Signee Spotlight: Destin Mosley
"Then as a sophomore I lead the team in tackles and was named defensive MVP of the district. My junior year was a big year for me. I had 1,326 yards, plus three interception on D. One I took back 100 yards for a score. My senior year I was banged up (MCL sprain), missed two games, but still had 936 yards and nine touchdowns."
All in all it was a stellar career for Mosley at Jefferson High School, home of the Bulldogs, and one that did not go without notice, especially by Kansas State.
"Coach Snyder is the top reason I chose to go to K-State," Mosley said. "I love him. He's one of a kind. I also love the town of Manhattan. The facilities there are great.
"I visited many schools, but the feeling I got at K-State was different. I love how it's modeled on family. The people there are your sisters and your brothers who care about you. The support for the team is outstanding. Also, I got along really well with the players. They seemed like people who I would want to be around, very friendly and outgoing."
Recruited by K-State as an "athlete" they think they want Mosley to start out his career as a Wildcat at wide receiver, a position he knows little about, but is willing to learn.
"I feel like I have good hands and the athleticism to play the position," Mosley said. "I just haven't had much experience there, except for making catches coming out of the backfield.
"Right now I'm studying the playbook, and getting in shape. I run running track, but run a lot on my own. I do plenty of stretching so not to injury myself. Lately I've been running hills for endurance."
Mosley says he speaks often with wide receivers coach Michael Smith, as well as fellow class of '10 recruit Joe Bonugli from Warren High School in San Antonio. He plans to take a year to adjust to college life in Manhattan and also his new position.
"Redshirting the first year will help prepare me both physically and mentally," Mosley said. "I'll be there five years, and I'm there to give 100-percent. I want to know when they need me, I'll be ready.
"When I arrive, I plan on hitting the books and getting used to the position of wide receiver by learning good routes. When I graduate in early June, I'll be at K-State within the next two days. I can't wait to get started."
Mosley, 5-9, 185, wore No. 2 for Coach Scott Hale's Jefferson Bulldogs. Hee was named All-East Texas and All-District as a junior and senior.
