QB Prospect Looking Forward To Auburn Visit

Alabama's Mr. Football Clint Moseley talks about visiting his future home on the Plains for the weekend.

Leroy, Ala.--A commitment to the Auburn Tigers and Alabama's Mr. Football for 2008, quarterback Clint Moseley is busy getting ready for the upcoming baseball season as he tries to lead the Bears to a sixth state title in his high school career.

Up first though is an official visit to Auburn this weekend to check out Gene Chizik's program. Moseley says he's excited about his weekend scheduled on the Plains.

"It's just a chance for me to kind of check things out," Moseley tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I'll be able to get a feel for what I'm going to be around for the next four or five years. I can get to know the whole coaching staff and all that."

First targeted and recruited for the Tigers by former AU coach James Willis, Moseley has started to build a relationship with Chizik and new offensive coordinator and quarterback Gus Malzahn. He says right now that is going well and getting better every day.

"Coach Willis left and I hated it because he's the one that started recruiting me," Moseley says. "I liked him and all, but I've talked with Coach Malzahn since he's been there and it doesn't affect me at all. I'm still committed and I'm going to Auburn. His leaving didn't affect me."

What has happened in the process is a kinship with Malzahn. Recruited by the former Tulsa and Arkansas coordinator immediately after his arrival at Auburn, Moseley says the two have talked a lot already. He plans to make even more time to talk with Malzahn over the weekend, something he thinks is huge for his future with the Tigers.

"I have built a pretty good relationship with him since I committed and even before," Moseley says. "I'm going to be with him every day for four or five years. It's big having a good relationship with him. It's tough going somewhere even when you do have a good relationship with the offensive coordinator. If you don't have a good relationship it's going to make the tough even tougher."

Already committed to the Tigers, Moseley says one of his biggest jobs on his visit will be to help sell the Auburn program to the players expected in for official visits. With top offensive prospects such as Rueben Randle and David Oku among the expected guests, Moseley says he'll try to let them know they're wanted without being pushy.

Winning his third state championship in football in December, Moseley now moves on to baseball looking for number three in that sport. Helped by outstanding junior baseball prospect Phillip Ervin, Moseley says the Bears should have a good team again in 2009.

"It's going good," Moseley says. "We're looking very good right now. We've got a lot of power, a bunch of good hitters. That's going to be our strength like it has the last two years. We've got to have some pitchers come around and one outfielder to step up. We're missing one starting spot, but we've got some guys competing for it."

In addition to Moseley, Auburn has a solid group of weekend visitors expected on the Plains:
