Former Ole Miss Commit Sets MSU Visit

With the graduation of starter Kellen Davis, MSU has a hole to fill at the position. They are also getting a visit from JC tight end Maurice Graham but the Memphis standout appears to be the type of big physical player the coaching staff feels they can groom into a big-time player.

MEMPHIS, TN - Jamal Mosley was as shocked as anyone to hear that news that the head coach of the team he'd committed to had been fired.

Making matters worse in Mosley's eyes is that the coach who recruited him, Coach Freeze, may not be retained by Houston Nutt, Mississippi's new head coach, who hadn't recruited Mosley at all.

Mosely told Scout.com exclusively that he has decided to schedule an official visit to East Lansing.

"I'll be visiting the weekend of Dec 7-9. I'm being recruited by Coach Staten and Coach Narduzzi. They saw my film and they contacted my coach and they came down and saw me and they've been talking to me for about a month now."

"They came in two weeks ago Coach Staten came and last week, I think it was Wednesday Coach Narduzzi came (down). I know they have a great football program, but that's why I'm coming to visit to find out all about the school."

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound two-star standout caught 29 balls at the tight end position for 394 yards as a junior and caught the eye of many collegiate coaches with his play as a senior.

The Spartans will have to battle Mississippi (Nutt will visit and the Tennessee Volunteers who are also recruiting the talented big man, who also dabbles in basketball.

"There a slight chance (that he might still consider Mississippi), but I want to see what other schools have to offer. It doesn't really bother me, I want to get away from all the destractions but it might bother my family for me to be so far away (from Memphis.)"

Mosley said MSU has not yet offered, but "we're going to work it out when I get up there." The two-sport star is solid academically, placing third in the Southern Region in a national high school marketing competition and 14th in the nation out of 835 teams that competed.
