Coaches from both Virginia and Virginia Tech have contacted Henrico (VA) ATH Corey Mosley this month. The 5-9, 192-pound Mosley, who is anxious to begin his senior season tonight against Caroline County, gives the latest on his recruitment and answers whether or not one of the in-state programs has the current edge.

Mosley holds official offers from Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He has only heard from the two in-state programs thus far in September.

“Virginia Tech and UVa called, so we’re still in contact,” Mosley said. “I heard from my recruiting coaches, Coach Cavanaugh and Coach Mike [Groh]. They just wanted to make sure I have my head on straight, to see how everything’s going in school and with the team…just to find out what I was doing.”

Mosley says both programs remain very interested in acquiring his signature this coming February.

“Both really want me to come and both are really interested,” Mosley said. “I told both of them that I’m really interested in taking official visits during the season. I think we’ll try and set some dates the next time we talk.”

In our first update with Corey, he gave UVa a slight edge over Tech and Tennessee. Is that still the case?

“I communicate the most with UVa, so I’d say they have a better understanding of me as a player,” said Mosley, who is considering another visit to UVa tomorrow for the Wyoming game. “I have a better understanding of them than I do Virginia Tech. I wouldn’t say they have a huge advantage, but the level of comfort with UVa is increasing everyday. I’ve become kind of fond of UVa as a team. Their coaches continually tell me how much they want me to be a part of their team and what they think of me as a player.”

As stated above, Henrico begins its season tonight against Caroline. How is the team looking?

“This year, we have an outstanding offense from the receiving corps to the offensive line to the quarterback to the running backs,” Mosley said. “Our defense is not a weakness, but it’s the weakest part of our team right now. We have a lot of young guys who are students of the game. We have a good secondary. I think we’ll be all right.”

Few more questions…

Will how each team performs this 2006 season be a factor in Mosley’s decision?

“I’m going to be watching, but, hey, that’s why they’re recruiting me,” Mosley
