Mosley to move around?

Charles Mosley took his second trip to Alabama in a two-week span on Saturday, and he learned more of his projected position should he choose the Crimson Tide.

Brighton (Tenn.) standout lineman Charles Mosley visited Alabama in early April while in the state for a camp, and it helped to solidify the Crimson Tide's status as his top school early in the recruiting process.

The four-star was back in Tuscaloosa over the weekend for A-Day, but it wasn't as easy a decision as one would imagine.

"I went up there for the spring game, but it was a hard decision," he admitted. "Tennessee, Auburn and Alabama all had it on the same day - but I chose Alabama."

Mosley checked out his top school again because of some chatter his coaches at Brighton have fueled in what position he may play at the next level though FOX Sports NEXT/Scout.com considers the 6-foot-5, 340 pounder as a defensive tackle.

"My coaches say I'm an offensive lineman now, and they think I'm an offensive lineman in college too," he said. "But it's wherever they want to put me, I really don't care.

"I just want to play the game of football, if they want me to do offense I can do offense and if they want me to play defense I can do defense. Wherever they think I'm better."

"The Alabama coaches are saying defense, but they really don't know either," Mosley added.

With that in mind, he was looking at the other side of the trenches on Saturday.

"They have all those people, like Chance Warmack, leaving in the draft and stuff," he said. "I wanted to see how they would stack up, and they were still huge.

"They look basically the same."

"I was basically just looking at the O-line, seeing how they were going to look," he continued on A-Day. "They still haven't decided where they are going to put me at. I was checking out how they look without Warmack and with the Kwandijo's.

"Their belly was hanging out."

Before the game, Mosley took some time to check out more of the Tuscaloosa campus.

"They were busy," he said of the coaches. "So I took the time to walk around campus and stuff. The campus is always nice."

Despite the position questions, a few parts of the Saturday visit really stood out to Mosley.

"Watching the captains ceremony was the best part," he said. "I thought that was real neat how those players will get to be remembered forever along with the other great players because of how they led their team.

"Also, seeing them pack out the stadium for the spring game. I'm just a little-old Tennessean, I'm not used to seeing that."

Mosley is considered the No. 12 defensive tackle nationally at this time.
