Favorite emerges for TX linebacker

Rockwall-Heath (TX) athlete Ryan Mosby is considering his recruitment options carefully. Mosby, a talented linebacker, is receiving a lot of interest from around the country and during this process one program has emerged ahead of the pack. Which school is in the lead for Ryan Mosby?

There are plenty of schools hot on the trail of TX LB/S Ryan Mosby. Iowa State, Colorado State, Wisconsin, Boise State, Cincinnati, Mississippi, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Louisville are each showing heavy interest.

Currently Iowa State and Colorado State have offered and Louisville also appears close to offering Mosby.

One school, though, stands out from the pack and appears firmly in the driver's seat with Mosby.

"Louisville is my favorite, definitely," said Mosby. "I love the Cardinals. I'm just flattered that they really like me. It is just a great college and Brian Brohm came from there, Michael Bush came from there. I always watched them play West Virginia and teams like Cincinnati."

Mosby was supposed to come up to Louisville's camp last weekend but the trip never materialized. Louisville has not yet extended an offer and that trip was going to help in his evaluation process as it would have been a chance for Louisville coaches to see Mosby live. Mosby said that Louisville will probably be his first official visit in the fall.

'Beast,' as he is known on the football field, is being recruited as a defensive athlete by Louisville. Mosby said that the Louisville coaching staff has not told him a specific position he would be playing. Assistant Tony Alford is heading up Mosby's recruitment.

Mosby, coming off an impressive season, recorded 10 sacks, 23 tackles for loss, and 75 solo tackles as a junior.

Despite a strong junior campaign, Mosby says he still has a couple of things to work on.

"I need to work on my explosiveness and I need to get a tad faster also," said Mosby.

He feels there are a lot of positives to his game as well. "I would definitely say the strength of my game is my speed, quickness, and sure tackling. And I am a smart player too."

Ryan says that he plans to take all five official visits, but if the right school comes along he will not hesitate to commit.
