Colorado Gets Verbal Commit From Cornerback Marques Mostly

The latest recruit for the Colorado Buffaloes is yet another defensive player. This time it is a cornerback in Marques Mosley from Upland, Calif., who gave his verbal commit to Colorado, and he is the Buffs 22nd recruit for the 2012 class.

Mosley's high school assistant coach Mike Esquivel gave a glowing review of his player:

"Marques has game changing ability," Esquivel said. "When the game was on the line, Marques is the guy we were going to. He never came off the field for us. Colorado recruited him as a cornerback but I could see them using him on special teams as well. He is one heck of a kickoff returner and punt returner. Marques has breakaway speed and on defense, he is a hitter."

According to the recruiting services they have him as a two- or three-star player with Rivals not having an evaluation of him at this time.

ESPN recruiting is the highest on Mosley and here is some of their evaluation:

Mosley displays the aggressive run stopping ability we look for when evaluating defensive backs. Has the size and athleticism for the safety position at the major level of competition. His frame appears capable of handling additional bulk over time. This guy is a tough customer willing to wrap tackle and punish when the opportunity exists; is effective covering kickoffs; does a good job avoiding blockers but will take them on to maintain coverage lanes; is also effective blocking downfield on punt returns.

Here are some highlights of Mosley:
