5-9, 190-pound Henrico (Richmond, VA) defensive back/athlete Corey Mosley will head to Charlottesville today for an official visit. The visit to the University of Virginia will be his first official visit of his recruiting process. Mosley talks about the upcoming experience as well as his future plans in his decision making process.

“I’m just anxious to talk about what they want out of me as a player,” Mosley answered when asked what he is looking forward to finding out this weekend.

Neither Virginia nor Virginia Tech have indicated that a decision needs to be made soon.

“I don’t have any pressure right now, but they said they would let me know when crunch time is,” Mosley said.

Mosley has made numerous unofficial visits to UVa, but has only been to Virginia Tech once – for the senior camp earlier this summer. Familiarity with UVa gives the Cavs an edge right now, although Mosley says this weekend will be his most important visit yet.

“I am familiar with the Virginia program more, but this weekend is going to be a big factor,” Mosley said. “I’ll get to spend time with the players and coaches and stay the weekend.”


Has Mosley figured out which position he prefers to play on the next level?

“I still haven’t
