Quarterback Gets Visit From the Tigers

Interest in a senior quarterback who put up big numbers continues to grow with Auburn making a visit to talk to the 2009 prospect.

Leroy, Ala.--Things have been busy for quarterback Clint Moseley in the last few weeks.

First he won his third state championship for the Bears, then he was offered a scholarship by former Auburn coach James Willis of Auburn, then he took an official visit to Marshall last weekend.

This week Moseley learned that Willis was not retained on the staff by Auburn's new head coach, Gene Chizik, making for some anxious moments for Moseley.

Offered a scholarship with the assumption that the new coach would likely honor the pledge, Moseley says now he's just waiting to see what's going to happen after getting a visit from Auburn's Joe Whitt of Auburn on Wednesday.

"I haven't heard from Coach Chizik, but Joe Whitt came by my school today," Moseley tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "We watched film and then he took some with him. It's coming up on a dead period and they can't see me after Saturday.

"They're going to see as many people as they can until Saturday and then take our films and watch them," Mosley says. "He said he would let me know something in the next week or so."

Even though he's not sure is his offer will stand under Chizik, Moseley says it's a good feeling to be one of the early players talked to by the staff.

"I didn't really know what to think when I heard everybody had gotten fired," Moseley says of Tommy Tuberville's staff. "I figured they wouldn't know anything about me because Coach Willis was the one recruiting me, but it's a good feeling. I don't know what the situation is completely, but they're going to let me know if it's still there or they're taking it away because they are re-evaluating everything.

"I know they are really busy," he adds. "For them to fit me in there is pretty exciting."

While he hasn't spoke with Chizik yet, Moseley says that he remembers some things about Auburn's new coach and knows he's been successful in his career.

"I don't know him at all," Moseley says. "I know everybody has been criticizing him and been real hard on him. A lot of the Auburn fans around here don't think it's that bad of a hire. He was the defensive coordinator when they were undefeated so how bad could he be. He was at Texas when they won it. How bad could he be? He must be a good coach or he wouldn't be at an SEC school, especially Auburn."

Moseley finished his high school football career with another state championship.

Moseley says in addition to Auburn he's looking at Marshall, Arkansas State and South Alabama. Recently he's also hearing from South Carolina, Southern Miss and Troy as well. He says his visit to Marshall went well, but he's going to wait to make a decision.

As a senior Moseley threw for 3,695 yards and 39 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He also added nearly 700 yards on the ground and 15 touchdowns. He had a big finish winning Most Valuable Player honors in the 2A state championship game as Leroy outscored Sulligent 41-8.
