Anthony Mosely Makes Commitment

Tucker (Ga.) speedy wide reciever Anthony Mosley had been rumored to be nearly committed when he stepped on the plane to Lexington last Friday.

He made it official today.

"Just wanted to tell you that I committed, yesterday," Mosley said in a text message to Rob Gidel, who is currently in Ft. Myers taking in the City of Palms Tournament and was unavailable.

The Tucker (Ga.) native has been clocked in the forty-yard dash under a 4.4 more than a handful of times and sports a 21.9 200 meter time in a state meet. His fastest time was at a camp this summer, when he turned in a 4.36 forty-yard dash.

"I know that I am known as a speed guy, but I'd like to be thought of as a speed and possesion receiver," Mosley said prior to his visit. "I pride myself on not dropping the football. I haven't dropped a pass this season."

As a senior, Mosley made 20 catches for 347 yards for a 17.4 yards-per-catch average. He added five touchdowns.

East Carolina, Arkansas, Southern Mississippi, Memphis and Michigan State were the only confirmed offers. Mosley was expected to visit Michigan State in the coming weeks.

Ole Miss, North Carolina, Clemson, Indiana, Illinois and Georgia Tech have also been linked with Tucker as well through the process.

"Wide receiver, that was the main position," Mosley said. "I just started playing football my junior year of high school, so I'm still learning how to play the position, but Joker said that he was more interested in my speed."

A native of Cleveland (Oh.) where his grandmother still resides, Mosley moved to Ellenwood, Ga. when he was a freshmen in high school, the senior was recently crowned homecoming king at Tucker.

"I played in the hardest conference and the 2nd hardest region in the state of Georgia," Mosley said. "I think they see a lot of good things in my future."

Mosley took an official visit to Kentucky this weekend. The senior star had already been to Lexington on an unofficial visit with teammate Brandon Lampkin for the Vanderbilt game. He is one of the most heavily sought after receivers in the Peach State.

"At UK, you consistantly play against the best, every week. I want to be able to play around some of the best athletes and I want to be apart of turning around the program."
