QB Ryan Mossakowski Profile

Clemson offensive coordinator Rob Spence visited with Texas native Ryan Mossakowski earlier this week.

"Coach Spence came by on Monday," Mossakowski said. "I have been talking to him about making a trip to South Carolina to go to their camp. I told him I would give him a call in a few weeks to tell him when I will come down. His visit went good. He made a long trip just to see me."

The Fighting Irish also visited with the top quarterback this week.

Some of the top programs in the nation have already offered the gunslinger.

"Right now I have nine offers. I have offers from Clemson, Auburn, Kansas, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Arizona, Alabama, Kentucky and Oregon," said Mossakowski.

When asked about his current favorites, Mossakowski responded, "Right now I am open."

The Texas standout plans to narrow the field soon.

"I am going to try to make it sooner than later. I just need to visit a lot of the schools. Then depending on how the visits go and how I feel with the coaches I will narrow things down," said Mossakowski.

A verbal commitment should come during his senior season.

"I am going to start taking my official visits early next fall. I will take them early in the season. Then I will make a decision," said Mossakowski.

What will be important to the four-star quarterback when he narrows the field?

"First I will look at education. You never know what will happen on or off the field. Second I will look at the atmosphere with the coaches. I will see how the coaches react with the players and look at the coaching style. Third I will look for a place that feels like home. I will be there for 4 years. It doesn't matter if it is a small town or a big town. It just needs to feel like home," said Mossakowski.

As a junior, Mossakowski completed 264 of 462 passes (57 percent) for 19 touchdowns and also gained 227 yards on 71 rushes for seven additional scores.

When asked about his strengths on the field, Mossakowski responded, "I have to say I've got great vision and great core base mechanics. I see the field well and I'm a playmaker. I'm a big passer and we play a run-and-shoot offense, so I'm always making big plays. I control the offense really well and I have awesome mechanics.

"I'm working on my footwork and trying to get my forty speed better. I run a 4.8 now. Also I'd like to make quicker decisions and study the defenses more."
