Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Seol athlete Matt Mosley is ranked as the No. 15 player in the state of Arizona by Rivals.com. But with a more improved game, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound frame and a great senior season that ranking could be moving up.
"I'm a better player today than what I was before," Mosley said.
"I'm better with my field awareness. I went to a few camps and they really taught me a lot on both sides of the ball. I have better knowledge of the game, and I know how to put myself in the right places at the right time."
But it's not like Mosley was a bad player before. He's one of Arizona's best.
"I'm a gamebreaker," he said. "I can take it long. I just love to have the ball in my hands, but I also like the defensive side of the ball. People try to test me and throw the ball to my side, but after they test me they don't do it anymore."
Mosley has offers from Arizona State, Oregon State and Montana. He's also in close contact with BYU, UCLA and Washington. There is no question as to which school his family wants him to end up with.
"Arizona State definitely interests me," Mosley said. "My parents want me to stay around the corner, so ASU is one of my top choices."
ASU assistant Tom Nordquist is in charge of recruiting Mosley and the Sun Devil's running back/recruiting coordinator is doing a good job with Mosley.
"He's a great guy," Mosley said. "Every time I have a question I can give him a call. He's a real positive guy. He's really excited about the potential of me going there."
Oregon State assistant Mike Cavanaugh is also doing a good job, so don't count out the Beavers.
"He's pretty cool," Mosley said. "He came down a couple of times to talk to my coach, and they all say he is a nice person. He's sent me a lot of good letters, and we talked on the phone."
While Arizona State is in good shape, Mosley said he's not in a rush to make a decision.
"I'm just going to make a decision when I'm ready," he said. "I want to go to some games and take some trips. I also want to remain focused on my senior season."
That season starts against Tucson High.
"I'm ready to hit somebody," he said. "We put the pads on for the first time on Monday."
