Interview transcript

How'd you get your offer? Which coach contacted you?

"It was the defensive back coach Rick Smith," Moseley said. "I go to middle-college, when I walked into Dudley he was there. We watched my highlight tape and he offered me on the spot."

What do you know about ECU?

"I know it's a pretty good school and I've seen NFL prospects come from there. I've been there before to visit a friend. My parents live in New Bern so I've been close to Greenville plenty of times."

So you haven't been on an official visit yet?

"I haven't," Moseley said. "I plan on coming to the camp on June 10th. I'm excited to see what type of defense they like to run."

What are your offers so far? Do you think more are on the way?

"I got offered from (N.C.) A&T last year," Moseley said. "I visited UNC Charlotte and I'm going to N.C. State camp, both of those schools have talked about offering me soon. Kentucky just jumped on last week; a coach came out and watched my tape. He said he's going to give it to the head coach and I should hear from them soon."

What do you plan on studying when you get to college?

"I want to study to become a mechanical engineer or a computer engineer." Moseley said.

Talk about winning the Metro 4-A All-Conference football team this season, how does that feel?

"It felt great to see my hard work pay off, I'm glad I got recognized for helping my team. We had a bunch of guys make it at a lot of different positions."

I watched your junior tape. You start out catching touchdowns at receiver and running the ball, to playing cornerback and batting passes. Was this a planned change? Talk about it.

"This was my first year playing corner(back)," Moseley said. "I started at quarterback for Dudley as a freshman, until an upperclassman came in. I really like the switch because I'm a physical guy. I played receiver at times because I could get past most of the cornerbacks we played."

What's your 40-yard dash time? Are you going to any camps or combines this summer?

"I haven't been timed yet, but my coach thinks I'll run somewhere around 4.3 or 4.4," Moseley said. "I'm going to camps at ECU and N.C. State. I'll also be going to The Shrine Bowl on June 1st."

Talk about yourself off of the football field.

"I'm a friendly guy and I love my family. I like to make people happy and love to work out and lift all the time."

What is your interest in ECU?

"They're at the top of my list," Moseley said. "They were my first offer which was flattering and until I get more offers they'll stay at the top."

When do you plan on making your decision?

"Right now I'm not sure when I will commit; I would say the middle of next season would be a good time to. I want to focus on games, especially for the second half of the season."

Final thoughts

Emmanuel Moseley is a play-making cornerback with great closing speed and versatility. Aside from his N.C. A&T offer last year, ECU is the only other school to offer Moseley. He is starting to get more attention from college coaches as summer approaches, and he could add more offers soon. Moseley has N.C. State, UNC Charlotte and Kentucky pursuing him, he agreed to give me a call after his visit to ECU.
