Hog commitment ready to make a difference
Arkansas receiver commitment Torrance Mosley.
Arkansas receiver commitment Torrance Mosley planned to officially visit the Hogs this weekend but will instead visit on Dec. 13 because of the inclement weather.
Mosley, 5-10, 175, 4.41 seconds in the 40 yard dash, of Geismar (La.) Dutchtown has high goals for next year when he’s in Fayetteville.
“Not be one of the receivers but one of the top receivers in the country,” said Mosley, who committed to the Hogs during a July visit. “I just want to have a good season and be a good player overall and try and break a couple records.”
When he and teammate and receiver commitment Corey McBride make to Arkansas next weekend it will be an opportunity to get a better feel for their future home.
“Meet my teammates and getting to know the coaches better and have a wonderful time while I’m up there,” said Mosley of what he wants to experience.
Mosley played running back as a sophomore and this season. He believes that’s enhanced his ability as a receiver.
“Every year my balanced has improved while I’m running the ball,” he said. “My vision improved towards the end of the season. When I have the ball in my hands I’m pretty dangerous. Hopefully I’ll make a lot of big plays for the team. I know when I get there they’re going to make me a way better receiver better than I am now.”
Arkansas’ struggles and final record of 3-9 never made Mosley second guess his decision.
“It really wasn't tough,” Mosley said. “My mind was made up and I was going to Arkansas. That’s my main focus and I’m not worried about it.”
He sees the opportunity to help Coach Bret Bielema turn the program around.
“I want to come in and make a difference ,” he said. “That’s my goal. Come in make a difference.”
Mosley is confident is made the right decision to be a Razorback.
“God wouldn’t put me in the position to go to a school like Arkansas,” Mosley said. “I know they’ll make me a better receiver. The new quarterback we have coming in and all of the other commits we’re going to have a pretty good team.”
