Pflugerville (Texas) corner Trai Mosley — a 5-foot-10, 170-pounder who visited for NU’s Big Red Weekend — announced on Twitter he was “officially” a Cornhusker.
“Checked out everything, campus life was great can’t wait to come on back, but NOW ‘I am Officially An Cornhusker’!!!!” read the tweet. Mosley’s Twitter profile picture is a shot of him standing next to the Tom Osborne/Brook Berringer statue outside Memorial Stadium.
Mosley told Huskers Illustrated he received the offer in camp after running a 4.43-second 40-yard dash and a one-on-one meeting with secondary coach Terry Joseph.
Mosley is a two-star recruit according to Rivals and 247Sports with zero reported offers.
Mosley said any future offers he receives won't matter because NU assistant Terry Joseph, Mosley's primary recruiter, evaluated the cornerback in the spring and “has always been straight up with me.
“You go to some camps and they tell you things to get you there and you don't get an offer,” said Mosley, who plays for Hendrickson High School. “Coach Joseph's been real down to earth.”
Hendrickson football coach Chip Killian said Mosley is a player who packs a big punch for his short frame.
“He's a got a 300-pound bench press,” Killian said. “He's extremely strong. Long arms. Best feet of any corner I've coached in a long time. And he'll hit you in the mouth.”
Tackling ability and a comfort with both man-to-man and zone coverage styles caught Joseph's eye, Mosley said.
“I know I like to hit,” Mosley said. “I'm not scared of anybody.”
