Mosley's Experience Tough to Measure

Sean Mosley

Shooting guard Sean Mosley has plenty of offers to mull over and the Hokies appear to be near the top of his list.

Few basketball players have displayed the maturity or basketball intelligence of Sean Mosley, a 6-4, 205-pound prospect from St. Frances Academy in Baltimore. His experience and intangibles make him one of the top guard prospects in the country.

"I'm a guy that just works hard and plays hard," said Mosley, rated by Scout.com as the No. 10 shooting guard in the nation. "I can bring a lot to the table. I'll do whatever my coach asks me to do. I'm a guy that played every position when I was growing up, so that's made me learn a lot of things about the game.

"I had to learn the game well coming up because I'm used to playing with older guys from back home. I've played against guys like Sam Cassell and Melo (Carmelo Anthony). I've played with a lot of guys that had all they needed but just slipped up. Some guys back here just took the wrong road or left too early. Playing against guys like that, I've had to use my head a lot. I've learned a lot from playing them."

While he is quick to say he does not have any favorites, the five schools that "first come to mind" are Florida State, Maryland, Syracuse, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

"I don't want to say I have a top five or a top anything, but those are the the ones that first come to mind. They just catch my mind.

"With Florida State, I just really like their head coach (Leonard Hamilton). He's straight forward and we've got a real good relationship.

"At Virginia Tech, I really like their coach's style. I think I'd fit in real well with what they like to do. Everybody that I've talked to has said good things about them too.

"Maryland … that's the hometown school, so I've got people pushing me there. That's where my dad wants me to go, but it's going to end up being my decision.

"With Syracuse I like the atmosphere around the school and their basketball program. They've got a real good team every year and I have a good relationship with an assistant coach up there.

"West Virginia just now came into the picture. I like what I've heard so far. I'm excited to hear from someone like them, because they have a good program and it shows that new schools are still looking at me.

I'm open right now. I'm going to be narrowing things down as I go." Mosley, a four-star prospect, plans on announcing his decision in November. He plans on visiting Florida State and Clemson in late June or early July.
