QB From Texas Plans to Visit Auburn

Frisco, Tex.--Highly-touted quarterback prospect Ryan Mossakowski is taking a trip to Auburn this weekend for the university's annual A-day spring football game.

The 6-5, 200-pound high school junior from Centennial High School, which is located just outside of Dallas, says he is excited about his trip and is eager to learn more about Coach Tommy Tuberville's Tigers.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the environment around Auburn," Mossakowski says. "I am also seeing Coach (Tony) Franklin," he says of Auburn's offensive coordinator and quarterback coach.

"I've known Coach Franklin for about a year to a year and a half so I have a pretty decent relationship with him," the QB points out. "I'm looking forward to seeing him.

"I'm looking forward to more football and seeing our offense run at the collegiate level–we run the same offense," he adds. "I'm really looking forward to meeting all of the coaches and getting to know them and seeing how they are."

While football is important, the QB says that is just one of the parts of Auburn he plans to check out on his trip this weekend. "I'm planning on majoring in communication," Mossakowski says. "That's kind of a big deal for me."

The two-sport star is in the midst of baseball season and plans on playing that sport this summer as well, even though he also plans to attend several football camps. This spring he has already visited Texas A&M and will visit Oklahoma on the 5th of April. He plans to travel to Kansas on April 12 and Nebraska on April 19.

He also plans more trips later this year. "I want to try to go to as many camps as possible this summer," Mossakowski says. "I'm pretty sure I'm signed up for a two-day camp at Auburn that Coach Franklin is going to hold for quarterbacks. I'm going try to get into the Nike Combine, but I also play baseball in the summer and we play just about every day or every other day so it is going to be kind of tough for me to make some trips."

Mossakowski describes himself as a "pure-passer" who loves to throw a football and make reads and audibles if necessary. He notes that he believes the offense his Centennial High team runs is preparing him to be a AB on the next level.

"Right now I have five offers," Mossakowski says. "They are from (Texas) A&M, Nebraska, Kansas, Arizona and, obviously, Auburn."

Mossakowski's says his familiarity with Franklin's offense does not make Auburn the front-runner for the talented Texan, although he is definitely interested. He has not named any favorites just yet. "The only way that would be an advantage would be if I do end up going to Auburn, I would have an edge on everybody else knowing the offense to a certain extent," he says.

Going into his senior season, the QB has passed for 6,088 yards and 36 touchdowns and rushed for 539 yards and 18 more scores.
