Offers coming in for Mosley

The elite quarterbacks in the Class of 2016 are already being identified. Two schools well-known for their triple option attack are in hot pursuit of Miller Mosley, who in two years as a starter at St. Paul's Episcopal School (Mobile, Ala.) has gone 25-2 and won a Class 5A Alabama State Championship in 2014. He spoke with GoMids.com on how his recruiting is beginning to take shape.

"I've been offered by the Naval Academy and Old Dominion," Miller Mosley said. "I also have serious interests from Yale, Harvard and Georgia Tech. Southern Miss has talked to me too, but I don't know yet how interested they are.

"When Navy was recruiting my teammate (Walter Little), they told my head coach to let me know I was offered. I have spoken to them over the phone since then. I love the school from everything I heard about it. I'm a little hesitant right now with the commitment after college, but it's something I'm definitely considering.

"I think I'd be a good fit in the triple option. I'm not the biggest quarterback at 5-foot-11 and a half, 178-pounds, but my greatest strength is my ability my tremendous quickness and speed. It's an offense I definitely think I could adjust to and do well in."

In his first two years as the varsity starter St. Paul's Episcopal, Mosley has broken many of Jacob Coker's school passing records and has A.J. McCarron's in sight for next season. In 2014, he had 2,132 yards in total yards with 33 touchdowns rushing and passing. He was a 60-percent passer (80 for 133) for 1375 yards and 17 touchdowns and carried the ball 63 times for 757 yards and 16 touchdowns on the perfect 15-0 season.

"We run a single-back I-formation," he said. "We only averaged about 12 throws per game last year. I did have some big games though. In the game against UMS-Wright, our big rival, I had 279 total yards and accounted for all five of our touchdowns. I had pretty good games in the first two rounds of the playoffs and a good state championship game with two touchdown passes."

In the off-season, Mosley has been working one-on-one with David Morris, a former Ole Miss quarterback who runs QB Country. Mosley also is competing this spring in indoor and outdoor track. He has a personal best of 10.91 in the 100-meter dash. A high academic student, Mosley reports a 3.8 GPA and is serving as the class president.
