Long-Armed Receiver Mosley Shines

In 2008, Tyler Lee had a decent season as they made the playoffs and finished 4-1 in district play despite a 7-5 overall record. The Red Raiders return a lot of skill position talent including junior-to-be Marquise Mosley. The wideout camped at Texas and Burnt Orange Beat spoke with the star this weekend at the state tournament.

Marquise Mosley of Tyler Lee did not post the type of stats you might expect from a top recruit with just 7 catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns, but the junior-to-be certainly looks to contribute more in 2009. Mosley is a tall and long at 6-4, 205 pounds.

College recruiters have certainly taken note of Mosley's frame and speed and the Texas Longhorns hosted Mosley in June for a summer camp.

"It was amazing. I got to work against the best in my grade and the ones graduating this year. It's just an awesome experience. I learned a lot. I took a lot from the camp," Mosley told Burnt Orange Beat at the state 7 on 7 tournament this weekend.

Mosley reported that he ran a 4.55 at the Texas camp.

Mosley is still getting comfortable with the recruiting process and claims no one is leading for his services, but several teams have caught his eye.

"No favorites right now, but I am looking at Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and probably Oklahoma State," Mosley said.

Mosley is looking for a good situation to take his talents to the next level.

"First of all I want to get my education. And I want to go to a school that I can get enough playing time that I can show them what I can do it and work hard," Mosley said.

This summer, Mosley has been working out four days a week in addition to a hectic 7 on 7 schedule in an effort to prepare for a junior season that should be a good one for Mosley and the Red Raiders.

"I want to improve my strength and improve my hands," noted Mosley.

Tyler Lee will battle Desoto, John Tyler, Mesquite, Mesquite Horn, and North Mesquite for the district title.

Mosley is cousins with Texas Ex Nick Redwine. Mosley expects to attend a Texas game this season.
