Coffeyville (Kan.) Coffeyville C.C. has a great tradition of producing defensive linemen, and it looks like the Red Ravens have their next big-time prospect at the position in the works.
Meet Brandon Mosley, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound strongside defensive end that already has picked up scholarship offers from Kansas State and FIU. Mosley redshirted this past season after transferring from Georgia Military and is originally from Jefferson, Ga.
"I probably am what you would call a run stopper," Mosley said. "That's probably my biggest strength. I like to stop the run and think I do a good job of it. Spring ball is going really well. In our last scrimmage I graded out really well. We have our final scrimmage on Friday."
Mosley said he was on track to be heavily recruited coming out of high school but his academics kept most schools away. He knew early on he would have to take the junior college route. He ended up at Georgia Military, one of the top junior college programs in the nation. However, military life didn't suit him well.
"I didn't like marching at 5:30 in the morning," he said. "So I went back to my high school coach, and he sent some film out. Coffeyville was one of the schools, and they really liked what they saw. So I ended up here, redshirted last season.
"It's been 2007 since I've played in an actual game, and it was tough to watch last season from the sidelines, but I'm really ready to make an impact this season. I think we're going to be really good."
Mosley said recruiting is going really good, too.
He picked up early offers from Kansas State and FIU. He said he recently took an unofficial visit to Manhattan and came away very impressed.
"I'm pretty excited to have that offer," Mosley said. "It'd be a great place to further my career at. It's a pretty nice college town. It's a small college town that reminded me a lot of Athens, Ga. I think I could be a good fit there."
Mosley, who is a mid-term graduate, said he's in no huge rush to make a decision, however.
"I want to explore all of my options and see what is the best fit," he said.
