Louisville checks out N.J. '16 guard

The University of Louisville basketball staff took a look at some new prospects this past weekend, including Jersey City, N.J., St. Anthony combo guard Jagan Mosely. He has 11 scholarship offers and is hoping to visit Louisville soon.

Jersey City, N.J., St. Anthony combo guard Jagan Mosely was planning on making a visit to the University of Louisville this month.

The plans changed for the 6-foot-3 Mosely, who said during the Nike EYBL stop in Lexington this week that he plans on making the trip to U of L soon.

U of L assistant coach Mike Balado and director of basketball operations David Padgett both watched Mosley several times with his Playaz Basketball Club. He's averaging 13.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 steals in eight games this spring.

"I am trying to make another date," Mosely said of U of L. "The coaches from Louisville told me they want to see me more aggressive in these games.

"Louisville is one of the top five schools in college basketball, the history. I really like what I hear from coach (Kenny) Johnson and Louisville."

Mosely said U of L first saw him during a high school game this past season and then Johnson watched him in Hampton, Va., earlier this month with the Playaz.

While he's shooting 55.5 percent from the field in the EYBL, Mosely has hit just 4 of 14 from three-point range and 70.6 percent from the free-throw line.

"I need to work on my pull up jump shot and my ballhandling," Mosely said. "I know I can get better and I am working on what I need to work on to get better."

Georgia Tech and Rhode Island are the latest offers for Moseley, who also has offers from Rutgers, Boston U., Fairfield and several others.

Mosely said distance won't be a factor and at this point "there's nobody in the lead or anything like that," noting all the schools recruiting him are "equal."

"BU has been showing me the most interest since day one," he said. "They were my first offer and I like them, my brother plays there. But I'm open right now."
