Moseley Discusses Tide Camp

Clint Moseley, Scout.com three-star quarterback from Leroy, (Ala.), has picked up two new offers and camped in Tuscaloosa as the 6-4, 200-pounder is finally seeing his recruitment take flight. Moseley, who led the 2A Bears to back-to-back championships in football and baseball, talked with ScoutSouth.com about the camp and new offers.

"I thought I did well," Clint Moseley said of the Alabama camp. "I was satisfied with my performance. Coach Mac (Jim McElwain) helped me out a lot. I got so much better because of him, and I was only there a day and a half."

"We did a lot of running. It was brutal. I think I held up well though. I did my best in 7-on-7 drills. I made the All-Saban team. There were quite a few of us that made it. There were like 400 people overall and like 70 people were recognized. I thought that was pretty cool especially since I was there for such a short period."

"The best part of the camp was all the time I got to speak with Coach Mac. I got 10-times better."

"Tyler Love (2008 Alabama signee) spoke to us at one point. He said that Alabama is exactly what you expect it to be. It is a lot of hard work, but it is the University of Alabama and a special place. I would rate the camp a ‘9' out of ‘10'."

Alabama has long been thought as one of Moseley's top choices, and the Tide finally gave the gunslinger an idea of what their process is with one quarterback (Scout.com four-star quarterback AJ McCarron) already on board for the 2009 class.

"Coach Mac said they were going to take one more quarterback in this year's class. They have seven guys they are choosing from, and I am one of the seven. He said they will make their decision sometime in the fall," Moseley said.

"I think this camp will really help me. Even if Alabama chooses to go another direction, I think some other schools will take notice of what I did at the camp. It made me better. I have always loved Alabama. I mean it's Alabama. This was a great experience."

A few prospects stood out to Moseley at the camp.

"Tim Simon from Cordova looked good. I was impressed with him. Robert Cooper, the quarterback from Daphne looked pretty good too. Ryan Williams, from American Heritage, Fla., looked good at quarterback. He is a year younger than me. He has my height (6-4), but is about 25 pounds heavier. I think he will be a big-time recruit, although he was a little out of shape," Moseley said.

Moseley picked up two new offers from Arkansas State and South Alabama in the last few weeks to move him to three total offers including UAB. He talked of his latest offers.

"South Alabama's Dameyune Craig offered me not too long ago. I liked him. He really knows what he is talking about. They are just now trying to get their program started. They will just be D-2 though. He told me how good it would be to get a hometown kid like me to come and be the quarterback of the program," Moseley said.

USA will begin competing in 1AA/FCS in 2009 and will be a full-fledged member of 1A/FBS in 2013.

"Coach (Maurice) Harris and coach (Tyler) Siskey from Arkansas State came by the school not too long ago. I don't know much about their program, but I am learning. I know they played Texas close last year. That is a plus. I really like their coaches. After they left the school, it was about two days before they called and offered."

With three offers on the table, Moseley talked the status of each school.

"I really don't have a favorite," he explained. "I can't put one school ahead of the other right now. It is really early in the process. Alabama, UAB, Memphis, Troy, Arkansas State and USA are the schools really looking at me hard right now."

Moseley talked a little more in-depth of a few of the schools showing attention.

UAB (offer): "Coach Tyson Helton is probably one of my favorite coaches I have met in the process. I really like their system. It is basically the same offense we run at Leroy. I feel real comfortable with everything UAB has to offer."

Troy: "Troy is a school that is just now showing attention. Coach (Randy) Butler called and said they were not planning on taking any quarterbacks in this class. He wants me to come to their camp later this summer. He said if I show up and play 'lights out' they will have no choice but to offer me. I will definitely make that camp."

Memphis: "I also like the coaches at Memphis. They run the spread and made it to a bowl game. They are a school I will keep my eye on."
