As one of the state's top junior prospects, Little Rock Christian tight end Dakota Mosley can expect to catch a lot of passes this season.
But the former Farmington player is also looking forward to throwing some great blocks and then watching fellow junior Michael Dyer – who rushed for 2,700 yards last season and is perhaps the state's top player - head to paydirt.
"Spring practice went really good for us and I think we are going to be really good next year," Mosley said. "I think we are going to have a great balance of offense. We have a great quarterback in Griffin Kuhn, some great wide receivers and well, Michael is just Michael. He's great."
Mosley (6-5, 240, 4.9) caught 11 passes for 188 yards and four touchdowns last season for Farmington before making the move to Little Rock.
"They are telling me my role is pretty much going to be the same as it was at Farmington," Mosley said. "I will play a lot of tight end and also be split out some at wide receiver."
Mosley ran a 4.9 in the 40-yard dash testing on Sunday night. It is a time he wants to have down by the end of the summer.
"I am really trying to work hard on my speed," Mosley said. "I am going to the Arkansas Sports Performance Center four times a week."
Although he doesn't have any offers yet, there are plenty of schools showing interest.
"I have talked to Mississippi State and they want me to come out to the camp and I am going to do that in July," Mosley said. "I am also talking to Tulsa, but I am really the most interested in Arkansas."
He certainly is impressed with the Razorbacks' new staff of coaches.
"I really like how the coaches are really intense and trying to bring the best out of each player," Mosley said. "I like how they pass the ball a lot."
