Mosley Ready for UNC Visit

Jamal Mosley has seen a drastic rise in his recruiting stock since he improved his academic situation. North Carolina is among the schools that are now in strong pursuit of the 6-foot-4, 225-pound tight end from Memphis (Tenn.) Kingsbury.

"[North] Carolina has been recruiting me since last year, but I didn't have an ACT score," Mosley said. "Then I score a [qualifying ACT] recently and we got hooked back up. Coach [Charlie] Williams, he's recruiting me, he told me to come down there for a visit this weekend."

Kentucky, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Southern Miss, and Tennessee are just a handful of schools that have also increased their recruiting efforts of Mosley. Of the large group of options, UNC was among the few singled out for an official visit because of the track record of its head coach.

"I like Butch Davis' history with tight ends and in general in the NFL," Mosley said. "He's an NFL guy. I want to get to the NFL and I think he's the one out of all these schools that can get me there."

In addition to UNC, Mosley has official visits scheduled with Oklahoma State (January 25th) and Southern Miss (February 1st). Last weekend, he visited Kentucky for his first official trip.

Mosley has narrowed his focus to the four schools he has/will officially visit, plus Mississippi. Despite being considered a "soft verbal" to Ole Miss by recruiting websites, Mosley says things are equal between his final five schools.

"I'm still trying to find out the school that's good for me – somewhere I can live at and excel at," Mosley said. "I don't want to pick the wrong school and have to transfer. So I'm taking these visits and seeing what's best for me."

After his final official visit, but before Signing Day, Mosley will announce his collegiate destination.

"[I'll be focusing on] the atmosphere, the community, what's around the school, academics most definitely, and somewhere I can play at least as a sophomore," Mosley.

Each of the members of Mosley's final five have extended a scholarship offer, with the exception of UNC.

"[Williams] was like he wants to offer me, but he said he's going to wait until Sunday to see if I like it or not," Mosley said. "Because he knows I have a lot of schools on my list. He was like, if I like it, I got the offer. I've had the offer; he just wants to make sure I like Chapel Hill."

As a senior, Mosley caught 29 passes for 479 yards and eight touchdowns.
