Visit to Auburn Impressed Juco Standout

Brandon Mosley talks about what he likes about the Auburn football program following his official visit to check out the Tigers.

Coffeyville, Kan.--Brandon Mosley says his official visit to Auburn was a memorable one and Coach Gene Chizik's Tigers are squarely in the mix for the junior college sophomore.

"Auburn is probably number one," said Mosley, who is originally from Jefferson, Ga. However, he added that it is too early to make a decision on his college choice even though he will graduate in December and enroll in a Division I?program in January.

"I have a couple of more visits I am going to take," said Mosley, who plans to check out Ole Miss and Florida State and possibly another college in the coming weeks.

Mosley, a two-way player at Coffeyville Community College, spent most of his time at tight end as a sophomore. He also played on the defensive line.

Auburn is recruiting the 6-6, 275-pounder to play offensive tackle. Mosley's player host, Vance Smith, has made the same position change for the Tigers.

"It is what I am thinking about, too, going from tight end to tackle," Mosley said. "He (Smith) told me about it. They do a good job with helping you gain weight and all of that good stuff, too.

"At the beginning I didn't like it, but now I?have been thinking about it and talking a lot about it with the coaches it sounds like a good idea, actually."

"Everybody told me before I will be an average tight end or a good tight end, but being athletic and big they said I can be a great tackle," Mosley added.

Mosley and the other prospects in for official visits watched an exciting game on Friday as Alabama escaped Jordan-Hare Stadium with a 26-21 victory. "It was awesome, it was intense," he said of the game day atmosphere in Auburn. "I had a great time."

Mosley said he had been to a few SEC games as a high school recruit at the University of Georgia, but had never seen an atmosphere compared to what he saw on Friday.

Commenting on what else stood out on his official visit, Mosley said, "The atmosphere, the fans, the coaches and the great recruiting staff stood out. I enjoyed the players, too. I feel like I can fit in pretty good there."
