4-Star LB Prospect Mosley Taking His Time

Six-foot-two-inch, 215-pound linebacker C.J. Mosley talks about the recruiting process and some of the schools he is looking at plus video highlights are featured in this report.

Mobile, Ala.—Theodore linebacker C.J. Mosley has been taking the recruiting process slowly for a prospect with 18 scholarship offers. He has a list of favorites—Auburn, Alabama, LSU and Stanford—but isn't in any rush.

"Right now, I don't have an idea when I'll decide," Mosley tells Inside the Auburn Tigers.

Mosley visited Auburn in spring and his only summer visit was to Alabama.

"The only place I went was Alabama. That's it," he says. "I went there last month and it went well. It was actually a seven-on-seven camp and a couple of my teammates wanted me to go with them. I just went around talking to the coaches, that's it.

"Mostly I like the academics," he adds of Alabama. "The facilities are nice and the program is going real well right now."

Mosley is shown at the Scout.com Southeast Elite Camp in April.

Mosley is planning on going to a senior one-day camp at Auburn on July 18.

"I've been there before," he adds of Auburn. "My most recent one was their junior days. They have a good campus life, too. I like all of their coaching staff from when I met them, and I like what Gene Chizik has going for Auburn right now.

"After Auburn I'm going to try to get back to Alabama camp," he adds. "I'm not sure about that one. I don't know if I'll be able to make it or not."

Clemson, Florida State, Ole Miss and Marshall are the most recent schools to offer Mosley, who hasn't decided on his five official visits. Stanford, which has commitments for the class of 2010 from 14 different states, is likely to get one of them.

"They're going to try to give me an official visit so I can come down during the school year," he notes.

"I know they haven't been too deep at linebacker and they don't have many commitments there," Mosley says of Stanford. "The main thing is the academics. They're one of the best in the country. Those are the main things that have me liking Stanford."

The closest college on Mosley's radar is LSU, less than three hours from his home town of Theodore, Ala.

"They play solid defense," he notes of LSU. "When you watch them you know their defense is going to dominate. I get along with the coaching staff really well. I have kind of a good relationship with Coach (Ron) Cooper. I've known him for a while. They said they're not too deep at the linebacker position either."

Asked what he's looking for in a school, Mosley responds, "Campus life, academics and the depth chart."
