It didn’t take Dudley (NC) wideout/defensive back Emmanuel Moseley long to figure out that he wanted to play football with the Charlotte 49ers. Just weeks after being offered, Mosley gave the Niners a verbal, as first reported by the Charlotte Observer.
Moseley (6’1″, 180 lbs.), who was offered by East Carolina and North Carolina A&T, was a two-star recruit (Rivals.com) that was part of a Panthers team that went 7-5 (5-1 in 4A Metro play). But it was on defense where he was named an all-conference selection for his efforts as a cornerback in 2012. Going into 2013, he’ll be one to watch–and if he ends up signing, the staff will have a decision of where they want to put him on offense or defense in 2014.
Moseley is one of six verbal pledges for the 49ers thus far from the class of 2014. That now makes four verbals from the Carolinas overall–Moseley, West Rowan d-back Najee Tucker, South Carolina tight end R.J. Tyler and tackle Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux from Charlotte Christian. (LB Tristan Butcher from Oklahoma and OT Nate Davis from Northern Virginia are the only out-liers thus far). And with players continuing to pay visits to colleges they’re interested in, it’s likely that many more are soon around the corner.
