Mosley Talks About Nebraska Visit

Marques Mosley from Upland (Calif.) was a surprise visitor that Big Red Report was able to find out about on Thursday morning. Mosley, a two-way standout for Upland as a receiver and as a defensive back, said that the Husker staff like him as an athlete. What did Mosley think about his trip to Nebraska this weekend?

The Nebraska staff hosted Christian Powell from Upland (Calif.) and also brought in his teammate, Marques Mosley, for a visit as well. Mosley said that the fans in Lincoln caught him a little off-guard.

"I liked being with the team on Saturday before the game," Mosley said. "I liked being part of that behind the scenes in the locker room. I also liked the fans in Lincoln.

"The fans in Nebraska are very passionate about their football team. I can't explain it. They are very into the game and into their team."

One of the things that Mosley said impressed him the most was the tunnel walk. He thought the team was immediately behind him and the other recruits, but it was just them when they were walking through.

"Oh man, the tunnel walk was nuts. I thought the team was behind us because they were screaming at us, they knew our names and knew that we were all recruits."

The Nebraska staff likes Mosley as an athlete, but he did say that he spent the most time with defensive backs coach Corey Raymond. It's not a coincidence that Mosley thinks he's a better fit on defense in Lincoln too.

"Nebraska likes me as an athlete. They said that I could play either in the secondary or on offense. I feel like my best fit at Nebraska would probably be on defense.

"I think that I would be a good fit on defense. I thought that I could bring some speed to the team and also could help out being more of an open field tackler."

One Sunday Mosley said that there was a big tour that showed him everything there is to know about Nebraska. He said that he really liked the idea that Nebraska stresses academics to all of their athletes.

"I just liked walking around and learning about everything from academics to nutrition to strength conditioning. I love how they really stress the academic side of being a student athlete."

Still looking for a Nebraska offer, Mosley said that the Nebraska staff plans to stay in touch throughout the rest of the year.

"I would say like a "9". It was a good experience for me. I wish they could have come away with a win...They said that they were going to stay in touch with me."
