Itâ€™s official. Sean Mosley is headed to Maryland. The Rivals150 guard announced his decision on Wednesday.
Mosley, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound guard from St. Francis High School, continues the strong Baltimore to Maryland connection that the Terps have tapped into over the years. Mosley joins five-star forward Terrence Jennings in the 2008 recruiting class for the ACC program.
"I had the most confidence in them because they recruited me as hard as anyone," Mosley said. "They've developed a good relationship with me and never let up. They stuck with me when I had good tournaments and bad tournaments."
Maryland landed Mosley over strong interest from Syracuse, Florida State and Clemson. The four-star guard is the No. 62 ranked player in the class of 2008.
Mosley, a strong bodied guard, has proven himself with strong showings in the spring and summer for the last three years on the 17 and under circuit. He said he's hoping to have the same kind of success as a freshman.
"Gary Williams has seen me play a couple of times before and he said he liked the fact that I'm a hard worker and that I'm going to do anything to win,â€ Mosley said. "If you can do that for Gary Williams, you'll play."
The Terps went to Baltimore twice in 2007, landing big men Braxton Dupree and Dino Gregory. The closeness to home played a big part in his decision, Mosley said.
"It's not that far from home so my family can just jump in the car and come and see me play. They don't have to drive too far or fly to see me," Mosley said.
Mosley said he was ready to celebrate his decision shortly after his press conference.
"It's my mother's birthday today, too," Mosley said.
Talk about a day to remember.
