The Wildcats just added more offensive firepower. Jordan Mosley, the class of 2021’s 40th-ranked wide receiver, notified Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald on Sunday morning that he was ready to become a Wildcat, according to Rivals.
Mosley was originally committed to Tennessee but de-committed on January 18 amidst a coaching change. NU pried away the four-star recruit from SEC schools like Mississippi State and South Carolina and Big Ten powerhouse Penn State.
With a 247Sports composite rating of 0.8996, Mosley is the highest-rated of all NU’s 2021 recruits. He joins Jacob Gill as the second receiver in the class. Northwestern also added wideout Stephon Robinson Jr, a transfer from Kansas, a couple of weeks ago.
Genson Hooper-Price and Bryce Kirtz, some of NU’s highest-rated wide receiver recruits in program history, have respective composite ratings of 0.8898 and 0.8810. Mosley is the school’s highest-rated pass catcher since superback Garrett Dickerson (0.9148) committed to Northwestern in 2013.
The 6-foot, 190-pound speedster from Mobile, Alabama, ran a 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds, according to his junior year highlight video. ESPN lists him as the 235th-ranked recruit in its list of the top 300 for the 2021 class.
Despite losing its starting trio of wideouts, Northwestern, with emerging talents Bryce Kirtz and Wayne Dennis Jr., plus Malik Washington, Robinson and now Mosley, has quickly replenished the position group with plenty of exciting talent.
