UA, AU visits ahead for Mosley

Theodore (AL) linebacker C.J. Mosley has been impressing scouts and coaches for quite some time already and recently the 6-foot-2, 212-pound defender wowed onlookers once again at the Elite Action Combine in Vestavia Hills (AL).

"I did pretty well at the combine. Individually, I would say my performance was really strong. I didn't really participate in the one-on-one stuff but I was very happy with how I showed out."

Mosley, who boasts a 4.5-second forty time and a 4.3-second shuttle time, has been relatively quiet this summer after amassing an impressive offer list in the spring. Mosley's sole school visit or camp appearance came in Tuscaloosa last month.

"The only other camp or event that went to this summer before the combine was the 7-on-7 camp at Alabama. My teammates were up there participating and I went up to support them and to talk with the coaches a little."

"My relationship with the Alabama coaching staff is great. I've talked to them many times and I probably know four or five of them pretty well at this point. Coach (James) Willis is the main one recruiting me and he's really a great guy. He's got a lot of character, he's fun, he's easy to talk to and he's sort of closer to my age so he's real easy to relate to."

The nation's No. 2 inside linebacker prospect still has a long way to go before making a final decision but he has two camps he's scheduled to attend in the month of July that could help sway his eventual decision.

"In a few weeks I'll be going to Auburn's camp and then just a couple days after that I'm going to a camp at Alabama. It will be a good chance for me to see both schools and get a good feel for the two different coaching staffs."

"I've also got a 7-on-7 event with my team down Mobile later this month as well. Other than that I'm spending my time working out with my teammates and trying to improve my strength, especially in my upper body."

As arguably the most highly-touted uncommitted player in the state, Mosley can expect heavy attention from Alabama and Auburn throughout the fall but don't expect other major powers such as Oklahoma, Florida State and Clemson to let the four-star prospect go without a fight.

"I'm not in a hurry to make a decision right now. I want to take all my official visits and really think things through. Really in my mind, everybody's even right now. I'm just going to go through the process and see who stands out the most."

As a junior, Mosley racked up an impressive 176 total tackles.
