Following a breakout campaign a year ago, where he helped lead his team to the MHSAA Division 1 state championship game, West Bloomfield (MI) 2019 wide receiver Tre Mosley quickly saw his recruitment take off and saw a number of offers pour in throughout the offseason.
But for Mosley, making a college decision before the start of his senior season of high school season was important to him and ultimately decided to commit to Michigan State back in June, choosing the Spartans over 21 other Division 1 offers.
Spartan Nation caught up with Mosley following West Bloomfield’s 24-20 win over Rochester Adams on Friday and Mosley said he’s happy that he doesn’t have to worry about his recruitment and can instead focus on the current season.
“That was my main goal,” he said. “Me and Lance (Dixon), we wanted to get our recruiting done before our senior season started, so we can focus on getting back to Ford Field and winning a state championship this year. I’m glad it’s out of the way.”
After receiving his offer from Michigan State in March, Mosley continued to see high-level Division 1 offers come in, but said he chose the Spartans because he felt that Michigan State could help him develop on and off the field.
“It was great,” he said. “I chose the school that I feel like showed the most love to me and it was mutual. I wanted a place that would develop me as a player and as a person, so Michigan State was the best fit for me.”
Since the beginning of his recruitment by Michigan State and since committing to the Spartans, Mosley said that his relationship with wide receivers coach Terrence Samuel has continued to grow and stay in contact regularly.
“Me and coach Samuel have a great relationship, we can joke with each other, we can have a good conversation all of the time,” he said. “Whenever I need him, I can contact him and I know he’ll answer the phone.”
In recent years, Michigan State has had several freshmen receive opportunities to play early, most notably Cody White in 2017 and Jalen Nailor in 2018, and Mosley could be in line for a similar opportunity when he steps on campus in 2019.
Mosley said that while the possibility of seeing the field early in his college career is appealing, he also said he would be willing to wait to see the field as well if that’s what the coaching staff decided.
“I stay in contact with Jalen (Nailor) and Cody (White) last year, they went up there and they did their job and you can tell, they’re on the field balling,” he said. “That’s my goal, just go up there and do what I have to for the team. If that means come in and play right away, I’m down for it, but if I have to sit down and wait my turn, I’m fine with that too. I just want to come in there and help the team as much as possible.”
Like many players who commit to a school early, Mosley told Spartan Nation that he has already done some recruiting within his own West Bloomfield team and regularly talks to 2021 4-star running back Donovan Edwards and 2020 4-star safety Makari Paige about possibly joining him at Michigan State
“Definitely, I’m trying to get Donovan, Makari, we’ve got a lot of young talent on our team,” he said. “I’m trying to get those guys to join me in East Lansing in the future.”
