C.J. Mosley visits Tuscaloosa
"The visit to Alabama went really well," said C.J. Mosley. "I had a very good meeting with coach Smart. He talked to me about the defense and where they would play me. He was telling me what all I would have to do to play early. "Coach Saban didn't really say too much. I told him coach Willis leaving didn't affect my decision. We really just talked about the basics. He is happy I am here and ready to work with me next year." Mosely credited his relationship with the coaching staff as a big reason for his commitment to Alabama. "I was fine with it," Mosley said about Willis leaving. "In college it's all about business decisions. That's what he made. He told me he wants to be a head coach down the road. It's just a stepping stone for him. "I spoke to coach Pruitt this weekend. He was just letting me know he would be the one who would keep up with me. He is a good guy and easy to talk to." Mosley's favorite part of the trip was about another assistant coach at Alabama. "Going over the defense with Kirby Smart was the best part of my trip," he said. "I was happy he stayed at Alabama. He is ready to win more championships." Alabama landed a pair of U.S. Army All-American linebackers in 2009 with Nico Johnson and Tana Patrick. "Nico Johnson was my host this weekend," Mosley said. "I talk to Nico every time I go up there. I actually requested for him to be my host. I know we have a good group that is going to be there. I can't wait to get there on June 1." Mosley spent time during the weekend visit hanging out with a few of his future incoming teammates. "I hung out with Nick Perry, Corey Grant and Jarrick Williams," he said. "I think Jarrick and I will probably room together. We have a great group of guys coming in. We are ready to work hard and keep the Tide rolling."
