UCLA receiver transfers to Montana
By the Missoulian, July 10, 2010
The Montana Grizzlies and head coach Robin Pflugrad picked up a drop-down receiver this week in Antwan Moutra, who according to the Daily Breeze in Torrance, Calif., is tranferring from UCLA to Montana.
Moutra was a standout at Culver City in 2007, catching 74 passes for a school record 1,448 yards as a senior, with 13 touchdowns - including an 11-catch, 232-yard performance in the playoffs.
He was recruited heavily by Bowl Subdivision programs, including Oregon, where Pflugrad was then an assistant. Moutra chose UCLA, but after playing 10 games as a true freshman, he appeared in just four last fall for the Bruins. He caught one pass each season.
Greg Goodyear, an assistant coach at Culver City, confirmed the transfer, adding that Pflugrad had said Moutra has a chance to play right away for one of the top programs in the Football Championship Subdivision.
"They sell more season tickets there than they do at UCLA," Goodyear said. "Their stadium holds just 27,000, but they sell out every game.
"He loved how the people reacted to the team. They're rabid, and he loved that."
