It has almost been two weeks since Corey Mosley made an official visit to the University of Virginia. The 5-9, 190-pound Henrico (Richmond, VA) standout athlete still has not made a decision between making a commitment to UVa or making a second official visit, which would be to Virginia Tech on the weekend of January 20th. Is he close to do so?
Right now, the percentage is with the Cavaliers.
“I would say the chances are over 50 percent of me committing [to Virginia],” Mosley said. “I would say it’s about 70 percent and maybe rising. It’s inching up there.
“I’m still tightening down on my decision. It’s on my mind every day. I’m still deciding for sure if I want to take the Virginia Tech visit.”

The UVa staff continues to stay on Mosley.
“They’ve been texting me a lot,” Mosley said. “They are encouraging me to commit there. Coach Mike [Groh] sends me a text message almost every day.”
Has the UVa staff mentioned anything about running out of scholarship spots?
“They haven’t said that, but Al and Mike said they would let me know if I needed to make a decision,” Mosley said.
Virginia is recruiting Mosley as a defensive back, whereas Virginia Tech is leaning towards playing him on offense. Position does not seem to be a big factor right now.
“Virginia Tech likes me as an athlete, but they have said they like me as a running back,” Mosley said. “I’m fond of offense and defense. I don’t think position will be a problem for me. I think I have ability...
