Recruiting: Jamal Mosley Down To Two

One of Oklahoma State's final targets for its 2008 recruiting class returned home from his final visit on Super Sunday knowing better who he was going to root for in the Super Bowl than what school he is going to attend and catch passes for in his college career.

"I know I'm going for the Patriots," said Jamal Mosley, the Memphis, (Kingsbury), Tenn. tight end, after returning home from a short visit to Ole Miss this weekend.

Mosley had been committed to Ole Miss early in recruiting but broke it off after the coaching change and really liked what he saw from Oklahoma State and Kentucky.

"It was all right," said Mosley, 6-4 and 230 pounds, of the visit to Ole Miss. "I didn't go until Saturday because I had a basketball game. (Mosley is a standout on the hardwood at Kingsbury.)

"It was a different visit in they didn't have me do a lot of the tours and stuff because I had been there and done that at camp and on junior day. I mainly hung with the coaches and players. These coaches are different (from the previous Ole Miss staff). The other coaches, it was like they were put together to do a job, but these coaches have been together a long time and they are more like family. It is a better group and they have better chemistry."

Mosley, who caught 24 passes for 479 yards and 7 touchdowns this past season, made it sound convincing that Ole Miss may be back in the lead. He initially said he was hoping to decide by Tuesday between Ole Miss, Oklahoma State and Kentucky. Then he kind of dismissed Kentucky.

"It really is Ole Miss or Oklahoma State," he said. "I want to decide by Tuesday but I'm not sure. I like everything about OKlahoma State, the coaches, the school, the facilities, the players, the offense ... everything except the distance. Kentucky was good too except the distance, but Oklahoma State was better. I have to decide between OSU and Ole Miss."

Mosley said he would give us a call on Tuesday, if and when he decides. Otherwise, nervous coaches in Stillwater and Oxford, Miss., might be left to wait in front of the fax machine on Wednesday, which they will do anyway.
