Has Jennings' De-Commitment Affected Mosley?
"I doesn't really affect me. Terrence Jennings didn't make my decision for me. I'm not real worried about Terrence Jennings, for real, because I've got to take care of myself. It would be great if he comes back and decides to go to Maryland, but if not, we'll go and find another route," Mosley told TurtleSportsReport.com.
Since committing to Maryland in mid-August, Mosley has been focusing on getting ready for his senior season and keeping his academics in good order. He plays full-court every day for a few hours and follows that with 200 jumpshots, in addition to some drills designed to increase his quickness. Clearly, he's trying to put himself in position to play meaningful minutes next winter as a college freshman. And he couldn't be happier with where he'll be.
"I'm just waiting to get up on campus and work hard from day one. I don't take no days off," said Mosley, who talks twice weekly with Terps assistant Keith Booth.
"He thinks I can help in many different ways … He thinks we'll have a shot to win a national championship," he said.
Mosley has not yet had a chance to touch base with some of the area's top 2009 recruits, but is planning to check out some Montrose Christian games and talk to the three standout juniors there, especially blue-chipper Isaiah Armwood. He also is in good shape academically, and no one around him anticipates any holdbacks there.
"School's pretty good, I can't complain," he said. "I've got everything lined up. I'm good to go for next year."
Mosley said he's received lots of positive feedback in Baltimore since making his announcement and is looking forward to seeing Terps fans in the stands during games this year. He also said his father Richard, who was most vocal during the recruitment that he preferred Maryland, is still on a high from the commitment.
"We went to the West Virginia [football] game and he was still hyped up about it," Mosley said. "he said I made a good decision."
