Buffs land SoCal athlete

Colorado wasn't really in the picture two months ago when Marques Mosley talked about his leaders in the recruiting process. Yet, a little more than two months later after a visit to Boulder, the versatile athlete has decided CU is the place for him. Get inside for more.

Marques Mosley, a two-star prospect at wide receiver on Scout.com, has decided to be a Colorado Buffalo, joining his Upland, Calif., high school teammate Donta Abron who committed previously.

Mosley visited CU along with Abron and fellow teammate Christian Powell in December. After considering offers from other schools such as Nebraska, Oregon State, Michigan State, Iowa State and Arizona, Mosley picked CU.

It is believed Mosley will play cornerback for the Buffs, but his versatility as an athlete could make him a candidate for time at wide receiver as well.

Mosley finished his senior season with 59 tackles and scored nine touchdowns.

One of Colorado's three committed wide receivers in the 2012 class, Peyton Williams, underwent knee surgery for a torn ACL on Thursday. Williams hopes to be back in time for fall camp in August, but it might be more likely that he redshirts in 2012 to fully heal.

If that situation plays out, and it's impossible to predict at this point, CU could give others an opportunity at wide receiver.

Mosley is the 21st member of the 2012 class at CU and the 11th defensive player, if he ends up on that side of the ball as expected. We will have more on Mosley's commitment soon.
