Corey Mosley certainly is the subject of an in-state recruiting battle between Virginia and Virginia Tech. Both staffs are working the 5-9, 192-pound prospect hard and he plans to give both schools a hard look. In fact, the Henrico High School (VA) star has set official visits to both programs.

“I talked to Coach Cavanaugh and I’ve already set up an official visit to Virginia Tech for the first weekend in December,” Mosley said. “I also plan on getting up there for a game. I know I’m going to UVa’s game versus Miami on November 18th. I’m taking an official visit there for the weekend after the Virginia Tech official visit. I’m trying to get around to Tennessee.

In previous interviews, Mosley had stated that UVa was his leader. Things certainly seem closer right now, although the Cavs do seem to still have the edge.

“For me, I think I’d have the better opportunity at Virginia because Tech has a lot of commits and a lot of players returning…especially at that running back spot,” Mosley said. Virginia Tech is recruiting him more for offense, while UVa is looking more for defense. He is listed as an athlete because of his ability on both sides of the ball.

“So, there may be more opportunity for me to play early at Virginia than Virginia Tech. I’m not saying it would be better to go to UVa over Virginia Tech. It’s tough. I’m still waiting to see what will help me make my decision. I think that, after my
