Running back ruled ineligible

The Wildcats' 2002 recruiting class has changed a little bit before the start of training camp. One player has been ruled ineligible, one player is still in limbo and a new face is set to join the team. Grades have plagued a couple of players, while another who was the subject of speculation is set to be in town before the end of next week.

Running back Ra'Shawn Moseley failed to qualify. The San Antonio prep standout will most likely enroll at Butler Community College in an effort to gain his eligibility. Last season Moseley rushed for 1,523 yards and 18 touchdowns. He had 389 yards in one game. Moseley was most likely a candidate to redshirt this season due to the glut of young running backs on the roster.

The case of Marlon Brisco is not as clear. As of now Brisco appears ineligible, but it is believed that he has an undiagnosed learning disability. The defensive end prospect is still being tested to see if he has a disability and could still enroll. Brisco was thought to be in the mix at defensive end along with a number of other young players.

One player who is eligible is Carl Tuitavuki. The junior college defensive tackle has completed his coursework at Ricks College and will be moving to Tucson in the next few days. The 320-pound lineman is expected to pay immediate dividends as a run stopper. Tuitavuki was originally set to enroll at the spring semester but was denied enrollment in January due to incomplete coursework.

The Wildcats have also added another player to the class. Safety Adam Moro of Blue Ridge High School will join the team in August. The former high school linebacker won back-to-back state titles with Blue Ridge. He was first team All-State as a linebacker and punter and was second team as a running back. He should provide depth at strong safety, a position with all new comers.
