Additionally, the Montreal kicker had a sentimental reason for opting for the Bruins.

“The biggest thing about UCLA is that I have a lot of family in California,” explained Molson of his decision.  “My uncle lives 30 minutes away from the campus.”

“We have a house down in Palm Desert, so it is very convenient for my parents and grandparents to come down and visit me.”
