Four-Star Prospect Comments on Visit to AU

One of the state's more highly-regarded football prospects discusses his trip to Auburn and his senior season.

Theodore, Ala.--C.J. Mosley put up huge tackle numbers as a junior and he is doing it again this season for Theodore High School.

In on 176 stops during the 2008 season, the linebacker has already passed the century mark this year with his total up to 105 and counting.

"The season is going well," Mosley tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "Right now we are 7-1 and we are number two in our region."

He notes that Theodore has qualified for a berth in the playoffs as it prepares for a game at Alma Bryant High this week. "It is a rivalry game," he says.

C.J. Mosley is shown at Scout.com Combine earlier this year.

Commenting on how he is playing compared to last year, the senior says, "I feel like I?have improved as a linebacker. I am doing a better job of recognizing what the offense is running, being smarter on the field and being a better leader on and off the field."

Checking in at 6-3, 220 pounds with the quickness to make tackles from sideline to sideline, Mosley notes that he is excited about this year's Theodore team.

"We have as good a chance as anybody to do well in the playoffs," he says. "We have the top defense in the state this year. We have only allowed 80-something points all season.

"Our offense is averaging over 21 points per game," he adds. "As long as our defense keeps playing well and the offense keeps scoring points, we have a chance of going all the way."

This past weekend he took an unofficial visit to check out the Kentucky at Auburn game. "I talked to Coach (Curtis) Luper when I first got up there and I talked to Coach (Gene) Chizik, who told me to make myself at home. He told me to pay attention to the linebackers in the game and see where I could help them at."

Mosley says he thinks Auburn's 4-3 front is well-suited for his style of play and notes that he is definitely interested in Chizik's Tigers. "I have narrowed it down to two colleges," says the linebacker, who is rated as a four-star prospect by Scout.com. "I am just looking at Alabama and Auburn."

Mosley says his next unofficial visit will be to check out the LSU at Alabama game on Nov. 7th

Mosley is shown in an early season game this year.

Commenting on the Kentucky at Auburn game, he says, "Auburn fought hard and it was a close game to the end," he says. "I thought the defense played well at times."

Mosley, who camped at Auburn this summer, has been invited to play in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game that will be played Dec. 12 in Mobile's Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
