Mosley looking closely at Cuse
Mosley said he is looking at five schools – Syracuse, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Florida State and Clemson – but remains unsure when he'll come to his final decision. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound wing guard will be traveling all over the country this summer with Team Melo and has accepted invitations to the LeBron James and Kobe Bryant camps in Ohio and L.A., respectively.
"I'd like to make another visit [to Syracuse]," said Mosley, whose only out-of-state unofficial visit so far was to Syracuse this winter.
Mosley's connections to Syracuse are easily identified. He plays AAU ball for the aforementioned Team Melo and is close friends with incoming Cuse recruit Donte Green. But he also keeps close tabs on the recruiting and roster makeup of each team he's considering, and he expressed concern about the abundance of guards on the Orange roster.
"They've got a lot of guards coming in, so I'll have to look and see what's going on and get a better look at Syracuse," he said. "I'm willing to compete for a job, but there will be guys who have a few year head-start on me, so I'm gonna have to fight to play up there."
For an idea of what Mosley brings, there's a strong resemblance to former Temple standout Mark Karcher, who also played his high school ball at St. Frances. He's got a strong build, can score inside and out and is a tough competitor. He also has sneaky athleticism, at times coasting toward the hoop at half speed before raising high off the floor. In terms of being a high-major wing prospect he's a no-brainer.
Scout.com has Mosley rated as a top-40 prospect in his class. He has been to Maryland several times and is considering the Terps, of whom his father is a big fan. He would like to visit the other schools on his list this summer, during which he hopes to improve upon his ballhandling, shooting and quickness.
