The following information was revealed during our interview with Chris Mosby:
What are your strengths at linebacker? "I think in high school, my size helps me out a lot. My speed, mostly my lateral movement, gives me the ability to make plays from sideline to sideline. That is probably my biggest attribute, my lateral quickness. I also shed blocks in short yardage situations."
What most are you working on for the next level? "Right now, as the season picks up, my intangibles in reading the offenses and reacting quicker. I need to adjust on the run better. Of course, you always need to keep getting stronger and faster."
How long have you been starting for Christian Brothers? "This will be my fourth year."
What were your stats as a junior? "I only played in five games. In tackles, I had 60 to 70 tackles. I had five sacks, and I am not sure on the rest of the stats."
What type of injury did you sustain? "I tore my MCL. It was in the 4th game of my season. I came back in the second to last game. We lost in the 1st round of the playoffs. We just had so many people hurt."
What are some awards you have won in your career? "My freshman year, I was Honorable Mention All-State at DE. My sophomore and junior seasons, I made All-State and All-Metro. I have won a few awards in basketball too. I was named All-League and All-District my sophomore and junior seasons."
Which camps did you attend this summer? "I went to Ole Miss, Alabama, Tennessee, and Virginia."
Which camp was the best? "Out of all of the camps I went to, Ole Miss was the most impressive. It was longer and you got more for your money. Coach Orgeron killed us. It was a great instructional camp. I was surprised to not hear from them after I went to their camp because I thought I did well. I might not have timed well, but I definitely did well in my drills. It was the most impressive camp out of all of them though."
When was the last time you heard from Ole Miss? "I have gotten a few letters but not a whole lot. I just do not think they are that interested in me."
Which colleges are you hearing from the most? "I have scholarship offers from Memphis, Wake Forest, Arkansas, and Kentucky. I am hearing a lot from them. I am getting a lot of letters from Virginia, like every day. I am also getting some letters from Alabama and USM. I get letters from Tennessee and Auburn, just not as much as the other schools, but they are recruiting me."
Which schools are catching your eye? "Obviously, the four colleges who offered me. I have always told myself that who ever keeps me at the top of their list, I am going to keep on top of my list. I am not very particular. I will go anywhere. I also liked Virginia when I went to their camp. I liked it a lot up there. I also liked Alabama and Tennessee on my visits. Those are the three schools who have not offered that I am still interested in."
What are going to be the main factors in your decision? "Probably where I feel the most comfortable. It would be nice to get some early playing time, but at the same time, I want to have a lot of pride in the school I am playing for. I could wait a year or two before I played if that were the case. I just want to be proud of the school I am going to play for."
