University of Virginia head coach Tony Bennett is giving St. Anthony’s (Jersey City, N.J.) class of 2016 combo guard Jagan Mosely a closer look.
“Coach Bennett called me before I left for Victor Oladipo Camp and we had a 20 minute conversation about his interest in me,” Mosely wrote in a direct message over Twitter. The 6’3″, 200-pound rising senior has competed at the Ty Lawson/Victor Oladipo All-American Camp Tuesday-Friday of this week. Coach Bennett was in attendance at least one of those days.
Mosely added: “[Bennett] said he already has two commitments in my class/position but they’re looking for an athletic backcourt piece that’s able to guard the main guy on the other team.”
A second-team all-state selection this past season, Mosely averaged 13 points per game while helping St. Anthony’s to a 28-2 record. He played for the New Jersey Playaz on the Nike EYBL circuit this spring and summer, averaging 11.7 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in 17 games. Mosely shot 49.6-percent from the field including 25-percent from 3-point range (just 24 of his 137 shots were from beyond the arc).
In five games at the Peach Jam last week, Mosely averaged 11.2 points per game while making 47.6-percent of his field goals. He made 4 of 9 attempts from beyond the arc.
Georgia Tech, Harvard, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Seton Hall, SMU, Temple and Xavier are among the schools that have offered the Rivals and 247Sports.com 3-star prospect. Where does he stand in his recruitment?
“I’ll start taking visits in August and I plan on committing before my senior season begins,” answered Mosely, who claims no favorites at this point.
Mosely, who attended UVa’s Elite Camp in August of 2013, indicated he would be interested if an offer comes from the Cavaliers.
“My interest in UVa has been high since the camp in 2013,” Mosely wrote.
An excellent student, Mosely carries a 4.2 GPA.
