Charlotte 49ers Football: '14 verbal Emmanuel Moseley commits to Tennessee

The thing about a verbal commitment is that unless an athlete puts pen to paper, they are free to back away from that verbal and commit to another school.  Such is the case with Emmanuel Moseley.

The cornerback from Dudley (NC), who originally verballed to play at Charlotte beginning in 2014, announced on his Twitter last night that he had decided to play with the University of Tennessee instead.

While it is a disappointment as it appeared the Niners would be getting a fine athlete, it’s the nature of the business in high school recruiting.  A few things that Tennessee has for it is its history as a winning program (moreso in the past than recently), as well as those three letters–SEC.  Moseley apparently felt that the opportunity to play for Butch Davis and a Volunteers program that appears to be trending upward was much better than what he could get in Charlotte with the Niners, and that’s a decision that should be respected.

Charlotte still has some intriguing verbals on board at this point–Cartersville (GA) quarterback Brooks Barden–who has gotten some looks from some BCS schools–as well as local wideout Workpeh Kofa from Independence here in Charlotte, who has been offered by Louisville.  But, moving forward, Moseley is a name you can take of the list.
