continue his basketball career elsewhere. We respect his decision and wish him the best in his athletic and educational endeavors.”

Adala Moto was a top 150 recruit in the Class of 2012, one of seven signees that then-head coach Jeff Bzdelik brought in in that recruiting class.
