Talented Alabama LB Enjoys Auburn Junior Day

Auburn had a big group of visitors in for Saturday's Junior Day including one of the top players in Alabama.

Mobile, Ala.--With Auburn needing linebackers, it's no surprise that one of the visitors for junior day on Saturday was Theodore's C.J. Mosley. A big-time linebacker with several big-time offers already, Moseley says his trip to Auburn was a very enjoyable one.

"It went pretty good," the 6-2, 221 Mosley tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I met with coach (Gene) Chizik at the beginning of the day. He told me how the school was religious and how the coaches are a big family. He talked about how much playing time I would get. It was a lot of stuff I wanted to hear."

Holding an early offer from the Tigers, Mosley says that he wasn't sure of what to expect from coach Gene Chizik's new staff, but after having the opportunity to meet with them on Saturday Auburn is definitely in the picture for him.

"Right now I have offers from Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama, Central Florida, Stanford and Duke," Mosley says. "I'm wide open at the moment. I hadn't been to Auburn since coach (James) Willis left, but seeing the program and meeting the new coaches have brought them back up.

"I really didn't know all of the coaches' names, but when I came in I met coach (Curtis) Luper and the rest of the coaches back to back to back," Mosley adds. "They talked to my parents. I think they bonded with my parents more than me. That's a good thing."

With just six scholarship linebackers for the spring and precious little depth heading into next year, Auburn is looking to sign a big group of linebackers for 2010. Mosley says that's something that gives the Tigers a little extra push as he begins to think about possible schools down the road.

"It helps a lot because me being a good linebacker and knowing I would get a lot of playing time," Mosley says. "He was telling me how the defense wasn't going to be that hard so it wouldn't be too much for me to learn. Not much pressure learning the scheme, I would be good to go."

With junior days and spring football fast approaching, Mosley says right now he's focusing on finishing out his junior year strong and getting ready for the summer camp circuit.

"Right now I don't have any more planned," Mosley says. "I'm going to try to go to some camps. I'll get that worked out later on. I know I'm going to Auburn's Junior Elite Camp. I think that's July 18."
